Sumitomo Chemical will participate in the Bela + Digital 2020 agribusiness event.
As one of the supporters of the event, which will take place online this year, the Japanese company will explain the features of its product portfolio for corn and wheat crops.
According to the company, the herbicide, Crucial®, and the insecticide, Inside® FS, will be promoted. Organized by Belagrícola, Bela + Digital aims to maintain the sector’s distribution networks and the commitment of companies to technological diffusion in the field, even despite the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Sumitomo Chemical, the herbicide, Crucial®, has become a reference product for wheat and corn crops, especially due to its double salt technology, which results in a faster effect when controlling a wide range of leaf-invading plants, both wide and narrow. “The product is a strategic tool for ensuring a quick drying effect, even during rainy seasons,” said agronomist Carlos Amadeu (Trade Marketing Manager of Sumitomo Chemical).
In the area of pest control, Sumitomo Chemical will present its insecticide for the seed treatment of Inside® FS corn seeds at Belagrícola's event, one of the items on its SeedProtection® platform, which is also exclusive to the Japanese company. According to Amadeu, the product acts with high efficiency in controlling belly-green bug and corn leafhopper.
Based in Tokyo, Sumitomo Chemical is one of Japan's leading chemical companies. Founded in 1913, it is present in over 180 countries with 32,000 employees. Its main office in Brazil is located in the city of São Paulo. With the acquisition of Nufarm, the company’s employees in Latin America jumped from 130 to 800.
