Syngenta Formulation change

Newly registered, higher concentrate fluroxypyr product for more convenient, lighter packaging.

Barricade is a new prepackage of tribenuron and thifensulfuron (group 2s), and fluroxypyr (group 4) for controlling a wide range of broadleaf weeds in wheat and barley from two-to flag-leaf stage. Barricade can be tank mixed with a number of wild oat and broadleaf products.

DuPont has received registration for 5 new PrecisionPac herbicides. A PrecisionPac herbicide is a custom blended formulation of DuPont actives to target the exact weed spectrum and packaged for the exact acreage a grower needs that product for. DuPont will now be able to offer growers 14 PrecisionPac products in 2010

Newly registered, higher concentrate fluroxypyr product for more convenient, lighter packaging.

New on the label

New minor use registration for treating wild mold in dry beans

There will be lots of new names of crop protection products on retailer’s shelves again this year. However, nearly all of the new names are just that — new “names” for existing chemistry. In most cases all we are seeing is rebranding of existing products and/or new prepackaging of existing active ingredients.

This is not to say there is nothing new. In fact there are a number of new chemistries which are still awaiting registration. Some of these new products are included in the following summary of pesticide changes for 2010. These products are not guaranteed to be available this year. They might not even receive registration in 2010. They have simply been included to give readers a heads up of chemistries that are in the pipeline.

The other point to remember when reviewing the following new product list is even though many of these products are simply rebranding, they are still beneficial to growers. Competition between companies to sell an active ingredient under their own label or brand can lead to lower prices. As well, a number of companies offer reward and rebate programs, and when a company has a larger and more diverse portfolio of products, a grower participating in a reward program will have more selection to maximize rewards.

Here is the list of new pesticides and existing pesticide label changes for 2010, listed alphabetically for each category:
