Water Quality / PH Adjuster:
Glycel products are formulated to be mixed with water to facilitate application. Often, that water (whether it comes from a well or rural water association) contains large amounts of dissolved salts. Hardness is a measure of how much salt water contains. The harder the water, the higher the salt concentration. These dissolved salts in hard water may reduce Glycel’s effectiveness, particularly calcium and magnesium salts. These salts have a positive charge and may associate with the negatively charged Glycel molecule, displacing the isopropylamine or other salt used in the formulated product. Plants absorb less Glycel bound with calcium or magnesium salts than the formulated salt of Glycel, thus reducing Glycel activity. Although specific recommendations vary, most Glycel labels recommend adding ammonium sulfate. The role of ammonium sulfate is considerably different than the function of nonionic surfactants. Surfactants are active primarily on the leaf surface and improve herbicide absorption into plants. Ammonium sulfate, on the other hand, is active primarily in the spray tank where it prevents the antagonistic salts from interacting with Glycel. Ammonium sulfate should always be added to the tank prior to Glycel to prevent the formation of inactive complexes between Glycel and antagonistic cations.
