Cover force is a stimulator that improves the wetting, spreading and penetration of agriculture chemicals like insecticides, herbicides and fungicides.
Active Ingredient in Cover Force Stimulator
Polyether Modified Silicone + Alk yloxpolethyleneglycol
The polyethene glycols show characteristics of organic solvents and it is used as plant and flower preservatives. This ingredient also serves as carriers for plant hormones, and solubilizers for agriculture chemicals, such as benzene-derived insecticides. Due to excellent humectant properties, PEGs are used as anti-dusting agents in many agricultural compositions. Polyether Modified Silicone has low surface tension, good flexibility characteristics and antistatic properties, good flow malleable, lowering the viscosity, wettability and auxiliary dispersion, and good lubricity and wear resistance.
Using Agrochemicals on Farms
Many farmers choose to use chemicals to keep weeds and pests from destroying their crops and to add more nutrients to the soil. There are three different kinds of pesticides; herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. All three of these pesticides are used to kill different kinds of pests that can be found on a farm. Farmers that make the decision not to use any chemicals are called organic farmers.
