September 29, 2022 By Top Crop Manager
Gowan Canada and ISK BioSciences have launched Insight 339SC, a new group 14 herbicide for pre-seed burnoff applications in wheat, corn and soybean in Canada.
On Aug. 30, 2022, the companies received registration from the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) for the new product. It will be available to growers for the 2023 growing season.
Insight 339SC is a group 14 herbicide powered by Tergeo, a new molecule discovered by Korean agrochemical company FarmHannong and has been jointly developed by Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha, Ltd and FarmHannong globally. Insight 339SC provides rapid and effective pre-seed burn down of important broadleaf weeds like kochia, redroot pigweed, common lamb’s quarters and wild buckwheat. As a tank-mix partner with glyphosate, Insight 339SC provides a valuable alternative mode of action important to western Canada.
