New standard rainfastness

In 2012 rainfastness was tested between just 2 and 10 mins with Silsoe Spray Applications Unit (SSAU). Leafshield competency was demonstrated with 10-15 times more active azole and SDHI dose being retained in the Aviator235Xpro formulation compared to its competitor, Adexar (epoxiconazole + fluxapyroxad) between 2 and 10 minutes before simulated rain.

This means you can capitalise on tight spray windows with Aviator235Xpro knowing your investment is protected even if it rains immediately after spraying.
