FMC/Emerge to debut 3rive 3D system
FMC is to make a limited introduction of its 3rive 3D pesticide application technology in the US this year in partnership with US equipment company Emerge Application Solutions (Owensboro, Kentucky). A full launch is scheduled for 2016. Emerge will produce, sell and service the application equipment and FMC will supply specially formulated products for use with the system. The first available product will be the maize insecticide, Capture 3rive 3D (bifenthrin), and others are in development. The technology will allow the combination of multiple insecticides, fungicides and biostimulants, FMC points out.
