A Non Ionic Surfactant is recommended to be used with Ferti-lome Weed Free Zone for best results. A surfactant increases the absorption, translocation and sticking of insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and liquid fertilizers on plants. Many weeds have a waxy cuticle on the leaves/foliage/stem surfaces that will affect the herbicide application from aborbing thoroughly, the surfactant works as a “sticking agent” to prevent that. Not all herbicides require a surfactant. Be sure to read the herbicide product label for your treatment to see if a surfactant is or is not recommended.
