BRANDT products gain swift approval for use with new cropping systems

Press release: Eleven BRANDT formulations approved for use with New Dicamba and 2,4-D Herbicides

This is a media release sent by the manufacture rand other agriculture businesses.

BRANDT, a leading manufacturer of specialty products for the agriculture and turf markets, has announced that eleven BRANDT formulations have been approved for tank mixing with the new Dicamba and 2,4-D herbicides from Monsanto, BASF, Dow and DuPont. The approved products include four nutritional formulations and seven adjuvants that have been developed by BRANDT and tested by herbicide manufacturers following protocols and requirements set by the EPA.

BRANDT Smart Quatro, Flagship Foliar Nutritional Leads the Way

BRANDT¹s first foliar nutrition product to gain approval is BRANDT Smart Quatro®. The proprietary product contains key macro and micronutrients that are in high demand in row crop production. It is formulated for quick nutrient delivery and mobility, as well as advanced compatibility in complex tank mix environments. BRANDT Smart Quatro has been approved for use with BASF¹s Engenia and Dow¹s Enlist Duo with Colex-D technology herbicides.

Three additional BRANDT nutritional products have been approved for use with Enlist Duo with Colex-D technology. All are liquid chelates in the BRANDT Sequestar line: BRANDT Sequestar 4.5% Fe EDTA, BRANDT Sequestar 6% Mn and BRANDT Sequestar 9% Zn. These formulations are an excellent option for early application to get crops off to a strong start.

Seven BRANDT Adjuvants Approved

In the adjuvants category, BRANDT has seven adjuvant formulations that have been approved for tank mixing with the herbicides.

BRANDT¹s new proprietary adjuvants, BRANDT AdjuLock and BRANDT® OnSite, have been approved as Drift Reduction Adjuvants (DRA¹s) for BASF¹s Engenia. In addition to the DRA designation, BRANDT Adjulock was formulated with a non-ammonium sulfate water conditioner. For dicamba tolerant cropping systems, BRANDT is recommending BRANDT Smart Quatro, BRANDT AdjuLock, an approved glyphosate and Engenia as a tank mix for optimal performance.

BRANDT has four adjuvants approved for use with Monsanto¹s XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology and XtendFlex, and DuPont¹s FeXapan with VaporGrip Technology herbicides. The first is BRANDT OnSite, which has also been designated as a Drift Reducing Agent by Monsanto. The other three approved BRANDT adjuvants are BRANDT InSpray 90, a spreader/activator; BRANDT Torpedo, a multi-functional adjuvant; and BRANDT A+, a spreader/activator/drift control product.

Two BRANDT adjuvants are approved for use with Dow¹s Enlist Duo with Colex-D technology. These include: BRANDT Umbrella, a spreader/sticker; and BRANDT Inhance, an ammonium sulfate based water conditioner.
