One of the features of sunflower is slow seed germination. As a result, this crop is more susceptible to weed overgrowth than others. Harvest damage from phytosanitary problems in sunflower can reach up to 100%. Weeds pose the greatest danger in the early stages of the growing season, when a rudimentary basket is formed. It is important to prevent the development of weeds during the first 40 days.
Treatment with selective phytotoxic preparations can solve the problem radically and provide optimal conditions for the cultivation of oilseeds. Syngenta has developed and produces super-effective sunflower herbicides. Their use guarantees high cleanliness of the land from weeds, obtaining a consistently high yield.

The drug provides comprehensive protection of sunflower hybrids from most types of dangerous weeds, including broomrape races. A key element of the Clearfield® Plus intensive oilseed technology. Simultaneously destroys dicotyledonous and cereal weeds. Does not significantly affect the crop rotation scheme.
LISTEGO® Pro is produced in the form of an aqueous solution. Supplied in a 10 liter plastic container. Spray crops in the phase of 2-3 leaves with a working solution prepared at the rate of 0.8-1.0 liters of the drug per 200-300 liters of water.

Cropwise Platform® Operations
One of the new products developed by Syngenta specialists is the Cropwise® Operations digital platform. Designed to facilitate the conduct of agribusiness by large-scale producers. The information platform helps to track the progress of agrotechnical field work in real time, control the distribution of resources.
With Cropwise® Operations mobile apps, you can get satellite imagery of fields. Based on them, it is convenient to analyze the state of crops, plan work, predict the harvest, track the dynamics of field work. The weather service will provide accurate data on precipitation, humidity and air temperature. It will help to form the optimal window for the use of plant protection products in a particular farm.
Product quality, counterfeit problem
Due to the increased popularity of Syngenta® plant protection products, there are many counterfeit products in this segment of the agrochemicals market. Counterfeit products imitate original ones, which harms not only Syngenta, but also agricultural producers who purchase and use agricultural chemicals with dubious properties.
The Syngenta company systematically fights against this negative phenomenon. In particular, specially made containers with several degrees of protection are used for PPP packaging. You can reliably protect yourself from counterfeit products if you buy plant protection products only from the official distributor of Syngenta. At the same time, the agricultural producer will receive additional benefits.
