Visitors to the Life Scientific stand at Croptec will be able to enter a free tombola, with the chance to win a range of prizes including golf umbrellas, insulated lunch bags, torches and Wonder wipes.
The event will also see the debut of two new products from the company, set to be launched next spring. Kaskad is a reverse-engineered Debut containing 50% w/w triflusulfuron-methyl. Formulated to be a water-dispersible granule, this herbicide can be tank-mixed to control a range of broad-leaved weeds in sugar and fodder beet.
Sudo Mor is a reverse-engineered Moddus containing 250g/L trinexapac ethyl, a plant growth regulator for crop height reduction to prevent lodging control and protect yield in winter and spring wheat, barley and oats, as well as rye, triticale, durum wheat and grassland seed crops.
The company has also been working to get EAMU for Difenostar (difenoconazole) for use in linseed crops.
These additions are said to reflect the importance and significance of the UK market to the business. Since launching in the UK four years ago, Life Scientific has introduced more than 17 products for growers.
“We look forward to welcoming all visitors to the stand over the two days of Croptec, and having face to face conversations once again!” said Ruth Stanley, UK country manager for Life Scientific.
“Our team will be on hand to answer any questions on our current and developing product range, and in particular if you have any questions about the reverse engineering process and how our products meet registration requirements, Rachel Staunton, Life Scientific’s product characterisation lead, will be available to talk through how this process is managed from rigorous testing, to storage stability studies and developing analytical methods for active ingredients.”
