Buffering Agents

Buffering agents are designed to adjust and maintain water pH to a specific range, usually to a neutral range near 7.  Their primary function is to mitigate alkaline hydrolysis of pesticides due to a higher pH water.  Their secondary function is to maintain a pH range suitable for specific pesticides.  For example, Glyphosate is most effective at a pH range of 5 – 6, while Bidrin is most effective at a range of 5.5 – 6.5.

ENVELOP is a compatibility agent that is designed to allow pesticides to be mixed that otherwise would separate and form layers.
