EPA registers 2 Adama rice herbicides

Adama's zurax and vopak herbicidesThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has registered two rice herbicides from Adama: Vopak 3ME and Zurax L.

Vopak 3ME is a microencapsulated formulation of clomazone, which provides residual activity on grass and broadleaf weeds, according to a news release. It can be applied preplant through early post-emergency and can be applied by ground or by air.

Zurax L is a liquid formulation of quinclorac that controls annual grass and broadleaf weeds, including barnyardgrass and large crabgrass. It has a flexible application window and can be foliar-applied to dry- or water-seeded rice as well as soil applied before, during or after planting dry-seeded rice.

Zurax L offers increased ease-of-use, a flexible application window and can be foliar applied to dry- and water-seeded rice as well as soil-applied before, during or after planting dry seeded rice.

The two new products join Adam’s Preface and Postscript herbicides that are paired with the FullPage rice cropping system.

“Adama is excited to continue building our rice portfolio,” Jake Brodsgaard, Adama USA CEO said in the release. “Our growers demand value-oriented, effective solutions, and we’re dedicated to bringing high-preforming, cost-effective solutions to the market.”
