Willoughby, OH (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

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 Crop Protection Handbook for information on crop protection products.

In the 2013 Meister Pro Crop Protection Handbook, there are 12 new active ingredients and more than 300 new product names. Quickly identify the many different trade names for the same active ingredient and the different formulations available. Also, find out mode of action, LD50, and water solubility and compare newer products with older ones.

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, organics, biocontrols, and new technology or plant health.

“I can find basic chemistry information not available elsewhere,” said Ron Farrell, from Farrell Growth Group.

The 2013 Crop Protection Handbook is indispensable for locating new chemistries, for comparing new products with older ones and for tracking generics. The comprehensive trade name/active ingredient index, which has thousands of entries listed alphabetically, makes it easy to find information quickly.
