What is APSA-80?
APSA-80, a product of Amway is an all purpose spray adjuvant which on mixing with insecticides, fungicides, herbicides and defoliators increases their efficacy. As a result of that, the crops, fruits and vegetable are better protected from diseases, pests and unwanted herbs, resulting in more productive yield. This adjuvant has 80% of active ingredients and this can be mixed in any solution to improve its performance many times
Note : APSA-80 is neither an insecticide nor a fertiliser. It is an adjuvant that enhances the performances of insecticides and fertilisers and also helps water or solution to penetrate deeper.
How does APSA-80 work?
APSA - 80 contains special elements - ' Non Ironic Surfactants' that break down the surface tension of the water. These surfactants work on the surface of the water droplet to reduce its tendency to bead up by pulling the water and the wax on the leaf surface together, reducing the water's surface tension and causing the water droplet to spread out. When the water used in pesticide sprays spreads out more evenly, the result is much better pesticide coverage. Adding APSA-80 helps insecticides, defoliators and foliar fertilisers to penetrate the surface of the leaf faster and more evenly.
How to Use APSA-80?
With Insecticides, Fungicides, Foliar Fertilisers and Defoliators:
Prepare a solution if insecticides / fungicides / foliar fertilisers / defoliators and water. Follow the mixing instructions recommended by the pesticide manufacturer.
Mix 5ml of APSA-80 ( 1 / 4th capful) per 15litres of pestcide or foliar fetiliser solution.
Spray normally on the crop
With Post - Emergent Herbicides :
Make a solution of the post-emergent hherbicide to be used with water in the spray tank. Follow the mixing instructions recommended by the herbicide manufacturer.
Mix 20ml of APSA - 80 (1 capful) per 15 litres of post emergent berbicide solution
Spray normally on the crop.
For use as an Irrigation Aid
Mix 160ml of

They are “nonselective chemicals that have the power to kill every insect, the 'good ' and the 'bad, ' to still the song of birds and the leaping of fish in the streams, to coat the leaves with a deadly film, and to linger on in the soil.” Sadly enough, the destination of these insecticides are usually only a few annoying bugs among the thousands that exist (Carson par. 7).…

    Tools such as herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides reduce crop losses both before and after harvest, and increase crop yields. A plentiful supply of fresh produce is vital for a healthy population. Numerous scientific studies demonstrate the health benefits of regularly eating a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables and consumers are increasingly aware of these benefits. Agricultural productivity is key to ensuring that this demand can be met at an affordable price; and crop protection products help increase productivity and usable crop yields (Turk, 2014).…

    2012), and can have devastating effects on pollinators (Rundlöf et al. 2015). The majority of the active ingredients (80 – 98%) leach out of treated plants and seeds into the surrounding soil and water, where nearby wild plants take them up and become toxic (Goulson 2014; Botias et al 2016), potentially exposing bees at a large scale to the residues. These residues aren’t at high enough concentrations to kill the bees outright, however they are enough to affect the ability of these insects to survive.…
