Helm Agro launches three herbicides for soybeans

helm agro logoTampa, Florida-based Helm Agro US has launched four new herbicides, of which three are registered for use in soybeans.

• Quiz herbicide is a single-pass tool for controlling annual and perennial grasses in soybeans, cotton, canola, dry beans, sugar beets, sunflowers and other crops, plus non-crop areas. It also has superior crop safety features and a wide application window, according to a news release.

As a bonus to soybean growers — the product will control volunteer corn in glyphosate-tolerant soybeans. Quiz herbicide is available in 2 x 2.5-gallon cases and contains 0.88 pounds of the active ingredient, quizalofop-P-ethyl, per gallon.

• Helmet herbicide and Helmet SPC herbicide are Helm’s new metolachlor offerings for grass and small-seeded broadleaf control in corn, cotton, sorghum, potatoes, soybeans, tomatoes and other crops.

Available in easy-to-use emulsifiable concentrate formulations, Helmet and Helmet SPC can be applied alone or in a planned two-pass program.

Helmet herbicide contains 7.8 pounds of metolachlor plus benoxacor safener per gallon. Helmet SPC herbicide contains 8 pounds of metolachlor without safener per gallon. Both products are packaged in 2 x 2.5-gallon cases and 270-gallon totes.

• Argos Ultra herbicide is a premix of metolachlor and mesotrione, two active ingredients known for efficacious weed control and long-lasting residual.

Approved for field corn, sweet corn, yellow popcorn and grain sorghum, Argos Ultra combats hard-to-manage grasses and small-seeded broadleaf weeds. It also is effective on biotypes resistant to glyphosate, ALS-inhibiting, PPO and triazine herbicides.

Argos Ultra, which is tankmix compatible with glyphosate, contains 3.76 pounds of metolachlor and 0.33 pounds of mesotrione per gallon. It is available in 2 x 2.5-gallon cases.
