About Argosy Adjuvants

Argosy® products are rain-fast, environmentally safe spreaders/stickers that make pesticides work better and virtually eliminate re-sprays. They encapsulate pesticides keeping them on the target even through rain events and irrigation. Since Argosy products are amphoteric, they can react with both acids and bases. When tank mixed, Argosy products enhance wetting and adhesion, as well as facilitate uniform foliar distribution of the active ingredient.

Benefits of Argosy Products


When sprayed on the leaf surface, Argosy RF enhances the adhesion of spray droplets to the leaf. Argosy RF also keeps the pesticide on the leaf surface even when irrigation or rainfall occurs, extending the life of chemical applications.


When combined with a pesticide, Argosy RF encourages uniform coverage of the product across the leaf allowing the active ingredient to be better absorbed by the plant.


The revolutionary elastic nature of Argosy RF allows the material to stretch as the plant leaf grows, keeping the application of the pesticide on the plant longer. This means fewer applications and longer efficacy.


Argosy RF is a retention agent. It binds with water, keeping moisture on a targeted substrate longer, and, accelerates recovery from drought conditions.
