Bayer to debut fluency agent in US in 2015

Bayer CropScience plans to launch its polyethylene wax seed treatment fluency agent in the US in 2015. The lubricant has been developed to reduce exposure to bees from neonicotinoid insecticides in dust generated by existing fluency agents. Large-scale trials by more than 88 users on over 60,000 acres (24,282 ha) this year showed that 90% of those surveyed found it performed equal or better than talc or graphite lubricants and 75% reported less dust and a lower use rate, Bayer points out. The agent was tested on more than 40,000 acres in the US and Canada last year (Agrow No 673, p 30).
