Crop Protection TechUpdate–Winter2014 Since launching onto the Australian market as the first off patent Clethodim, Cletho 240 from Kenso Agcare, has gained a reputation as a high quality, consistent performer in the fight against grass weeds. The active constituent, Clethodim, is renowned for its excellent activity on numerous grass weeds including one of Australia’s most devastating weeds, Annual Ryegrass. It’s important that growers choose a brand of Clethodim they can trust, such as Cletho, which is made to the highest standard. This is vital as the Clethodim technical grade active material is subject to degradation after manufacture so the efficient processing of the formulation is essential to the stability and consistency of the finished formulation. Growers also need to ensure the formulation contains the appropriate solvent and emulsifier ratios for efficient mixing, stability and compatibility. This year, Kenso is introducing a new, higher concentration formulation of Clethodim – Cletho 360 – which provides the same high quality formulation but offers savings on handling and storage because of its lower use rate. For more information on Cletho and other Kenso products, talk to your CRT Local Bloke.
