Agrofina launched three new herbicides in the Aapresid Congress
Lisandro Guerrieri, Agrofina Technical Service Development Manager, spoke with Word of Field about the news that the firm took to Rosario.

During the Aapresid Congress, Agrofina, the company with the most complete line of herbicides on the market was present with its wide range of products presenting ALANA, its new herbicide that guarantees maximum control of the colored yoke and black branch in soybeans.

About that he spoke with Word of Field -by Radio 10- Lisandro Guerrieri, Agrofina Technical Service Development Manager. The specialist explained that Alana is a pre-sowing herbicide of exclusive formula, developed for the control of Conyza SP and Amaranthus SP in soybean cultivation. Its balanced formulation in diclosulam and flumioxazin is what allows a broad spectrum of control of difficult weeds.

Flumioxazin is a contact herbicide, with residual action in the soil, which acts by inhibition of the enzyme protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO). Diclosulam, on the other hand, is a systemic herbicide that acts by inhibiting the biosynthesis of the amino acid chain by interference with the enzyme acetolactate synthetase (ALS).

In this way ALANA is an integral solution to start planting crops that are free of difficult weeds. In addition, it has an excellent spectrum of control of difficult weeds, the balance of assets that guarantees Amaranthus SP and Conyza SP control and a combination of two mechanisms of action.

Among its qualities, they highlighted an excellent spectrum of control of difficult weeds, combination of two mechanisms of action, contact action, systemic and residual, suppressing effect of grasses, technological formulation with selected adjuvants that enhances the herbicidal action and improves the penetration in the ground

Agrofina also launched during the Halox 81 and Kylian 48 Congress, two post-emergent graminicidal herbicides with the maximum concentration of the market for selective systemic action for soybean, peanut, sunflower, bean and cotton crops among others.

Both allow controlling weeds once they have germinated and have a wide application window from newborn weeds to 30 or 40 cm high.

On the other hand, KYLIAN 48 is the most effective graminicide for the control of FOP-resistant Aleppo sorghum. agrolinkweb.com.ar
