PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - U.S. producers in search of unmatched broad spectrum control, higher yields and more convenience will find themselves with a new tactic in the fight against insects. FMC introduces Stallion (TM), an insecticide with two modes of action, providing quicker, more effective knockdown with longer residual than many other insecticides on the market. With 28 labeled insect pests including alfalfa weevil and potato leafhopper, protection provided by Stallion improves yield, quality and plant stand longevity.



"In two recent trials, alfalfa treated with Stallion showed increased yields and superior control against alfalfa weevil, leafhoppers and other insects," said Joe Reed, technical field manager, FMC Agriculture Products. "In addition to preventing losses by insects, using Stallion also reduced plant stress and increased stored energy in alfalfa, resulting in greater dollar per acre return."



Stallion can be applied alone or in tank mixes with fungicides, post herbicides and foliar fertilizers, offering flexibility in application. In addition to alfalfa, Stallion is an effective choice for corn, cotton, sorghum, soybeans, wheat and sunflowers.



"Stallion is a premix of two proven chemical classes with the right ratio and right rate that result in superior performance," said Adam Prestegord, product manager, FMC Agriculture Products.


"This convenient premix allows for convenient applications with no posting restrictions. Its ease of use and broad label on many early and late season crops improves inventory management."



Stallion insecticide is available in 2.5 gallon, 15 gallon and 110 gallon containers. For more information on Stallion and other FMC agricultural products, please visit your local retailer, local FMC Retail Market Manager or log on to http://www.FMCcrop.com.
