The quality and physical properties of water, and in particular, spray water, have a direct influence on pesticide performance. pH and dissolved salts combined to increase the alkalinity of spray water and adversely influences the absorption of chemicals. In some cases, a direct reaction occurs causing a complete breakdown, known as alkaline hydrolysis. When the pH of water exceeds 7, the concentration of hydroxyl ions (OH) becomes high enough to break down bonds within the chemical structure. This breakdown results in inhibiting or nullifying the performance of the pesticide. These include a wide range of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and growth regulators.
