New Parallel Plus Formulation
Parallel Plus herbicide, manufactured by MANA Crop Protection, has received approval by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for a new state-of-the-art formulation of metolachlor and atrazine for use on corn and grain sorghum.
Using MANA Crop Protection proprietary technology, new Parallel Plus provides superior levels of material stability, optimizing suspension integrity during pre-season (winter) storage and in advance of spring application. Parallel Plus also requires less time and manual attention to handling and mixing, thus eliminating the need for monthly re-circulation during extended storage periods.
Extending the value of new Parallel Plus is the inclusion of benoxacor, a superior crop safener that enhances a plant’s ability to metabolize metolachlor, therefore reducing the potential for crop injury and providing two modes of action. Parallel Plus provides excellent pre- and early postemergent control of grasses, pigweeds, waterhemp and other small-seeded broadleaves, including glyphosate resistant weed species.
MANA Crop Protection is the exclusive marketer of Parallel Plus, which is immediately available for 2011 fall delivery in 2.5 gallon containers, 270 gallon totes and in bulk quantities.
