Helm Agro, US Inc., Tampa, Florida, has launched four new crop protection products in the first quarter of 2018.
In total, Helm now has 19 crop protection products in its United States portfolio for the row crop, specialty crop and horticultural markets.
Argos Ultra herbicide is a co-formulation of metolachlor and mesotrione, two active ingredients known for efficacious weed control and long-lasting residual. Approved on field corn, sweet corn, yellow popcorn and grain sorghum, Argos Ultra combats hard to manage grasses and small-seeded broadleaf weeds. It also defeats weed biotypes resistant to glyphosate, ALS-inhibiting, PPO and triazine herbicides. A major contender with market leading brands, Argos Ultra contains 3.76 pounds of metolachlor and 0.33 pounds of mesotrione per gallon, and is available in 2 x 2.5-gallon cases.
Quiz herbicide is a single-pass tool for controlling annual and perennial grasses on soybeans, cotton, canola, dry beans, sugar beets, sunflowers and other crops, as well as non-crop areas. Quiz herbicide is available in 2 x 2.5-gallon cases and contains 0.88 pounds of the active ingredient, quizalofop-P-ethyl, per gallon.
Helmet and Helmet SPC herbicides are Helm’s new metolachlor offerings for grass and small-seeded broadleaf control in corn, cotton, sorghum, potatoes, soybeans, tomatoes and other crops.
Helmet herbicide contains 7.8 pounds of metolachlor plus benoxacor safener per gallon. Helmet SPC herbicide contains 8 pounds of metolachlor without safener per gallon. Both products are packaged in 2 x 2.5-gallon cases and 270-gallon totes.
