Pesticides don't always cover the target area well enough on their own. In fact, many professionals add Basal Oil Surfactant in the tank to help spread the product and improve its effectiveness. Even if they do cover the area, they may not flow very easily from the applicator to the target. Alligare Basal Oil is a highly emulsified diluent that improves the flow of the product onto the intended surface. Alligare Basal Oil combines well in tank mixtures with other Alligare products such as Triclopyr 4 EC and Rotary 2 SL.

How Alligare Basal Oil Works

Alligare Basal Oil is a low-viscosity, nonaromatic diluent that contains paraffin oil and select coupling agents and surface-active compounds. It's a type of surfactant that not only dilutes thicker products but also spreads them more easily over the target surfaces. It doesn't contain carcinogenics or additives that affect the product's active ingredients. Alligare Basal Oil has a specialized formula for use on basal bark and cut surfaces in brush control applications.

Where to Use Alligare Basal Oil

Use Alligare Basal Oil with compatible herbicides that target unwanted brush on industrial and noncrop sites. Refer to the label for specific usage instructions and compatible herbicides, including target areas for use. When it's used as recommended, Alligare Basal Oil provides thorough coverage on brush in utility sites, rights of way and municipal areas. Although it doesn't actively kill the brush, it helps the herbicide work more effectively during and after the application.
