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.

Bonne 4X1 Gal

Active Ingredient: A proprietary blend of aliphatic and aromatic, saturated and unsatruated, linear, cyclic, and polycyclic hydrocarbons, alcohols, esters and acids

MSDSSPECMore Info

Bonne 4X1 Gal

Bonne is a superior sticking-extending agent designed to control the life of pesticides. It is compatible in the spray tank with all commercially used pesticide products and soluble fertilizers. Bonne forms a sticky, elastic film which encapsulates and tenaciously holds the pesticide on the crop foliage. This protective film greatly reduces the effects of environmentally degrading factors, which reduce the effectiveness of pesticide sprays. Boone will not foam, freeze or clog nozzles. It has been proven effective when applied by any aircraft or ground sprayer. It improves the initial pesticide deposit and allows excellent redistribution of aircraft and concentrate sprayer deposits, to give complete coverage. Bonne prevents rainfall and wind erosion of pesticides from the leaf surfaces. It shields the pesticide spray residue from heat and ultra-violet radiation which often causes pesticide degradation. Pesticide volatilization is minimized by the protective film. Loss of pesticide deposit by the abrasive activity of leaves rubbing together is also prevented.

Buctril 4Ec

Active Ingredient: BROMOXYNIL

MSDSSPECMore Info

Buctril 4Ec

Buctril is formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate of octanoic acid ester of bromoxynil containing the equivalent of 2 pounds of bromoxynil per gallon. Buctril is a selective postemergence herbicide for control of important broadleaf weeds infesting corn (field and pop), sorghum (grain and forage), wheat, barley, oats, rye, triticale, alfalfa (seedling), flax, onions (dry bulb), garlic, mint (established peppermint and spearmin), Conservation Reserve Program areas, grasses grown for seed or sod production, non-residential turfgrass, and non-cropland and industrial sites. Optimum weed control is obtained when Buctril is applied to actively growing weed seedlings. Buctril is primarily a contact herbicide; therefore thorough coverage of the weed seedlings is essential for optimum control. Buctril has little residual activity.
