New herbicide Paradigm with Arylex active.

Published on 08/06/2016

Using the newly developed Arylex compound, Paradigm is a flexible, low dose, wide spectrum solution for control of broadleaf
weeds in cereals.
Available in 500 gram packs, the easy to use formulation can be tank mixed with many other products, simplifying applications and saving time.
Paradigm has been developed for post emergent use in wheat, barley and triticale to control fumitory, cleavers, volunteer brassicas, shepherds purse, chamomiles, mayweeds, cornbind and a wide range of other broadleaf weeds.
Paradigm is a true all-rounder solution, with an emphasis on flexibility of application timing, tank mix compatibility and a weed control spectrum that offers cereal farmers an excellent weed management solution.
“Paradigm is a truly impressive product, brought to fruition through many years of research and development by Dow Agrosciences,” says Nick Koch, New Zealand marketing manager.
“There are only a few true research and development companies that are searching for and discovering new chemistry, and once a new molecule is found it can take more than 15 years of development to bring a product to market.
“So when a new product finally achieves registration, it’s a big deal. It gives farmers a new flexible weed control solution that actually helps to improve production - and that’s the bottom line.”
Paradigm has been developed with the time-poor farmer firmly in mind.
With the flexibility to ‘mix and match’ Paradigm with other products in the spray tank, farmers can achieve one pass weed, pest
and disease control, thereby saving time and money and reducing soil compaction.
Formulated using Go Dri technology, the 500 g WDG packs are easy to handle, clean and dispose of via the AgRecovery programme.

Koch says Paradigm is highly selective to the crop and breaks down very quickly, with its active ingredients Arylex and florasulam rapidly metabolised in the crop and the soil without causing any residue or carryover issues.
It is broadly compatible with other agricultural chemicals and is extremely flexible in terms of application timing with a wide application window, ideally being applied early in the season on small weeds but also suiting later application to crops, as late as full flag leaf emergence.
Paradigm has been extensively tested across NZ with research trials over several years, and a wide demonstration program with both farmers and agronomists last season.
“Across these trials the feedback on Paradigm has been overwhelmingly positive, with particular attention drawn to its effectiveness on control of fumitory, particularly in cold conditions,” Nick Koch says
Dow Agrosciences recommends mixing with Uptake spraying oil to maximise performance.

Paradigm will be available this season from selected reseller agents. Contact your local Dow AgroSciences representative for more information.
