Feb 1, 2019Higher-concentration version of fungicide AZteroid receives EPA approval
AZteroid FC 3.3 fungicide recently received approval from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). AZteroid FC 3.3 is a new higher concentration formulation of AZteroid FC from Vive Crop Protection.
“Farmers who grow sugarbeets, potatoes, dry beans, alfalfa or corn are going to find that AZteroid FC 3.3 provides the same excellent disease control and mixability with liquid fertilizer as its predecessor,” said Tony Zatylny, VP of Sales & Marketing, Vive. “It’s simply a more concentrated formulation for added convenience.”
AZteroid FC 3.3 is double the concentration of AZteroid FC, meaning that application rates will be cut in half. Zatylny commented: “It will be very important for customers to know which product they have in their shed so the correct rate is used.”
For both farmers and retailers, AZteroid FC 3.3 will take up less storage space, less transportation cost and fewer jugs to handle.
Both AZteroid FC and AZteroid FC 3.3 contain the Allosperse Delivery System. It uses nanotechnology to allow active ingredients to mix well with liquid fertilizer, other chemicals, micronutrients and hard water.
For 2019, AZteroid FC 3.3 will be available as state registrations progress. Farmers and retailers are encouraged to visit www.ViveCrop.com for the most up-to-date listings. For more information on AZteroid FC 3.3, email [email protected].
