The evolution and ongoing development of plants and crops, enabled by science, is the focus of crop scientists. Scientific research to enhance productivity while sustaining the integrity of ecological processes encompasses crop science, including crop breeding, crop physiology, crop ecology, forage and grazinglands, nutritionally enhanced plants, seed science and technology, and turfgrass science.
The research is communicated and transferred among agronomists and those in related fields on topics of local, regional, national, and international significance. This research may then be used for practical applications.
ATO AZOXYCIDE is a broad spectrum, preventative fungicide with systemic and curative properties recommended for the control of many important plant diseases.
These additional benefits are due to positive effects on plant physiology. The effects may vary according to factors such as the crop, crop hybrid, or environment. ATO AZOXYCIDE may be applied as a foliar spray in alternating spray programs or in tank mixes with other registered crop protection products.
ATO AZOXYCIDE should be integrated into an overall disease and pest management strategy whenever the use of a fungicide is required
ATO FLYCIDE is used for pest management and suppression of insects that may vector diseases and maintenance of plant health
ATO GLYCIDE is a postemergent, systemic herbicide with no soil residual activity.
ATO GLYCIDE is generally non-selective and gives broad-spectrum control of many annual weeds, perennial weeds, woody brush and trees. It is formulated as a water-soluble liquid.
It may be applied through most standard industrial or field-type sprayers after dilution and thorough mixing with water or other carriers according to label instructions.
ATO MEPICIDE is a foliar-applied plant regulator
ATO MEPICIDE allows the grower to manage the cotton plant for short-season production leading to reduced risk of yield and quality loss due to delayed and prolonged harvest.
Benefits derived from the use of ATO MEPICIDE include increased early boll retention and/or larger bolls, reduced plant height which provides a more open canopy/less boll rot, improved defoliation, less trash and lower ginning costs, better harvest efficiency and a darker leaf color. These benefits can provide for earlier maturity and often result in improved yields.
ATO PROPOCIDE is a broad-spectrum fungicide for control of plant, turf and ornamental diseases
ATO PROPICIDE should be integrated into an overall disease and pest management strategy (IPM) whenever the use of a fungicide is required
