2 Spray droplet management tool – Increases the opportunity for canopy penetration and coverage – Manipulates the full droplet spectrum – Provides more uniform droplet sizes Features and Benefits

3 Unique proprietary formulation – Combination of paraffinic and modified seed oils – Excellent emulsifiers for easy mixing of fungicides in water and/or slow release nitrogen (SRN28) – Drift reduction additive for droplet management Features and Benefits

4 Downdraft with herbicides and fungicides – Provides increased overall plant coverage – Reduces droplet evaporation – Reduces spray drift liability – Allows for increased weed control and disease resistance Features and Benefits

5 % Volume Laser Diffraction Wind Tunnel Study University of Queensland - Dr. Andrew Hewitt Spray Droplet Diameter Wind Speed: 15 mph (Ground) Spray Volume: 10 gpa Nozzle: XR PSI: 40

6 % Volume Laser Diffraction Wind Tunnel Study University of Queensland - Dr. Andrew Hewitt Spray Droplet Diameter Wind Speed: 15 mph (Ground) Spray Volume: 10 gpa Nozzle: AI PSI: 60

7 % Volume Laser Diffraction Wind Tunnel Study University of Queensland - Dr. Andrew Hewitt Spray Droplet Diameter Wind Speed: 15 mph (Ground) Spray Volume: 10 gpa Nozzle: TT PSI: 40

8 Features and Benefits Best adjuvant option on corn and soybean fungicide applications – Increases fungicide effectiveness – Ensures that the active ingredient gets to the intended target – Extends drying time allowing the fungicide more time to work

9 Fungicide Features and Benefits Improved overall plant health – Boosts a plant’s natural defense system – Improved photosynthesis process – Increased stress tolerance – Improved utilization of nutrients Control of major foliar diseases – Increased tolerance to bacterial & viral infections Stronger stalks and better grain quality – Faster, more efficient harvest Increased yield opportunity !!

10 Superior Canopy Penetration and Coverage with Downdraft 2008 KSU Aerial Trial w/ Dr. Bob Wolf

11 Downdraft Yield Enhancement +2 bu. corn means $12+/acre 2008 KSU Aerial Trial w/ Dr. Bob Wolf

12 Downdraft Disease Reduction

13 Recommendations Excellent for use with aerial or ground applied fungicides Can be used in combination with herbicides and insecticides Easily cleans off equipment Use Rate - 4 ounces per acre

14 Summary Downdraft enhances activity by ensuring that the active ingredient gets to the intended target Downdraft delivers more droplets into the canopy and onto the leaves increasing effectiveness Downdraft helps increase yields and profit opportunities!!
