Belchim showcases new products at Cereals 2017

  • Hits: 1643

Leading agrochemical manufacturer Belchim Crop Protection is inviting farmers to come onto stand number 610 at this year’s Cereals event to enter a competition to win a Samsung 10” Tablet and to leave the stand armed with the knowledge of additional tools to increase crop yield.     

Visitors to stand 610 will have access to the company’s technical experts who will be on hand to discuss its expanding portfolio and provide solutions to a wide range of technical issues.  

“As active ingredients continue to come under regulatory threat we are aiming to redress the balance and 2017 will be another important year for both Belchim and growers alike” says Belchim’s Development and Marketing Manager, Simon Leak. “This year we are launching a new post-emergence maize herbicide that picks up some of the key problem weeds and adds robustness to the herbicide programme.  Added to that, with potential herbicide active ingredient losses in potatoes, starting with linuron, now confirmed for final use up by June 3rd 2018, Belchim are putting the full force of its technical expertise in this crop behind a number of very recent introductions.  Gozai is a broad spectrum contact herbicide and potato desiccant and Praxim is a pre-emergent residual herbicide with no varietal or soil type restrictions.”

The crop plots on Belchim’s stand will show these herbicides and other portfolio products in action to facilitate discussions on how best to incorporate them into your individual crop protection programme. 

Our focus is on you, so come and see us on stand 610 for refreshments and a chat.

CropTec 2016

Belchim Crop Protection attended the annual CropTec 2 day event on 29 – 30 November at the East of England Showground.  Over 4000 people from the Agrochemical and seed trade, growers, both independent and distribution agronomists, government institutes and associated businesses visited the event.  Belchim sponsored the Crop Protection seminar which was held on both days with presentations from a range of speakers, including Simon Leak, followed by a ‘crop protection post Brexit’ panel debate.  Both were very well received and audience participation in the debate was particularly lively.

Our stand had a constant flow of both growers and agronomists over the two days, and our expert Technical Team were on hand to discuss the Belchim product portfolio and listen to current market needs.  This is a keystone of our business and ensures we are placed to offer a high level of technical support to our customers.

Potato Growers Gain New Blight Fungicide

  • Hits: 2805

Potato growers are set to benefit from the addition of another new product to Belchim’s potato range, this time it is a new fungicide combination which offers effective control of both foliar and tuber blight via a combination of two well established active ingredients.

Kunshi has now been approved by the Chemical Regulations Directorate and contains the active ingredients cymoxanil and fluazinam explains Belchim Marketing and Development Country Manager Simon Leak.

 “Kunshi is available as an easy to use water dispersible granule (WG) formulation and has a use pattern of 8 applications with intervals of 7 days between sprays and a harvest interval of 7 days. It is an interesting combination of a curative compound and a multi-site fungicide in a ratio that delivers a high dose of cymoxanil at full rate (125 gai/ha) and 188 gai/ha of fluazinam.  Kunshi will offer growers rate flexibility in many different blight pressure scenarios as either a stand-alone product or when mixed with other blight products”

“From our trial results we also found a positive side effect on the control of sclerotinia.  The maximum label dose rate is 0.5 Kg/ha”

Belchim strengthens their Potato portfolio with new herbicide

  • Hits: 3504

Praxim, a new herbicide for use in potatoes has now gained approval from the Chemicals Regulations Directorate from January 2015.  Praxim contains the new residual active ingredient metobromuron which although previously registered in Europe was not supported through the re-registration process and was subsequently revoked.  Belchim took the decision to develop the molecule in 2008 and have since committed significant time, expertise and financial resources to bring the data package up to the current regulatory standards in both Europe and the UK.
