Wilbur-Ellis Launches Drift Reduction Product in California

Wilbur-Ellis Co., a recognized leader in precision agriculture technology and the distribution and marketing of crop protection, seed and nutritional products, announced today the launch of DILIGENCE-EA in the state of California. DILIGENCE-EA is a state-of-the-art deposition and drift-reduction product powered by Wilbur-Ellis’ patented ACCUSTRIKE technology. Now, California growers can take advantage of this powerful product, effectively and significantly reducing ground spray drift and providing increased deposition, especially on vegetables.


DILIGENCE-EA’s increased deposition helps growers’ active ingredients reach plant targets, effectively and efficiently. Ultimately, this results in getting more out of agricultural investments with bigger and better results from chosen tank mix products.

Additionally, DILIGENCE-EA’s ACCUSTRIKE technology gives growers a more uniform spray pattern, further increasing efficacy and keeping neighboring crops safe and untouched. Its non-oil, water-based formulation allows for improved compatibility, and a low-use rate with uniform droplet size gives growers the most out of their applications.

“With this new ACCUSTRIKE technology, we have successfully minimized drift-related fines while spraying and maximized the spray deposits of the material onto the leaf tissue,” said Wilbur-Ellis Branded Adjuvant Portfolio Manager Terry Abbott.

Since DILIGENCE-EA is a non-oil, water-based adjuvant, this means extra steps have been taken during product development to ensure crop safety, particularly in more sensitive crops.
