Codacide Oil 25L

Codacide Oil is an oil-based adjuvant for increasing the effectiveness of spray applications of compatible plant protection products such as herbicides or insecticides.

The application rate of Codacide Oil is dependent on the rate of plant protection product that is used, but should be between 1 L/Ha and 2.5 L/Ha.

Codacide Oil can be used whenever foliar applications of plant protection products are made.

Codacide Oil is an emulsified vegetable oil which when pre-mixed with a plant protection product (PPP) replaces water as the primary carrier by encapsulating each molecule of the PPP. This creates a controlled emulsion which works to improve the efficiency of PPP application.

  • FOR USE AS A HORTICULTURAL ADJUVANT to improve the efficiency of plant protection product applications.
  • Codacide contains Canola Oil and Polyethoxylated Ester Emulsifier.
  • Codacide must be separately pre-mixed with each plant protection product until an emulsion is formed before adding to water in the spray tank.
  • Apply through tractor mounted boom sprayers and handheld knapsack sprayers.
  • Maintain constant agitation in the spray tank.
  • Application equipment should be calibrated before use.
  • Use plant protection products as part of an Integrated Pest Management Plan which includes management practices to encourage healthy plants and reduce plant stress.

  • How Codacide Works


    Codacide Oil Delivery System


    Codacide encapsulates PPP molecules which improves spraying efficiency by:

    Improving sticking
    The controlled emulsion that is created when a PPP is mixed with Codacide helps to improve adhesion to both plant and insect target surfaces.

    Increasing uptake
    Codacide increases the surface spread which means that a greater proportion of the PPP is in contact with the target. It also reduces evaporation so that the PPP is more easily available for uptake.

    Reducing drift
    By increasing the uniformity of spray droplets, Codacide reduces spraying inefficiency caused by drift of small droplets.

    Improving water resistance
    Rainfastness of the applied product is improved by the use of Codacide because it helps to adhere the PPP to the target surface within minutes of being applied.

    Reducing water and chemical use
    Because Codacide improves the accuracy and efficiency of spray applications it is possible to reduce water volumes and as less chemical is wasted, less chemical is needed.
