Willoughby, Ohio (PRWEB) November 09, 2011
Keeping up with advances in crop protection technology is more of a challenge than ever. There are revolutionary changes in seed coatings, pre-mixes, plant health/stress reduction and reduced risk/organic treatments as well as many other new products. For nearly 100 years, members of the agriculture industry have relied on the Meister Pro Crop Protection Handbook for information on crop protection products.
The completely new and revised 2012 Crop Protection Handbook provides a balanced viewpoint based on good science and best management practices. Nearly 800 pages long, The 2012 Handbook provides detailed information on nearly every registered crop protection product, from trade names to mode of action. Completely revised and updated with eight new active ingredients and more than 200 new product names, the 2012 Handbook also includes a new section on the growth of chemigation and registered products.
The Handbook is the only reference that connects trade and common names back to the chemistry of the active ingredient. Easily recognized icons explain reduced risk, organic, biocontrols, and new technology or plant health.
“I can find the basic chemistry information not available elsewhere,” said Ron Farrell, from Farrell Growth Group.
The Crop Protection Handbook is indispensible for locating new chemistries, for comparing new products with older ones and for tracking generics. It is organized so you can find in seconds what you need in the comprehensive trade name/active ingredient index that has thousands of entries listed alphabetically.
Meister Pro’s 2012 Crop Protection Handbook allows you to:
- Track competing chemistries and keep up to date with generics.
- Find mode of action, LD50 and water solubility.
- Follow product development with biocontrols, seed coatings, premixes, chemigation and plant stress management.
- Find more than 100 expanded ProListings for newer products.
“You hit the important areas of new technology,” said Harold Reetz, of Reetz Agronomics.
Dave Whitacre, author and consultant, says, “I don't see how practitioners in crop protection can do without it."
