Principle #3 - Reduced Chemical Rates
FARM FOR PROFIT vegetable oil is a special product
consisting of 93% once refined soybean oil and
7% or our quality emulsifier. By blending the
herbicides and insecticides with the vegetable
oil, FARM FOR PROFIT clients are able to reduce
their chemical rates by 25% to 80% ((depending
on selected chemicals) while at the same time
getting the same or better kill results and putting
a stop to over application and the continuing
accumulation of toxic chemicals in the soil.
The soybean oil encapsulates the chemicals
and protects them from oxygen and sunlight degradation
while simultaneously improving the uniformity of the
spray droplet size for better control reduced drift,
increased coverage on leaf surfaces, and reduced wash
The use of vegetable or soybean oil instead
of the traditional petroleum based crop oil will dramatically
increase the availability of nutrients for crop production,
and adequately control weeds and grasses. FARM FOR PROFIT
program representatives advise farmers on how best to
cut chemical rates dependent upon environmental conditions,
types of weeds and grasses, and soil types and conditions.
RULE OF THUMB:
Use 1 quart of FARM FOR PROFIT vegetable oil if gincorporatedh
or gpre-emergingh chemicals; and 1 pint of FARM FOR
PROFIT vegetable oil if gpost emergingh chemicals.
Always use slightly more FARM FOR
PROFIT vegetable oil than the total liquid chemical
to ensure encapsulation.
|FARM FOR PROFIT recommends waiting to see
which problem needs are developing before spraying.
By blending pesticides with SSTEP 3 vegetable Oil,
the application rate can most commonly be decreased
||Vegetable Oil used along with herbicides achieves
weed-free fields, while saving the farmer money
and sustaining the soil.
The FARM FOR PROFIT program
consists of four major principles:
||Principle #1 - Proper soil
management (in any type of soil)
||Principle #2 - Balanced Nutrition in
the fields (for any crop)
||Principle #3 - Reduced chemical rates
with as good or better production results.
||Principle #4 - Training and Education
for farmers to maximize their opportunity for
