What is Powerplant Spread All-90?
Spread All-90 is a general purpose non-ionic surfactant used to increase absorption, translocation, and penetration and sticking of agricultural spray solutions. It can be used with most insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, acaricides, defoliants, desiccants and wettable powders to improve performance of the active spray ingredient by giving them more uniform distribution and better wetting of the plant surface. It contains 90% of active ingredient concentrate and it is designed to ensure top performance in the field. SPREAD ALL-90 is neither insecticide nor fertilizer and it does not reduce the amount of pesticide needed below the recommended use rate on a pesticide label. However it is used to enhance the performance of the legal amount of a pesticide that may be used.
How does Spread All-90 work?
Spread All-90 works by several modes of action.
Spread All-90 helps spray droplets stick to the plant, resulting in less runoff.
Spread All-90 reduces the surface tension of water droplets causing them to flatten or spread on the leaf surface. This allows more surface area for the chemical to come in contact with the leaf.
Spread All-90 wets the surface area allowing the crop protection product to spread across the leaf surface.
Spread All-90’s very unique chemistry enables it to also act as a penetrator ensuring uptake of crop protection products.
Spread All-90 Prevents crystallization of the active ingredient on the leaf surface
Spread All-90 Slows the drying of, and increasing the water retention in, spray droplets once on the leaf surface
Spread All-90 assures spray droplets do not remain suspended on hairs, scales or other surface projections
These multifaceted features allow Spread All-90 more spreading, wetting and penetrative properties to ensure the effectiveness of many crop protection products on a wide range of crops.
How to use Spread All-90?
With Insecticides, Fungicides, acaricide, wettable powder, Foliar Fertilisers and Defoliators
Fill the spray tank half full with water. Add the required amount of herbicide as directed by its label with the agitator running. Ensure that the insecticide/fungicide is completely mixed before proceeding to next step.
Add Spread All-90 to the spray mixture@5ml/15 liter and agitate thoroughly and then add remaining amount of water.
Spray normally on the crop.

For Use as an Irrigation Aid
For use as irrigation aids use Spread All-90 @1.5ml/litre of water. Spray 150 ml of Spread All-90 in at least 100 litres of water per acre directly on the soil about 12 hours prior to irrigating the land. Let the water flow into the land see how it penetrate the soil better and also spreads better.
The above mentioned spray of the Spread All-90 will remain effective about 4 weeks. Repeat the above steps for irrigation after a month.
