Newest Crop Protection Products for 2013
Consensus Seed Treatment with salicylic acid—newly registered as a seed treatment—and two other plant growth regulators is to be used by commercial/dealer applicators on soybean, wheat, cotton and rice seed. Consensus is being promoted as a good companion seed treatment with other seed treatment products such as rhozobia inoculants. “Consensus is formulated for the activation of oligosaccharides, vitamins and natural plant growth hormones resulting in stronger, healthier and more uniform seedlings.”
Acceleron Seed Treatment with Acceleron DX-612 (fluxapyroxad) is new to the company’s seed treatment line for 2013 to use on soybean and cotton seed. The newest seed treatment in the Acceleron line provides multiple modes of action, including the new generation fungicide, for “unprecedented defense against rhizoctonia and fusarium diseases.”
MANA CROP PROTECTION
Bumper ES Fungicide contains propiconazole and is labeled for corn and soybean use. It controls corn diseases of leaf blights, rusts, gray leaf spot and eye spot. In soybeans it controls brown spot, frogeye leaf spot, aerial web blight, Asian soybean rust and anthracnose.
Paradigm Insecticide with lambda-cyhalothrin can be used in soybean, corn, rice and sorghum crops. It provides broad spectrum control of “primary and secondary insects” with a VC formulation that reduces odor and improves handling because of “less skin irritation than EC formulations” and qualifies for a caution rather than warning signal word.
Rumble Herbicide has fomesafen to be used in soybean production preemergence and postemegence with residual to control both glyphosate- and ALS-resistant weeds such as waterhemp, Palmer amaranth and common ragweed.
Skyraider Insecticide/Miticide has the combination of bifenthrin and imidacloprid for use in soybeans. It has the “correct formulated ratio” of the two active ingredients for longer residual and quicker knockdown of a broad list of pests in multiple uses.
Torment Herbicide with fomesafen and imazethapry gives pre- and post-emergence control of 65 species of grass and broadleaf weeds in soybeans, including those resistant to glyphosate and HPPD/triazine inhibitors.
Vise Herbicide has fomesafen but also has metolachlor for use in soybeans for pre-emergence residual grass and broadleaf weed control, again including those resistant to glyphosate and ALS herbicides.
Vulcan Insecticide for corn and soybean use has a reduced-odor chlorpyrifos active ingredient formulation that allows the label signal word to be caution. It provides quick knockdown and residual control when used in specific situations pre-pant, at-plant, pre-emergence or postemergence.
