Chemtura debuts wheat seed treatments in US
Chemtura AgroSolutions is introducing two wheat seed treatments in the US based on Kureha’s fungicide, ipconazole. Rancona Pinnacle is a combination of ipconazole with the fungicide, metalaxyl, for the control of Pythium spp, Fusarium spp and other diseases. Rancona Crest combines the same active ingredients with the insecticide, imidacloprid, to provide early-season control of aphids and grasshoppers and the suppression of other pests. Chemtura received its first US approvals for ipconazole-based seed treatments in 2008 ( Agrow No 558, p 21).
