Bonza

A specially formulated blend of paraffinic oil, fatty acid penetrants and surfactant to enhance wetting, spreading and uptake of systemic herbicides; with other herbicides and agricultural chemicals to improve wetting and spreading, and as an aid for modifying spray droplet quality and to preserve droplet survival.

  • Improves deposition, wetting, spreading and uptake
  • Aids in the management of spray droplet quality and survival
  • Potential to increase droplet VMD and reduce fine droplets

 

Active Ingredient:  450g/L Paraffinic oil

 

Formulation:            Oil

 

What is Bonza?

Bonza is a premium oil adjuvant especially designed to enhance the penetration of herbicides into weed tissue. A mixture of highly refined mineral oils in conjunction with a carefully balanced, synergistic adjuvant system allows herbicides to maximise their penetration through waxy plant cuticles.

 

Directions for use:

To improve deposition, wetting, spreading and uptake of certain herbicides, use
500ml – 1L per 100 litres water, as per the relevant product label. To aid in the management of spray droplet quality and spray droplet survival, use 500ml – 1 litre per 100 litres water. The addition of Bonza to the spray tank has the potential to increase the droplet VMD and reduce the percentage of fine droplets. The addition of Bonza also has the potential to increase survival of the spray droplets by reducing evaporation.

 

Mixing:

Follow the directions on the companion agricultural chemical label. Partially fill the spray tank and add the required amount of the agricultural chemical (or chemicals in the correct order) whilst agitating the tank contents. Continue filling the tank to the required volume and add the recommended rate of Bonza last. Agitate thoroughly during spraying and after a stoppage.

 

Crops and situations:

Tank Mixture Product Crop Bonza rate/100L of water Comments
Valdo 800WG Pasture (new and established) 500ml Graze well before application when applying with Baton or Thistrol Plus.
  Clover seed crops 500ml  
  Established lucerne 500ml Do not add Bonza when applying with triazine herbicides.
  Maize 500ml  
  New and established chicory 500ml  
Latro WG Maize 500ml Do not add Bonza to mixes of Latro WG with Kamba 500 or Emblem Flo as it will increase the risk of crop injury, although the use of dropper nozzles may reduce damage.
Prestige Forage Brassicas 500ml  
Crest 520 Radiata Pine 500ml Do not add Bonza to mixes of Crest 520 with either Archer or Nu-Terb 900WDG.
  Lucerne, clover  500ml  
   Pipfruit, citrus 500ml  
   Asparagus  500ml  
   Onions  500ml  
 SeQuence  All crops  1L (max 2L/Ha)  Always apply SeQuence with Bonza unless otherwise stated.
  Forage brassica tank mix application  500ml (max 2L/Ha) If applying SeQuence and Bonza in a tank mix with broadleaf herbicides or insecticides decrease the rate of Bonza and apply during cool conditions in the morning or evening.
  Chicory tank mix application 500ml (max 2L/Ha) If applying SeQuence and Bonza in a tank mix with Valdo 800WG decrease the rate of Bonza to reduce the risk of crop injury.
