CANADIAN FARMERS REQUIRED TO USE BAYER CROPSCIENCE'S FLUENCY AGENT
Mar. 4, 2014
Seed World reports:
During the 2014 planting season, corn and soybean farmers will be required by Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) to apply Bayer CropScience's Fluency Agent to seed treated with neonicotinoid insecticides, such as clothianidin, thiamethoxam and imidacloprid.
Seed companies and local cooperatives will be the primary point of sale for the farmer-applied seed flow lubricant, explains Derrick Rozdeba, Bayer CropScience Marketing Communications manager in Calgary. The Fluency Agent reduces the dust released during planting and decreases the potential risk of exposure to pollinators.
