I have read that penetrator is a "delivery" agent, in that it opens the passage way and allows nute to flow in quicker and more efficently than using foliar feed alone or with a wetting agent. I think i read that in dutchmasters own website.
I have noticed when i use my other sprays(pest out,neem) with a wetting agent like Wet Betty or even Liquid Ivory, that the water will entirely envelope the surface of the leaf. When i use the Folitech and penetrator it just beads up and doesnt really cover the entire leaf as the wetting agent does.
Anyone else notice that penetrator used to be mixed at 20 ml per gallon and now it is mixed a 60 ml per gallon and they charge the same price for the same size. I think its crappy to water it down and charge the same.
Not real sure why you would want to add a delivery/wetting agent to a pest control mix. Neem and the like is for external pest control. Neem is naturally oily, so it would adhere to the leaf anyways. Don't think I'd want my neem oil entering the plants internal system via penetrator or wet betty use.
I have spoken to DM peeps here in Oz where it is made. The original penetrator, after long term use, did not meet their expectations. it was then reformulated to the current specs. The new specs are what the company is whistling about.
I am still using a bottle of the old folitech "veg" with penetrator already added, DM said they weren't happy with "it" either, but I'm using it just the same, with acceptable results.
Delivery/wetting, it's all the same thing with a different name description. Don't believe all the ad hype, try and decide.
I would personally recommend DM products to anyone who wants to try 'em.
Stay Safe. peace.
