DuPont launches its first ST in Brazil
DuPont has launched its first insecticidal seed treatment in Brazil. Dermacor (chlorantraniliprole - trade-marked as Rynaxypyr) is for the control of earworms (Helicoverpa armigera) on soybeans and cotton. It provides “highly effective” residual action against the pest. The company notes that Dermacor also provides extra benefits such as a stronger and more weather tolerant plant, and is the only available seed treatment for controlling earworms.
