Cereals Preview: New oilseed rape herbicide helps to reduce risk

With what often feels like a diminishing armoury of active ingredients for crop protection, this year’s Cereals will showcase a number of new products making their way to the market.

Growers at Cereals will get their first chance to explore the full potential of a new oilseed rape herbicide.

Belkar (halauxifen-methyl + picloram) from Corteva Agriscience, is a new post-
emergence spray for broad-leaved weeds including cleavers, poppy, shepherd’s purse, fumitory
and cranesbill.

Establish

 

Corteva says Belkar will allow growers to see crops establish before investing in crop protection, rather than investing up front in pre-emergence treatments.

Belkar received approval last year and is now available to growers across the UK and Ireland for applications this autumn.

Challenges

John Sellars, oilseed rape herbicide product manager, says: “For years oilseed rape growers have had to invested in herbicide strategies before they see the crop establish.

“Belkar allows growers and their agronomists to wait and see what challenges they have in the field before deciding on the best strategy.”

Also on the Corteva stand, growers will have the opportunity to see wheat crops treated with the pipeline fungicide Inatreq Active, which offers control of septoria tritici, rust and other diseases.

Curative

The new cereals fungicide has received EU annex 1 approval and Corteva hopes for regulatory approval later this year, paving the way for first sales in the UK and Ireland in 2020.

Inatreq Active’s preventative and curative attributes are expected to be welcomed as a much-needed weapon, as the first new molecule with broad-spectrum activity to be added to the fungicide armoury in more than a decade.

According to Corteva, the active has a unique site of action for cereal fungicides with no cross-resistance to existing chemistry, including triazoles, strobilurins and SDHIs.

The company’s national lead on cereal fungicides, Stuart Jackson, will give an overview of Inatreq’s attributes and benefits to growers in the Innovation and Technology Theatre at 1pm on Wednesday, June 13.
