Objective
The objectives of this project are as follows:a) Formulate and reformulate herbicide adjuvants for use with growth regulator herbicides with the goal of reducing their volatility and off-target movement.b) Prevent loss of postemergence herbicide activity when the herbicides are applied at a time when there is dew on the leaves by the formulation of adjuvants that prevent loss and determine the basis for the protection.c) Use of nanotechnology to formulate novel adjuvants to enhance compatibility with herbicides and other adjuvants.
