Monterey-Nature's Own Spray Helper
Monterey's spreader-sticker is derived from natural cottonseed oil and is a non-ionic surface acting wetting agent which will increase the efficiency of various insecticides, weed killers (herbicides), and fungicides that control fungal diseases.
Some foliage is considered “easy to wet” because it has no coating that might repel the spray. Other plants have a waxy cover on the foliage making it a “hard to wet” plant. You simply use a bit more spreader-sticker for the hard to wet plants.
(Jeff – get a list of plants in the two categories)
On easy to wet plants use ½ teaspoon for each gallon mixed spray solution (pesticide). For hard to wet plants use 1 full teaspoon for each gallon of mixed spray solution.
