Casa Bugre | Agrivalle launched HiperFixx, a new multifunctional neutral adjuvant in the Brazilian market.
According to the company, HiperFixx was developed to increase leaf coverage without changing application volume, resulting in greater absorption and efficiency.
The product’s main advantage, according to Casa Bugre | Agrivalle, is the fact that it is a balanced combination of five raw materials in various proportions, which ensures better application performance and enhances the effects of applied products.
“The adjuvant, which has a complete formulation, increases the adhesion of applied compounds and standardizes droplet size, facilitating wetting and spreading, improving emulsification, allowing the applied product to be better distributed, and reducing losses due to evaporation, runoff and wind displacement,” explained the company.
HiperFixx also reduces foam caused by the agitation of active ingredients in spray tanks, making operational use easier for producers. It also makes active principles more effective due to its translaminar action, or the ability of an applied solution to penetrate fruits or leaves, creating an interface between the two ends. This maintains cuticle hydration, epidermis wetness and the spacing of waxy plates.
According to a report by BIS Research, the agricultural adjuvant market is expected to record an overall volume of 312,800 tons and total value of US$3.594 billion by 2021. “Producers are constantly searching for cost and resource optimization to achieve better results. Therefore, we created HiperFixx, which can improve the quality and productivity of production systems. We are always looking to launch innovations that will advance agriculture and benefit producers,” said Matheus Angeli Castanheira, Casa Bugre | Agrivalle Marketing Coordinator.
