FMC will have a limited launch for a new corn fungicide next year. “What we’ve been able to do is create a formulation where we’re going in-furrow for corn planting with a fungicide and we’re getting foliar disease control all the way up to black layer,” said Brandon Schrage, technical service manager, FMC. “This is completely novel; it’s never been done before.” Xyway 3D will be available in a 3RIVE 3D platform on a limited basis for 2020. By 2021, a liquid-fertilizer-ready formulation is planned. “It provides inside-out protection. It will be continuously drawn up into that plant in concentrations that are efficacious.”
