Syngenta, John Deere create insecticide delivery system

Agriculture.com Staff 07/19/2007 @ 7:35am

Syngenta Crop Protection has announced the launch of the newly registered Force CS soil-applied insecticide.

Force CS has been designed to deliver control of corn rootworms and early-season pests in a liquid formulation. Soil-applied insecticides currently on the market can typically lack concurrent performance and convenience, company officials say. But Force CS delivers both in a delivery system manufactured by John Deere. Through the Central Insecticide System, growers can apply Force CS during corn planting.

"Through the Central Insecticide System, growers can apply Force CS to their corn acres as needed because the system is integrated with the planter," says Caydee Savinelli, Force technical brand manager, Syngenta Crop Protection.

Force CS is drawn from its closed packaging via direct injection and mixed with water. The solution is then delivered to the individual planter row units and applied in a T-band over the furrow so there are no recirculation or compatibility issues.

"This central fill, closed-handling system allows the operator to apply insecticide at planting while decreasing potential insecticide exposure to the operator," said Rob Rippchen, division marketing manager, John Deere Seeding.

The Central Insecticide System will be available on John Deere 1790 Planters (30-inch only), 1770 NT CCS Planters with Pro-Series Row Units, and DB 80 and DB 90 CCS Planters with Pro-Series Row Units. The new system can be ordered now and will be available for the spring 2008 planting season.
