2016 Syngenta Cereals Tour Highlights New Technology

August 3, 2016

While the goal of cereals growers has largely remained unchanged – produce the best and most plentiful crop with the technology at hand – the technology used to aid their production continues to evolve. On July 10, approximately 15 Syngenta employees from the U.S. and Switzerland met in Fargo, ND, for the first leg of a four-day Cereals Tour to evaluate product performance, particularly that of the new Talinor™ cereals herbicide, in trials.

Talinor is a selective, post-emergence herbicide with two active ingredients and two different modes of action for control of broadleaf weeds in all varieties of spring wheat, winter wheat and barley. Talinor is not currently registered for sale or use in the United States and is not being offered for sale. EPA registration is anticipated for 2016, with sales to begin in 2017.

Here’s what they saw:
