The most advanced adjuvant technology for trees and vines

Scientifically advanced adjuvant designed for improving the efficacy of inputs used on trees and vines.

VINTRE® has been shown to provide superior spreading, wetting and penetration compared to alternative surfactants such as crop oil concentrates (COC), methylated seed oils (MSO), high surfactant methylated seed oils (HSMOC), silicone surfactants (SS) and non-ionic surfactants (NIS).

VINTRE has been extensively field tested and is an excellent spreader, allowing pesticides to reach deep within cracks and crevices when mixed at low rates and, when mixed at higher rates, provides foliar penetration of inputs to a tree’s or plant’s phloem to distribute materials throughout the tree or plant and its roots.


Quicken the Translocation of Systemic Herbicides throughout Weeds

A recent Oro Agri-commissioned study conducted by the University of Illinois has shown the TransPhloemTM technology contained in VINTRE offers producers improved translocation of herbicides to kill weeds faster and improve field conditions for all commercial crops.

VINTRE provides superior results compared to other adjuvant types and various crop oils, resulting in faster weed kill to improve the potential for higher yields.

Benefits of VINTRE plus herbicides include:

  • TransPhloemTM technology delivers MORE post-emergent, systemic herbicide to the weeds’ roots FASTER than other types of adjuvants
  • Superior spreading, wetting, and penetrating properties compared to other adjuvants
  • Enhanced rainfastness due to fast cuticle penetration
  • Ideal for herbicide resistance management

Lambsquarters treated with Roundup PowerMAX®
TransPhloemTM technology, incorporated in all Oro Agri foliar-applied adjuvants including WETCIT®, VINTRE®, OROCIT® and OROBOOST®, quickens the translocation of systemic herbicides throughout the plant leading to a faster kill off. In the pictures above, an application of an Oro Agri adjuvant containing TransPhloemTM technology combined with glyphosate resulted in a quicker kill of the lambsquarter weed.

This University of Illinois phosphorescent image shows translocation from a single leaf covered with herbicide and an Oro Agri foliar-applied adjuvant with TransPhloemTM technology, spreading throughout lambsquarter and delivering material to roots within 12 hours. TransPhloemTM technology is incorporated in all Oro Agri foliar-applied adjuvants: WETCIT, VINTRE, OROCIT and OROBOOST



Insecticide, Fungicide & Miticide

Superior spreading, wetting and penetration for superior results.

VINTRE, now with TransPhloemTM technology, provides the ideal method for improving the efficacy of applications. Field tests have shown VINTRE provides better coverage and penetration to deliver more active ingredients into trees and vines and provide a more complete barrier to infestation. Unlike oil-based adjuvants, VINTRE does not leave sticky residues and provides quicker, more complete spreading in cracks and crevices and penetration through leaf surfaces.

Benefits of VINTRE plus insecticides / fungicides / miticides include:

  • Penetrates waxy cuticles to move systemic pesticides into the plant quickly
  • Is an excellent spreader, at low rates, for contact pesticides
  • Knocks down mite webbing and leaves no sticky residue to attract dust and cause mite flare-ups
  • Does not decrease stomatal conductance, unlike crop oil sprays that reduce transpiration and increase plant stress

Foliar Nutrition

Better spreading and better absorption for better results.

VINTRE with TransPhloemTM technology maximizes foliar fertilization by increasing absorption of nutrients through superior deposition and penetration through leaf surfaces. TransPhloemTM technology allows for faster and more complete nutrient movement into and throughout plants than other adjuvants and surfactants. Better absorption with VINTRE’s proprietary formulation can increase quality and the potential for higher yields.

Benefits of VINTRE use with foliar applied nutrients include:

  • Increased nutrient uptake into the plant
  • Ensures complete coverage for better nutrient distribution
  • Does not decrease stomatal conductance, unlike crop oil sprays that reduce transpiration and increase plant stress

VINTRE shows dramatic improvement of deposition on leaves



CDPA Certified

The CPDA voluntary Adjuvant Certification Program is the first of its kind. Since its launch in 2001, it has quickly gained industry recognition as an innovative tool for encouraging product stewardship in the manufacture of agricultural adjuvants. Prior to this program, end users had little, if any, scientifically accepted standards by which they could effectively judge the quality of a tank-mix adjuvant. Members of the CPDA Adjuvants and Inerts Committee developed the program to bring a level of consistency in product performance for adjuvants used with agricultural pesticide formulations. Products certified under the program must meet 17 separate benchmarks that are based on technologically and scientifically derived definitions and standards adopted by the American Society for Testing and Materials, now known as ASTM International, and certain requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Agricultural spray adjuvants are not subject to federal regulation by the EPA.

When users purchase a CPDA-certified adjuvant product, they have the assurance that the product meets the functionality claims indicated on the label according to a specified, uniform set of standards, and that ingredients used in the product meet EPA regulations for approved ingredients for use in pesticide tank mixes. The ASTM International standards E 1519-06ae1 and E 609-05 (available for purchase on the ASTM website) provide the structure for ensuring an adjuvant product is of high quality and reliability. Pesticide registrants and users will have the assurance that the product will meet its performance claims and that all product labeling guidelines have been followed.
