Cindy Zimmerman

AMVAC®, an American Vanguard® company, today announced 10 new products for 2020 at the opening of the Commodity Classic in San Antonio. The announcement is a result of the corporation’s successful legacy of acquisitions and its “Innovation with Speed and Discipline” product development process, concentrating on specific, customer-focused solutions.

New products to AMVAC include a recent acquisition of four herbicide brands from Corteva Agriscience™.

• Classic® Herbicide: Expands the postemergence weed control spectrum in soybeans.
• FirstRate® Herbicide: Provides preemergence and postemergence control of key broadleaf weeds in soybeans.
• Hornet® Herbicide: Delivers postemergence broadleaf weed control of glyphosate resistant weeds in field corn.
• Python® Herbicide: Allows flexible broadleaf weed control in soybeans and field corn.

AMVAC also announces:
The developmental product Impact CORE™ Herbicide, a postemergence corn herbicide combining effective modes of action from a Group 15 residual herbicide with the power of Impact® Herbicide. EPA registration of the product is expected in the first quarter of 2020.

A new glufosinate premix that uses a proprietary formulation technology to combine the active ingredient found in Impact Herbicide to provide postemergence weed control in LibertyLink® corn is also expected in the first quarter of 2020.

AMVAC has selected COUNTER® Insecticide/Nematicide, broad spectrum AZTEC® HC Insecticide and zinc, a key micronutrient in corn, as the first products to be packaged in SmartCartridge™ containers and offered as part of SIMPAS™ Applied Solutions, pending EPA registration. SIMPAS (Smart Integrated Multi-Product Application System) is being introduced in a few select markets in 2020.

In addition, AMVAC recently announced its new herbicide – Surepyc IQ™ – a combination of two powerful chemistries for control of tough broadleaves and sedges in warm season turf. It’s the first line-extension for the Surepyc brand.
