Syngenta corrects Prairie pesticide guide

Syngenta Crop Protection Canada is offering Manitoba and Saskatchewan farmers stickers to correct the entries on Axial herbicide (page 90) and Quilt fungicide (page 282) in the two provinces’ 2009 Crop Protection Guides.

The company warned in a release Tuesday that Axial’s label does not allow tank mixes with the broadleaf products 2,4-D, Estraprop, Express Pack or Thumper, “due to the potential for crop injury.”

Also, Syngenta said, the correct registered rate for Quilt when applied to wheat and barley is 304 to 405 millilitres per acre. Stickers with this information can be ordered from Syngenta at 1-877-964-3682.
