Adama has obtained an extension of registration of two herbicides that compose the portfolio of the company. Poquer® is a systemic herbicide that controls a wide range of annual and perennial grasses, including those resistant to glyphosate, such as the resistant sourgrass, ryegrass and volunteer corn.
Already registered for the crops such as cotton, garlic, potato, coffee, onion, carrot, kidney beans, tobacco, manioc, watermelon, tomato and soybeans, now the herbicide will also be available for the crops of sunflower, apple, corn, wheat and grape. Besides the expansion of crop, the registration should include the product at the modality of application on pre-planting and sequential on cotton and soybeans.
Vezir® is post-emergent herbicide, systemic, selective for the crops of kidney beans and soybeans, which controls weeds in a wide spectrum. From now on, this product can also be used in aerial spraying mode for these crops and now attends the irrigated rice in both modalities of application, aerial and ground.
"The purpose of Adama is to create simplicity in agriculture and the extension of the registration of the products is one of the forms that the company has to follow this goal. Two herbicides are already known by producers and now can help in other crops and at different times. The Adama staffs are available to offer guidance regarding the use of this crop that would be included and also the best application timing,” said Pedro Singer, the portfolio manager of Adama.
