ADAMA Canada is introducing new crop protection products for imidazolinone tolerant (Clearfield) lentils as well as all peas and soybeans in time for the 2023 crop year.
Davai A Plus, a broad-spectrum herbicide with two modes of action, will be registered for imidazolinone tolerant lentils, peas and soybeans. The introduction of Davai A Plus is one part of the company’s ongoing strategy to meet the needs of Canadian growers while adapting to ongoing global supply chain issues.
“This new registration brings product choice to growers for a crop that historically had none,” says Cornie Thiessen, general manager of ADAMA Canada. “We’re proud to offer Canadian farmers a growing selection of high quality crop protection products.
ADAMA says lingering supply chain issues plaguing global industry have been complicated by the ongoing European energy crisis, all of which is expected to contribute to higher prices and product shortages for some crop protection products again in the 2023 crop season.
ADAMA says it has used its global network to ensure it has a resilient supply chain for Canadian farmers and is bringing as much production to North America as possible taking advantage of their various facilities and partnerships in both Canada and the United States. This network, the company says, allowed it to add much needed supply of 2,4-D and MCPA to the Canadian market last year.
