Non-Ionic Surfactant for Herbicides

Surfactant for Herbicides is a wetting agent with 80% non-ionic surfactant for increasing the penetration, coverage and overall effectiveness of almost any herbicide. Surfactant for herbicides can be used with almost all herbicide sprays including Trimec, Atrazine, Brush Killer and 2, 4-D Amine.  Please check the herbicide product label first to see if a surfactant is recommended.  Surfactants reduce the surface tension of water to produce more uniform coverage and penetration of herbicides and weed killers.


Active Ingredient: Alkyl aryl polyoxyethylene glycol and other ethoxylated derivatives (surfactant) 80%
Application: HERBICIDES such as 2,4-D Amine, Atrazine, Trimec, Brush Killer, Image, MSMA and others: 1-2 teaspoons per gallon of water, or 1 pint per 100 gallons.

GLYPHOSATE HERBICIDES (that do not contain a surfactant): 1 Tablespoon per gallon or 2 quarts per 100 gallons of spray.

INSECTICIDES, FUNGICIDES, MITICIDES and NUTRITIONALS: 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of spray or 8 ounces per 100 gallons of spray.
Manufactured By: Southern Ag (UPC: 051538122023)

    5 of 5 Stars  Really good stuff
    By Dan on August 24, 2011

    I have for years been wrestling with various annual and perennial weeds in the lawns that I manage. Specifically, various different types of crab grasses have proliferated in the late summer even after pre-emergent and several OTC post-emergent herbicide treatments. This summer with everything looking truly horrid, I used this surfactant along with Drive XLR8 to absolutely knock the crap out of my late season crab grass problems. This particular surfactant has also proved to be quite handy for increasing the apparent broadleaf weed killing effectiveness of other OTC and commercial grade herbicides.

    5 of 5 Stars  Excellent Value!
    By Gmc on June 1, 2012

    Just what I needed to add to the weed killer to give it that extra boost for killing the weeds. This is an excellent value for the money. I would recommend everyone to use this product with sedge and weed killers.

    5 of 5 Stars  Surfactant
    By Paul on September 14, 2012

    I added this stuff to EndRun and Drive XLR8 and you could see the mixture clinging to the leaves. The crab grass is gone and most other weeds are either dead or looking really bad. I used Trimec in the past and it did absolutely nothing, I tried it again with the surfactant and it actually worked somewhat. Bottom line, the surfactant really helps the herbicides stick to the foliage so it can do its job.

    5 of 5 Stars  It's a surfectant--
    By Rhonda on October 27, 2012

    Surfactants are available everywhere so why did I get mine on the Web? One reason: I didn't have to wade through a shelf of surfactants reading labels -- the information about the type and amount in container is up front and plain to read. Two reasons: DoMyOwn's price is as good or better as any I could get around here, and the Fusilade herbicide I needed surfactant for was coming from DMOPC anyway. I'll have no problem using up the extra. Surfectants are basically harmless to plants and a bit in pest-spraying water makes it more effective. Plain water is a good home control (at least in low-humidity California conditions) for mites, aphids, and whitefly, if you keep at it.

    5 of 5 Stars  Prosedge for Nutgrass Infestation
    By Nick on September 1, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    I purchases two small packets of Prosedge made by Nufarm Americas, Inc. I tried other readily available herbicides but they either did not work or killed my fine lawn fescue grass. The Prosedge packet calls for two teaspoons of a non-ionic surfactant to help Prosedge work properly. After two weeks the nutgrass is brown and dying away leaving the fescue to regrow.

  • 5 of 5 Stars  Great product!
    By Scott on August 7, 2014

    I purchased this surfactant because it was recommended for use the Accliam Herbicide. It worked so well with Accliam that I now mix it in with my other weed killers (Roundup, Weed-B-Gone). I can treat my lawn much faster now while using less weed killer in the process.

  • 5 of 5 Stars  A must have for all of your foliage based sprays!
    By John on July 21, 2014

    I was used to using coco wet for all of my foliage feeding and sprays and was pretty skeptical about using something else. I must say I'm glad I switched. First of all, the value (get the gallon, not 16oz.)I was going thru bottle after bottle of my old stuff and it got pretty expensive. Especially if you have a ton of plants like me. You only have to use a tiny bit per gallon (a little goes a long way) and I'm pretty sure this will last me for a long while. As far as performance, this product has increased the productivity of the fertilizers and fungicides I use do to the product allowing the spray to "stick" to the foliage. Overall I'm very pleased with this product. I will say, pay attention to the directions on some liquid fertilizers and fungicide sprays when using this. Sometimes there is an order as to what to put in the sprayer first. ie, fungicide,surfactant then water. If not done in the proper order, some sprays are rendered ineffective.

    5 of 5 Stars  Nut Sedge problem
    By Tom on June 24, 2014

    My issue was not nut sedge infecting my bermuda lawn. It was bermuda infecting my nut sedge lawn!!! I had to wait a few days to allow for frequent showers. I used a pump sprayer and the nut sedge,surfactant spray. It took a few days to begin seeing the effect. I mowed the lawn four days after spraying, After the mowing the nur sedge did not reappear. I can only hope the herbicide kills the roots and I won't have the same issue next year. If so, I will surely use the same produce and hopefully achieve the same great results. Goog product.

    By Frank. on September 19, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    As from my last review, this is way better than soap and it really makes any herbicide work better. Just don't buy the small bottle!! I also looked into using Insecticidal Soap to see if it was cheaper as some local farmers recommended to me. No dice, this is cheaper. Used properly ( measure it so you don't waste it ) a gallon lasts on my 1+ acre grounds with lots of beds for more than a year.

    5 of 5 Stars  Great stuff
    August 28, 2013
    Verified Purchase

    Whatever you do don't buy the pint size container of this surfactant. You can get 8 times as much for about double the price of a pint. I bought the pint once but never again. I had a bad infestation of crabgrass and got a herbicide to get rid of it. I never used a surfactant with my herbicides before but this time I did. Crabgrass was killed in less than 4 days. Now I just have to wait for the Bermuda to fill back in. I see now surfactants are recommended for post emergent herbicides and pest control products so I am going to put this #%*{ on everything. At the gallon price you can't go wrong and it lasts for 3-5 years on the shelf.

October 13, 2011Eliberto from Mission, Tx asked:

QCan this product be used by itself, so to improve the usage of water?
I am trying to know if by using it on lawns will I be using less water, since the water will not stay on the hairy part of the grass leaf.

ASurfactant is used to help the water + plant product coat the whole leaf of plant and penetrate for better product performance. We have never heard of any one using the surfactant with water alone and we are not sure what benefit you would get from doing so. We recommend you speak with a professional gardener to see what their thoughts are on the subject or you can call the manufacturer of Non-Ionic Surfactant - Southern Ag 941-722-3285 to get their recommendations.
