Capture 3RIVE 3D in-furrow corn insecticide from FMC received EPA registration for use with the new 3RIVE 3D ultra-low volume, in-furrow delivery system. The 3RIVE 3D system allows growers to treat up to 500 acres in one fill, using less than one-tenth the liquid carrier volume typically required to treat the same acreage.
Capture 3RIVE 3D insecticide, a restricted use pesticide, provides protection from corn rootworms as well as the seed and seedling insect complex including: wireworms, grubs, seedcorn maggots and cutworms. Capture 3RIVE 3D insecticide is also an excellent addition to an integrated strategy for management of Bt resistant corn rootworm.
Capture 3RIVE 3D insecticide is the first crop protection product for use with the new delivery system. FMC is working on future opportunities for combining multiple active ingredients including insecticides, fungicides and biostimulants.
The patent-pending 3RIVE 3D application system precisely combines the specially formulated crop protection product with an ultra-low volume of water and expands the mixture up to 50 times into a three-dimensional foam, providing a continuous zone of protection for the seed. Just 40 ounces of solution is applied per acre. In the case of Capture 3RIVE 3D, 8 ounces of formulated insecticide is combined with 32 ounces of water per acre for the standard corn rootworm rate.
