WINNIPEG, Manitoba, September 29, 2022 – Gowan Canada Inc., in collaboration with ISK BioSciences, is pleased to announce the launch of INSIGHT® 339SC, a new and powerful tool for pre-seed burnoff applications in wheat, corn, and soybean in Canada. On August 30, 2022, the companies received registration from the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) for INSIGHT 339SC, which will be available to farmers for the 2023 spring season.
INSIGHT 339SC is a group 14 herbicide powered by Tergeo® which is a new molecule discovered by Korean agrochemical company FarmHannong and has been jointly developed by Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha, Ltd and FarmHannong globally. INSIGHT 339SC provides rapid and effective pre-seed burn down of important broadleaf weeds like kochia, redroot pigweed, common lamb's quarters, and wild buckwheat. As a tank-mix partner with glyphosate, INSIGHT 339SC provides a valuable alternative mode of action important to western Canada.
"Managing weed resistance continues to be a core value of Gowan Canada. Our research tells us that INSIGHT 339SC's high level of activity on broadleaf and grassy weeds will be a valued addition to any herbicide resistance management strategy in the future," says Dale Ziprick, Product Manager for Gowan Canada.
