May 13, 2009 – Guelph, Ont. – Enhance is a new brand of nonionic adjuvant that contains no nonylphenols or nonyl phenol ethoxylates (NPE).

With its toxicological profile, Enhance provides crop safety. Field trials of the new formulation show excellent efficacy. Enhance can be used at significantly lower rates than methylated seed oils (MSOs), crop oil concentrates (COCs) and petroleum based surfactants.

Enhance can be used on a variety of crops, with a wide range of products and with no adverse effects.

According to officials with Norac Concepts, Enhance adjuvant performs at rates similar to 90 per cent nonionic surfactants and at rates 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 of the rates of MSOs and COCs.

Enhance is based on compliance with the Canadian Environmental Protection Agency (CEPA), pertaining to the removal of the nonlyl phenols or nonyl phenol ehtoxylates, or a reduction of these to a level of less than one per cent from Canadian pesticides.

Enhance is available from Engage Agro in Guelph, Ont.
