Agrishow, the largest agricultural technology fair in Brazil which brings together the main product launches in the sector, will take place from April 29 to May 3 in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil.
According to Embrapa, Brazil is the second largest producer of soybeans, behind only the United States .During the 2016/2017 harvest, soybeans occupied an area of 33.89 million hectares, which total a production of 113.92 million tons. Today, soybeans are the main crop of Brazilian agribusiness, being produced mostly in the states of Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul and Mato Grosso, which account for 65% of the country's agricultural production.
To help maintain the high productivity of soybeans in Brazil, Ourofino Agrociência will introduce, during Agrishow, the main solutions for crop management, such as the recently launched herbicides Templo (glyphosate
), PonteiroBR (500 g/L sulfentrazone) and the fungicide Nillus (chlorothalonil). Templo has an exclusive surfactant system and Duo Sal technology, which guarantees agility and safety in the control of weeds in soybean, corn, cotton, sugar cane, coffee, and others. It also offers high performance, even with rainfall two hours after application.
Nillus is a protective fungicide with liquid formulation and multisite action used in the management of the resistance of fungal diseases. According to Embrapa, fungicides with chlorothalonil stand out when applied sequentially, and is recommended for the management of soybean due to the performance and results in the control of rust.
PonteiroBR, on the other hand, is a herbicide based on sulfentrazone. For soybeans, the product is indicated in applications that precede off-season or autumn planting, and also pre-emergence post-emergence for difficult-to-control weeds. The solution stands out from other herbicides by its high performance in the management of weeds resistant to glyphosate. It also has other characteristics, such as a broad spectrum of residual control, long half-life (150 - 180 days), high solubility, good drought tolerance and efficient behavior in straw and crop residues.
The products developed by Ourofino Agrociência are aligned with the specific characteristics of Brazil, such as sunlight, high temperatures, high humidity and high infestation of pests and diseases. "They are reimagined products for Brazilian agriculture, with formulations designed to withstand the great performance challenges in a tropical environment," noted Antonio Nucci, the company's Fungicide Products manager.
