Valent debuts solo Metlock treatment in US

It has already been introduced in fungicide/insecticide combinations for canola and cereals ( Agrow No 634, p 20). Metlock is for the control of seedling diseases such as Rhizoctonia spp and Pythium spp. Sumitomo and Kureha agreed to develop metconazole for North American use in 2005 ( Agrow No 468, p 1).
