Reliable protection of corn

Corn is one of the main crop species - for several years it has been grown on more than 1 million hectares.

Its growth appears to be simple but, in reality, it requires special attention to all agrotechnical procedures, from balanced mineral fertilization through herbicide protection, to insecticide protection and leaf fertilization.

CIECH Sarzyna is expanding its portfolio of products dedicated to growing of corn. The well-known herbicide NIKOSAR 060 OD, appreciated by many users, was joined in 2017 by JUZAN 100 SC. JUZAN SC is a good additive to be mixed with the NIKOSAR 060 OD, which ensures full protection against weeds.

A new product introduced this year is TEZOSAR 500 SC. It is currently the only herbicide in the market that contains terbuthylazine in the solo version.

As a result, TEZOSAR 500 SC is an excellent component to be mixed with other products and greatly expands the spectrum of weed suppression.

Thanks to the properties of the active substance, it protects the plantation against reemergence of weeds for as long as 8 weeks. This time is of key importance for the growth and development of corn and for achieving a high yield of green forage and grain.

Depending on the amount of weeds at the plantation, weeds can be eliminated using one of the solutions composed of the products offered by CIECH Sarzyna:

  • TEZOSAR® 500 SC [1.0 l/ha] + NIKOSAR® 060 OD [0.5 - 0.7 l/ha] – basic protection against monocotyledon and dicotyledon weeds that combines foliar and soil action
  • NIKOSAR® 060 OD [0.5 - 0.7 l/ha]+JUZAN® 100 SC [0.75 - 1.5 l/ ha] – comprehensive protection against weeds that combines foliar and soil action in weed suppression.
  • TEZOSAR® 500 SC [1.0 l/ha] + JUZAN® 100 SC [1.0 - 1.5 l/ha] – broad protection against mostly dicotyledon weeds and extended soil action
  • TEZOSAR® 500 SC [1.0 l/ha] + JUZAN® 100 SC [1.0 l/ha] + NIKOSAR® 060 OD [0.7 l/ha] – a herbicide solution for demanding users that ensures very good soil action on monocotyledon and dicotyledon weeds; addition of NIKOSAR 060 OD greatly widens the spectrum of the suppressed weeds and the method of operation.

    The herbicide portfolio is supplemented by two foliar fertilizers: SARPLON KUKURYDZA with a balanced micro- and macro-component content. The other is SARMIN maKSi, which was registered and implemented in selected farms in different parts of the country in 2018 and its broad distribution started in 2019.

    CIECH Sarzyna is constantly expanding its portfolio and continues to develop new products for corn, which may be used in your farms in the upcoming vegetative periods.
