Arysta LifeScience Receives EPA Approval on Two In-Furrow Products

Arysta LifeScience North America recently received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approval on two new products, both of which feature patented formulation technology that is liquid fertilizer-compatible for in-furrow application: TEPERA PLUS fungicide + insecticide and TEPERA fungicide.

Both are efficient ways for growers to get plant health benefits while battling seed- and soil-borne diseases, as well as insect pests (with TEPERA PLUS), says Arysta LifeScience.

“TEPERA PLUS and TEPERA are easy-to-use products for corn and soybean growers to optimize crop performance,” said Deneen Sebastian, Marketing Manager, Arysta LifeScience. “Both these products round out our fungicide package, which offers growers the ability to protect their seed and their crops from planting through harvest.”

TEPERA PLUS and TEPERA do not require dilution or special equipment to go into solution with liquid starter fertilizers, removing a step for growers; both formulas can stay in solution with minimal agitation and also can be applied with water.

Both products contain fluoxastrobin, one of the most highly systemic and residual strobilurins that goes into the soil solution to protect the seed from soil-borne and seedling disease. Because of its residual activity, TEPERA and TEPERA PLUS stay in the soil and are then taken up by the roots to protect the emerging plant and provide plant health benefits.

TEPERA PLUS Fungicide + Insecticide
Containing a combination of fluoxastrobin and bifenthrin, TEPERA PLUS will offer an all-in-one product to control seed-borne and seedling diseases as well as soil insect pests. TEPERA PLUS will provide defense against insects including corn rootworm larvae, wireworms, seed corn maggots, grubs and cutworms.

Although TEPERA and TEPERA PLUS will focus primarily on corn and soybeans, the product also will be registered in other crops.

Research & Results
On-farm field trials in corn in 2016 showed better germination for higher plant stand count and even ear set, resulting in an average yield increase of 14.2 bushels per acre over the untreated. In soybeans, yields averaged 7.9 bushels per acre over untreated.
