By Top Crop Manager
Jan. 20, 2016 - ADAMA Canada is adding three new products to their lineup - one insecticide, and two herbicides.
Sombrero 600 FS is a systemic insecticide that provides early season control of wireworms in cereals, corn and soybeans as well as flea beetles in canola. As the plant grows, Sombrero is transported throughout the developing stem and leaves, ensuring lasting insect control and giving the crop the defence to grow to its potential. Its active ingredient, imidacloprid, helps lay out bugs both above and below ground. This product is available in both Eastern and Western Canada.
Hotshot, ADAMA's new co-pack, is a glyphosate tank-mix partner for pre-seed burn-off to control a wide range of annual broadleaf weeds including Group 2 and 9 resistant kochia, volunteer canola including glyphosate resistant, wild buckwheat, dandelion and narrow-leaved hawk's beard. Hotshot consists of the active ingredients bromoxynil and florasulam, and when it's combined with glyphosate, it creates a weed resistance tag team that smokes early season weeds.This product is available in Western Canada.
Squadron is a broad spectrum herbicide registered for grass and broadleaf weed control in a wide range of crops, most notably lentils, peas, chickpeas, fababeans, soybeans and potatoes. Powered by the active ingredient metribuzin, Squadron is an excellent resistance management tool. This product is available in both Eastern and Western Canada.
These products hit the market in early 2016.
