What is a Surfactant and an Adjuvant?
An adjuvant is an additive that increases herbicide, insecticide or fungicide activity. A surfactant is a type of adjuvant that enhances wetting and spreading of the product. Combined together, both a surfactant and an adjuvant keep the pesticide on the leaves and help it to penetrate the leaf surfaces for better results. When you use a pesticide without Cide-Kick II Surfactant Adjuvant or a similar adjuvant, you may see a significant reduction in the product's activity.
How Does Cide-Kick II Surfactant Adjuvant Work?
Cide-Kick II Surfactant Adjuvant nonionic spray adjuvant contains 100 percent D-limonene, isomers and select emulsifiers for improving herbicide uptake and penetrating the leaves and bark of herbaceous and woody plants. When it's mixed in the tank and sprayed with a compatible herbicide, Cide-Kick II keeps the product on the target area, reduces runoff and increases the effectiveness of the active ingredients.
Where to Use Cide-Kick II Surfactant Adjuvant
Use Cide-Kick II Surfactant Adjuvant with compatible pesticides according to the label. When it's used as recommended, you can apply it on weeds, brush and vines along roadsides and utility rights of way. It also helps an herbicide to eradicate weeds on forestry sites and aquatic surfaces with low- and high-volume ground applications. You can also combine Cide-Kick II with an herbicide and apply it as an aerial application.
Cide-Kick II Features and Benefits

Tips for Using Cide-Kick II
- Refer to the label for compatibility before adding Cide-Kick II to an herbicide.
- Add this adjuvant right before finishing off the tank with water.

Cide-Kick II Surfactant Adjuvant Increases Herbicide Activity
Even if an herbicide works well on its own, you can get as much as 50 percent more effectiveness with Cide-Kick II Surfactant Adjuvant nonionic adjuvant. It increases the product's activity on both terrestrial and aquatic weeds and penetrates tough bark on unwanted brush and vines. You can use it with most any compatible pesticide for greater weed management on residential, commercial and forestry sites. When you need to boost your herbicide, add Cide-Kick II to your tank.
