    So far, so good

    By Gray on 08/13/2016

    This seems like a good surfactant, although it has a different chemical composition from the one I am used to using. As long as this product aids the herbicide it is mixed with and helps kill weeds quickly, I'm happy. The price was a real plus for me, so I hope it is just as effective as the other one. On my initial order, UPS reported a spill or leakage of the product in transit, causing a re-order and quite a delay in receiving my order. The reason the container(s) leaked, I believe, is that there is no additional seal inside the cap. The cap is the only thing preventing a leak. If the cap is not tight enough or is somehow loosened, it is almost certain a leak will occur.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
How does this compare to a methylated seed oil (MSO) surfactant?

MSO surfactants are recommended by some herbicide manufacturers.

A
This product is a non-ionic surfactant that contains alkylaryl polyethoxyethanol. The type of surfactant used will depend upon the weather conditions and the size of the weeds. A methylated seed oil (MSO) would be used when weeds are stressed or the weather is extremely dry. A nonionic product, such as the Surf-Ac 820, can be used in normal weather conditions when weeds and small and well. Oil based surfactants are recommended when using for the control of grasses (unless it specifically says on the label not to use an oil based surfactant).
