The best penetrant for use with systemic pesticides and nutrients and an excellent spreader/wetter for foliar-applied contact pesticides

Enhance the wetting, spreading and penetration properties and will extend the coverage of the spray combinations into hard to reach areas – especially good on water repellent plant surfaces and crops with dense foliage.
Improves knockdown action of pesticides by improving contact with waxy layers of insects and external hydrophobic structures of fungi.
Does not reduce photosynthesis or transpiration often associated with the application of mineral and traditional vegetable oils.

WETCIT adjuvant, incorporating two proprietary technologies, is an excellent spreader/wetter for foliar-applied contact pesticides and also the best penetrant for use with systemic pesticides and nutrients. Highly versatile, growers can tailor the action of WETCIT by using it at a lower rate for contact pesticide applications or at higher labeled rates for its penetrating action for use with systemic applications.

The TransPhloem™ technology in WETCIT has demonstrated in University of Illinois radioisotope studies with glyphosate to translocate a higher concentration of a systemic pesticide, more rapidly, within a plant other types of adjuvants such as methylated seed oils, crop oil concentrates or non-ionic surfactants. This translates into a quicker kill on weeds and faster crop protection from insecticide and fungicide treatments.

WETCIT is also formulated using OROWET® technology. This patented process uses a blend of natural plant derived extracts and bio-degradable wetting agents to deliver highly effective penetrating properties. The superior spreading/wetting/penetration of WETCIT uniformly distributes the pesticide on the leaf surface, avoiding the potential for run-off often seen with silicone-based spreaders. It also improves pesticide performance by delivering it into hard-to-reach areas, like whorls, where pests and disease can hide from less effective adjuvant coverage.

  • Reducing runoff because its excellent wetting properties prevents beading up of spray droplets.
  • Increasing coverage on the leaf surface for better control with contact pesticides.
  • OROWET technology penetrating the leaf cuticle quickly and moving systemic fungicides into the plant to reduce loss from evaporation or rainfall.
  • TransPhloem technology moving systemic fungicides into the plant more rapidly and in higher concentrations for more effective translocation within the plant.
  • Eliminating neighbors’ complaints by masking any “chemical smell” of pesticides with a pleasant orange scent.

TransPhloemTM technology, incorporated in all Oro Agri foliar-applied adjuvants including WETCIT®, VINTRE®, OROCIT® and OROBOOST®, quickens the translocation of systemic herbicides throughout the plant leading to a faster kill off. In the pictures above, an application of an Oro Agri adjuvant containing TransPhloemTM technology combined with glyphosate resulted in a quicker kill of the lambsquarter weed.

Tom Pearson, a Professional Crop Advisor with California ag chemical dealer Gar Tootelian relates his success in using WETCIT adjuvant to help control aphids and sooty mold in cotton. He also talks about how using WETCIT resulted in clean, non-sticky cotton and why that is important for defoliation and ginning.


Loren Kaeb, from Blue Sky Farm, talks about the benefits of using WETCIT for herbicide control in food grade soybeans.


A recent Oro Agri-commissioned study conducted by the University of Illinois has shown the TransPhloemTM technology contained in VINTRE offers producers improved translocation of herbicides to kill weeds faster and improve field conditions for all commercial crops.

VINTRE provides superior results compared to other adjuvant types and various crop oils, resulting in faster weed kill to improve the potential for higher yields.

CDPA Certified

The CPDA voluntary Adjuvant Certification Program is the first of its kind. Since its launch in 2001, it has quickly gained industry recognition as an innovative tool for encouraging product stewardship in the manufacture of agricultural adjuvants. Prior to this program, end users had little, if any, scientifically accepted standards by which they could effectively judge the quality of a tank-mix adjuvant. Members of the CPDA Adjuvants and Inerts Committee developed the program to bring a level of consistency in product performance for adjuvants used with agricultural pesticide formulations. Products certified under the program must meet 17 separate benchmarks that are based on technologically and scientifically derived definitions and standards adopted by the American Society for Testing and Materials, now known as ASTM International, and certain requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Agricultural spray adjuvants are not subject to federal regulation by the EPA.

When users purchase a CPDA-certified adjuvant product, they have the assurance that the product meets the functionality claims indicated on the label according to a specified, uniform set of standards, and that ingredients used in the product meet EPA regulations for approved ingredients for use in pesticide tank mixes. The ASTM International standards E 1519-06ae1 and E 609-05 (available for purchase on the ASTM website) provide the structure for ensuring an adjuvant product is of high quality and reliability. Pesticide registrants and users will have the assurance that the product will meet its performance claims and that all product labeling guidelines have been followed.

*Always read and follow the product labels for more complete information and application directions. Check your state product registration status before using any product.
