VaporGrip® Xtra Agent is a tank mix adjuvant that delivers additional VaporGrip® Technology to further reduce potential dicamba volatility.
The availability of protons (H+) in solution significantly increases the potential for dicamba acid to be formed. Dicamba acid is the volatile form and can potentially volatilize. The availability of protons is influenced by a number of factors including salt of dicamba, tank-mix partners and overall solution pH. Therefore, it is important to only utilize approved low-volatility dicamba and approved tank-mix partners for applications.
VaporGrip Technology binds protons (H+) and removes them from the spray solution to significantly limit the formation of dicamba acid.
VaporGrip Xtra Agent is a tank-mix adjuvant that delivers additional VaporGrip Technology to spray tanks for further reduction of potential dicamba volatility.
VaporGrip Xtra Agent should be used at a minimum rate of 20 oz/A.
VaporGrip Xtra Agent has been thoroughly tested* in field trials by Bayer and U.S. academic weed scientists.
In the tank, there is the potential for dicamba acid (DCH) to form in the solution and create off-target movement of dicamba through volatility after spraying.
In the tank, VaporGrip Technology reduces the formation of (DCH) in solution, minimizing volatility potential of dicamba after spraying.
Humidome** studies measuring the air concentration of dicamba demonstrate that VaporGrip Xtra Agent provides additional volatility reduction.
Black brackets in the middle of the bars represent error bars that take into account the differences between various measurements and replications in each test to assign levels of confidence to the results.

*Testing of VaporGrip® Xtra Agent was done in combination with XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology. Expect similar trends with other dicamba products.
