A field study conducted over a period of 2 years in forest plantations in Northern Ontario demonstrated that addition of several adjuvants to commercial formulation of VisionĀ® and Accord-CR (glyphosate) at low-volume rates (30 l/ha) did not improve efficacy significantly. It is suggested that no benefits would be gained from addition of adjuvants such as Ethokem and TritonĀ®-XR to aerial application of Vision under forestry situations where low-volume rates of Vision are employed.
