AgricultureOverview

Howard has deep roots in agriculture. We started our business in 1932, providing fertilizers to Florida citrus growers. From there, we branched out to serve vegetable growers, and we continued to develop new products to meet the industry's latest needs and demands. In 2002, we began offering chemicals to complement our fertilizer products, and in 2012 we opened a state-of-the-art production facility in Lake Placid, Florida.

Today, we are a leading provider of agricultural products, with distribution centers located to deliver product with the industry's fastest turnaround time. Our sales force are also experts in all areas of agricultural production, and are ready to assist you in every way possible. In this business, experience makes the difference — and that's the difference Howard can make to your operations.

Polyworx™ is the newest technology in slow release polymer coated fertilizer. Polyworx is a component product designed to allow you to precisely target the release of nutrients to the exact time when your crops, trees and plants require it.

Pinene Ii 4X1.25 Gal

Active Ingredient: Polymeric terpenes

MSDSSPECMore Info

Pinene Ii 4X1.25 Gal

Pinene II is an Extender Sticker Spreader designed to extend the life of pesticides. It may be used with all pesticide products and soluble fertilizers. Pinene II forms a durable film that holds a pesticide on the crop foliage. This shield greatly reduces the effects of environmental factors, such as rain, which may decrease the effectiveness of pesticides. Pinene II will not foam, freeze or clog nozzles. It may be applied by aerial, ground or concentrate sprayer. It enhances the initial pesticide application to give complete coverage. Pinene II prevents the removal of the pesticides from the leaf surface by rainfall and wind. It screens the pesticide spray residue from ultraviolet rays which often cause pesticide degradation. Pesticide volatilization is minimized by the protective shield. Under most conditions, apply sprays containing Pinene II and allow at least one hour of daylight before an anticipated rain.
