This will help rice growers improve the yield and quality, get more freedom and efficiency in their farm management and more freedom to trade across geographies and foodchain partners while protecting the crop and preserving the rice ecosystem.
Rinskor™ active is a new arylpicolinate herbicide from Corteva used all over the globe in seeded and transplanted rice as well as in several other cropping systems. Rinskor™ is the second member of the arylpicolinate chemistry developed by Corteva, after Arylex™ active. In 2018, Rinskor™ is a winner of the Green Chemistry Challenge Award presented by the American Chemical Society’s Green Chemistry Institute.
