When It Comes to Chemicals Safety is #1

Keeping safety in the forefront of your mind is important when applying any agriculture chemicals whether they be pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or any other agriculture chemicals.

agriculture chemicalsPesticides are chemicals used to control pests. It’s a broad term that includes such chemicals as insecticides for controlling insects, herbicides for killing and preventing weeds, fungicides to control or treat plant diseases, and other pesticides for the control of rodents, etc., on and around your property.

Many chemicals have the potential to be dangerous to humans, pets, the environment and other animals. That’s why it’s imperative to read and carefully follow the label directions on any container. Pesticides are poisonous and can harm you if swallowed, inhaled, accidentally gets into your eyes or onto your skin. The latter is the most common way that pesticides get into the body. They get in through cuts or wounds making you very ill. Taking necessary precautions by wearing protective clothing is very important when handling, applying or transporting these chemicals.

As a safety precaution it’s always a good idea for anyone handling pesticides to receive proper training in the following:

• reading and understanding information on pesticide labels
• avoid exposure through common sense and personal hygiene
• wear, use, and maintain personal protective gear and clothing (for example, goggles, respirators, and gloves)
• understanding the health risks associated with pesticide exposure
• knowing what to do in emergencies involving pesticides (first aid, spills, cleanup)
• safely transport, mix, load, apply, store, and dispose of pesticides and pesticide containers
• safely operate the mixing, loading, and pesticide application equipment

Chemicals such as pesticides are a useful product for many agricultural applications but you should learn as much as you can about them and the safety equipment required to protect yourself prior to your initial use.

Preemergents Successfully Eliminate Weeds

Growing a profitable soybean crop requires keeping weeds out. A wide variety of weeds can compete with soybeans at all stages of the growing season. Heavy weed pressure reduces yields and cuts into profits so it’s important to take advantage of reliable, sustainable solutions that improve productivity, profitability and crop safety.

We’re carrying Envive® herbicide now for providing highly effective weed control around soybeans. This is a preemergent that delivers more consistent weed control of the most challenging weeds including glyphosate-tolerant or resistant weeds commonly found growing in soybean fields.

Envive® performs in two ways — by removing resistant weeds then by protecting your crops throughout the growing season. This herbicide consistently controls and manages the toughest weeds including winter annuals, Palmer amaranth, common cocklebur, marestail, morningglory, sicklepod, waterhemp, lambsquarters, and other glyphosate- or ALS-tolerant or resistant weeds.

While Envive® works well in cool, wet conditions, burndown of winter annuals with Envive® and spring broadleaf weeds, plus residual control allows postemergence application to be made closer to the soybean canopy. This reduces the number of necessary in-crop herbicide treatments.

There is a greater potential for weed growth after harvest. If much of the crop is harvested earlier than normal, and fall weather stays mild, weeds that germinated later in the season could mature enough to produce more seed, adding to the weed seed bank. A post harvest herbicide application could be an excellent weed-control strategy in the fall and again in the spring.

Controlling Grassy and Broadleaf Weeds

Farmers looking for control of grassy and broadleaf weeds in their corn, sorghum, sugarcane and other registered crops, might want to buy Atrazine 4L. This product is well-known for its flexibility in timing of application and tankmix.

buy Atrazine 4LWhen you buy Atrazine 4L you are buying a powerful broad spectrum pre-and post-emergent herbicide that’s sure to help you to minimize weeds in your fields. It’s a flowable herbicide containing 4 lbs. active atrazine per gallon that provides season-long control. Furthermore, you’ll be pleased to know when you buy Atrazine 4L it is tank mix compatible with a wide variety of other herbicides as well as fluid fertilizers and can be applied before or after weeds emerge.

Since this product acts primarily through root absorption, its effectiveness depends on adequate moisture to transport it into the root zone. If weeds develop, a shallow cultivation or rotary hoeing will usually result in better weed control.

Whether used sequentially or tank mixed with other products, economically priced Atrazine 4L and 90DF herbicides complement the overall season-long performance of many herbicide programs. Atrazine 90DF herbicide is an advanced water-dispersible formulation. Decades of use have proven that this herbicide works reliably in a variety of cropping systems.

Grasses controlled include barnyard grass, giant foxtail, green foxtail, large crabgrass, wild oats, witch grass, and yellow foxtail. Broadleaf weeds controlled include cocklebur, ground cherry, jimsonweed (post-emergent only for 4L), kochia, lambs quarters, annual morning glory, mustards, nightshade, pigweed, purslane, ragweed, sicklepod, velvetlear (post-emergent), velvetleaf and wild buckwheat (post-emergent only).

farm chemicalsWith continuous use of land for planting crops year after year, it’s more important than ever to utilize the newest products you can find. Chemical products are the best method used for crop protection from insect and disease damage and includes fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and growth agents. Agrochemicals are designed to increase your crop productivity while decreasing damage and disease.

Chemicals that are actively used in farm fields for improving the production of crops also play a vital role in controlling pests and diseases. While using these chemicals to prevent disease, it is also important to implement strategic crop protection measures to protect against pests. These measures are adopted to handle prevention, suppression and eradication and include identification of pests and the damage caused by them, biologic aspects and development of the pests life cycle, and the correct method and time for controlling their population.

About Acephate Pesticide

The acephate pesticide is considered a general use insecticide and is used on many crops inside and outside the U.S. Classified as a General Use Pesticide (GUP), it is unlikely to harm the environment as long as you follow the directions on the product label.

acephate pesticideAs an organophosphate foliar spray or granular insecticide of moderate persistence, it ensures residual systemic activity of about 10-15 days at the recommended use rate. It is used for control of a wide range of biting and sucking insects, especially aphids, including resistant species, in fruit, vegetables (e.g. potatoes and sugar beets), vine, and hop cultivation and in horticulture (e.g. on roses and chrysanthemums grown outdoors). It also controls leaf miners, lepidopterous larvae, sawflies and thrips in the previously stated crops as well as turf, mint and forestry. Acephate is most effective on turf, tree, and ornamental pests. Also control ants (including imported fire ants), cockroaches, crickets, firebrats earwigs, pillbugs, sowbugs, pantry pests, and wasps.

Organophosphate insecticides, like acephate pesticide, work by interrupting the electrochemical processes that nerves use to communicate with muscles and with other nerves. This causes a build-up in the chemical acetylocholine. Eventually, the build-up of acetylocholine in the muscles causes over-stimulation, resulting in paralysis and death.

Considered non-phytotoxic on many crop plants, acephate and its primary metabolite, methamidophos, are toxic to Heliothis spp. that are considered resistant to other organophosphate insecticides.

Using Generic Ag Chemicals

In 2000, the generic glyphosate, previously patented by Monsanto and sold under the name Roundup, entered the market when the patent expired. The massive size of the glyphosate market brought generic agricultural chemicals to the forefront of the industry even though many generic agricultural chemicals like 2,4-D and atrazine were already in use.

generic agricultural chemicals“Several years ago, generics were a nonfactor in the agricultural herbicide market,” says John Rabby, president and CEO of Makhteshim Agan of North America. “Generic glyphosate increased the number of products, gave producers more choices and introduced producers to the concept of quality generic crop protection products.”

Approximately 85% of the majority of agricultural chemicals are off patent now, which means these chemicals now can be produced by any company. Because approximately 60% of all pesticides used in this country’s agriculture are herbicides, the market is huge.

A generic product usually develops its own brand identity – either a takeoff of a name-brand supplier or a store’s own proprietary brand name. Traditional brand names are discovering that generic products are taking more and more shelf space. And the same holds true for generic agricultural chemicals. Atrazine, for example, remains a popular active ingredient that’s found in many generic herbicide formulations sold under a vast assortment of names.

Generics have made a major and lasting impact on the agricultural chemical market, but competition will continue to remain fierce.

Cotton Harvest Aids

When you’re considering the various cotton harvest aids available it’s important to remember the objectives that include defoliation, boll opening, inhibition of regrowth, and weed desiccation. Selecting appropriate cotton harvest aids can be among the toughest, but most important decisions a cotton producer will have to make. There are few products that can accomplish all of the objectives at once. A combination of harvest aids usally are required.

cotton harvest aidsEarly defoliation can be critical in maximizing the yield. However, delaying defoliation allows immature bolls to develop, thus increasing the yields. Timing of defoliation impacts  characteristics of cotton quality. Defoliating too early or  late can negatively impact fiber quality, including micronaire and staple.

Cotton harvest aids usually are either herbicidal  or hormonal. Herbicidal compounds like Aim, Def, Folex, Harvade, and ET will injure the plant, reducing auxin levels and stimulating ethylene production. Ethylene will cause the leaf to form an abscission layer and drop from the plant. Examples of hormonal defoliants are Dropp, Freefall, Finish, Cottonquick, and Prep. These promote synthesis of ethylene in the plant.

Boll opening aids such as Ethephon 6, Prep, Super Boll, CottonQuik, and Finish (ethephon) enhance the activity of defoliants and hasten the opening of mature bolls. Thorough coverage is essential as these aids are not systemic. Ideally cotton should be picked 7 to 14 days following application of boll opening aids. Paraquat (Starfire) can enhance defoliation of juvenile growth when applied along with other defoliants but you must pick within 7 days when using paraquat to avoid bark contamination.

Slowing Down the Uptake of Chemical Sprays

Adjuvants are products which, when added to pesticides, herbicides, or feeding stimulants in spray tanks, increase their effectiveness by improving wetting, spreading, and adhesion to plants.

adjuvantsWe carry a variety of adjuvants that are made from non-ionic wetting agents and safeners for use in tank-mixture with agricultural and horticultural chemicals, to improve their performance. Products are used to improve adherence in periods of rain and other unsettled weather, as a safener in situations of marginal selectivity, or as an anti-transpirant, particularly in horticulture.

These adjuvants are based on a unique coating agents, which adheres pesticides and herbicides onto plants in a water resistant form, protected against degradation by sunlight, and against high temperatures. 

The coating agent slowly releases the active chemicals so they are available to the plant. This reduces phytotoxicity but greatly extends the action of the spray chemicals. Phytotoxicity is normally the result of a very rapid uptake of a chemical, during the first few hours after spraying by plants that are only relatively resistant to that chemical. In the case of weed killing, a delay of a day or two may be introduced by the use of adjuvants designed to slow down rather than speed up the uptake of spray chemicals by treated plants.
