Post-emergence herbicide for third generation sugarcane developed in China
Feb. 17, 2017
Sugarcane is the most widely cultivated crop in Guangxi, with annual planting area of 18 million Mu. Due to the high temperature and humid weather in Guangxi, sugarcane fields are overgrown with grass and weed, causing severe damage to the quality and yield of sugarcane. Artificial control of weed is difficult and ineffective. Currently, the market is not well regulated and what is supplied in the market is mostly chemical herbicides, which has led to weed resistance after long years of use. As a result, the effectiveness of pesticides has worsened, while their costs have shot up.
Shandong Zhonghe Chemicals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Chinese agrochemical company Shandong Binnong Technology Co., Ltd., has succeeded in its innovative application of mesotrione for weed control in sugarcane fields, having developed a 38% mesotrione + Ametryn + cyanazine WP product. The innovative product has obtained registration and become a post-emergence oriented herbicide for third-generation sugarcane that fills up the gap with the use of mesotrione in herbicide for sugarcane fields.
