Storage

Our products are tested between -10 °C and + 45°C and can be stored within this temperature-range. Occurring crystals due to cold storage will dissolve again at higher temperatures. We recommend a frost-free storage and a product-temperature above +5 °C at the time of use.

Miscibility

Lebosol®-Zitronensäure is compatible with the common plant protection products.

Lebosol®-Zitronensäure always first into spray tank.

Product active agent

Lebosol®-Zitronensäure lowers and buffers the pH level of spray water.

The pH level is a measure of the acidic or alkaline nature of an aqueous solution.

It is the negative decadic logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration. This means that the higher the concentration of free protons (H+ ions), the lower the pH level.

The pH level is indicated in a non-dimensional scale from pH 1 (acidic) to pH 14 (alkaline). Therefore, pH 7 describes a neutral solution. The optimum pH level of spray water for applications involving pesticides lies between 4.5 and 6.

Problems can occur in the process of alkaline hydrolysis if spray water has higher pH levels.

Recommendations

Crop Aim/Problem Recommendation Time
In all crops Prevention of alkaline hydrolysis Lebosol®-Zitronensäure (0.02% corresponds to 20 ml Lebosol®-Zitronensäure per 100 l spray water; Always add Lebosol®-Zitronensäure to the spray tank first.) When required
In all crops Cleaning of drip tubes Lebosol®-Zitronensäure (100 ml/l water, note longer exposure time; Always add Lebosol®-Zitronensäure to the spray tank first.) When required
In all crops Reduction of the pH value of the spray water Lebosol®-Zitronensäure (0.02% corresponds to 20 ml Lebosol®-Zitronensäure per 100 l spray water; Always add Lebosol®-Zitronensäure to the spray tank first.) When required
Ornamental plants Removal of chalky marks on leaves Lebosol®-Zitronensäure (0.5 % corresponds to 500 ml per 100 l spray water - allow to act for 30 min, then rise with water and moistening agent. Always add Lebosol®-Zitronensäure to the spray tank first.) When required
