Crop Protection 2008

Partnerships

AMVAC Chemical Corp. and DuPont Crop Protection entered an agreement last January to offer Amvac’s new corn herbicide, Impact 2.8SC (topramezone), in the TruChoice Opportunity Program. This program is a financing program for growers purchasing DuPont-approved crop protection products and Pioneer brand seed products. Introduced in 2006, Impact offers excellent crop safety on all types of corn, including seed corn, sweet corn, and popcorn.

In another agreement, Monterey AG Resources is distributing Marrone Organic Innovations, Inc.’s organic herbicide, GreenMatch O, in the Western U.S. GreenMatch is a postemergence, non-selective burndown herbicide containing d-limonene (citrus oil extract) and other plant extracts and surfactants. GreenMatch O is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute.

Bayer CropScience

Laudis (tembotrione), a post-emergence herbicide, is labeled for sweet corn and popcorn. This product is for broad-spectrum grass and broadleaf weed control and has an added benefit of residual control to crop canopy with any postemergent herbicide program. 

Falcon Lab LLC

Falcon Lab LLC’s Racer (ammonium nonanoate) was approved by EPA for organic production. This herbicide is based on naturally occurring substances, such as vegetable oil. The product is water-soluble and can be sold in liquid or dry form.

MANA CROP PROTECTION

Parazone, a burndown herbicide that can be used as a defoliant and desiccant, can be applied on more than 100 crops, including vegetables.

Valent U.S.A. Corp.

Select Max herbicide with Inside Technology (clethodium) from Valent U.S.A. Corp. is now registered for use on beans (succulent shelled), peas (dried and succulent shelled), asparagus, herbs, and leafy greens. California and New York registrations are pending. 

Chateau (flumioxazin) is now registered for strawberries in California. The product also received a label for use in dry bulb onions in Alabama, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington DC, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.
