Producers will have an array of crop protection products for 2012 to combat increased weed and disease pressure.
Dow AgroSciences anticipates registration of Transform WG insecticide for this crop season. It will offer growers control of soybean aphids at a low use rate with low impact on beneficial insects. Transform is the first molecule to be developed in a new class of chemistry — the sulfoximines — making it an important resistance management tool for growers.
Although it won’t be available until the 2013 crop season, expect to read a lot about Enlist Duo, the herbicide component of the Enlist weed control system from Dow AgroSciences. Enlist Duo will be a postemergence product for use over the top of crops with the Enlist trait. It will offer a combination of glyphosate and a new 2,4-D. Colex-D technology, a technology package featured in Enlist Duo, is comprised of 2,4-D choline, the latest in formulation science.
