April 16, 2018
CARY, NC (April 16, 2018) – Atticus announces the addition of three insecticides and two herbicides to its high-quality branded-generic corn and soybean portfolio, furthering its commitment to provide distributors and growers with relevant branded-generic fungicides, herbicides and insecticides for the U.S. row crop markets.
Atticus expands its insecticide lineup with the newly launched Serpent™ 1 EC (comparable to Karate®), a fast-acting lambda-cyhalothrin option for broad-spectrum insect control. Ruger™ 1 EC (comparable to Onager®) delivers 1 lb hexythiazox for full lifecycle control of spider mites and Decimite™(comparable to Comite® II) propargite solution quickly targets yield-robbing corn mites.
Joining the previously launched Cavallo™ 4 SC, a proven, reliable mesotrione-based selective herbicide, Atticus adds Stigmata™, a selective post-emergent herbicide that delivers excellent season-long control of the annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and woody brush that can infest crops including barley. Promote™ (comparable to Permit®), containing halosulfuron-methyl, has also been added and offers proven control of nutsedge and other broadleaf weeds without the damaging effects commonly left behind by other herbicides.
