CRT SA : Super Summer Savings 2012
There’s always better value at CRT. www.crt.com.au There’s always better value at CRT. Crop Protection TechUpdate–Summer2012 Issue 3 Summer 2012 Tech Update New grain protection options on the way Dow AgroSciences will release a new stored grain treatment in early 2013 to protect against pests, such as the lesser grain borer, which have developed resistance to a number of key actives. The new product, ConserveTM ON-FARM , is based on the highly successful spinosad molecule which is used in Dow AgroScience’s NaturalureTM range of products. Spinosad is also used in chewable tablets for dogs and lice treatments for sheep, making it also very safe as an active in this new grain protectant. Conserve ON-FARM will be highly effective against the lesser grain borer, however, to get the best protection against all grain storage insects, it will be sold in an on-farm combination pack with ReldanTM pluS. Practicing a high level of on-farm hygiene is one of the best ways to manage storage pests for any grain that is stored on-farm for long periods, especially seed stored for next year’s crops or held for sale later in 2013, depending on global grain pricing. To manage grain storage for the 2012 harvest, Dow AgroSciences still have their highly successful range of Reldan, TM ReldanTM pluS IGR and RizaconTM products which, when used correctly and with proper on-farm hygiene, will prove effective. It is important to note that these products are not for sale to farmers in Western Australia due to state legislation, whilst Reldan and Reldan pluS cannot be used on malting barley or rice.
