Bayer debuts Velum Total in US

Bayer CropScience has introduced its novel nematicide/insecticide, Velum Total (fluopyram + imidacloprid), in the US following approval from the EPA. The company is making a limited introduction for use on cotton and peanuts in the south-east of the US, with a full launch expected in 2016 throughout the US. Velum Total is a unique blend of active ingredients to provide broad-spectrum, long-lasting control of nematodes and early-season insect pests, Bayer points out. Velum Total is applied in-furrow to protect and enhance early plant growth and establish a strong crop, Bayer notes. Growers can adjust application rates based on pest pressure. Bayer expects that use of Velum Total will be expanded in 2016 to include potatoes, sweet potatoes, fruiting vegetables and cucurbits. Registration for use on tobacco is expected in 2017.
