The nature and mode of action of surfactants is reviewed. Surfactants are useful additives for formulated herbicides because they contribute to wetting, spreading, emulsification, and solubilization of the herbicide. The use of extra surfactant to increase herbicidal activity is a desirable practice. The factors in selecting a suitable agent are discussed in terms of surfactant properties.
