Summers Manufacturing, Devils Lake, N.D., has added internal mud scrapers to its rolling basket attachments for tillage equipment. The design increases the performance of Summers' rolling baskets, allowing them to effectively break clods, mix residue and level the soil profile in most field conditions. Without scrapers, rolling baskets are prone to accumulate with mud, adding significant weight that could cause damage to the unit. Featuring a three-piece configuration, the mud scrapers are mounted inside the rolling baskets. The mud scrapers are standard on Summers' line of rolling basket attachments, offered in 6-, 8- and 10-foot widths. The baskets are used in conjunction with three-bar mounted harrows on the Summers Supercoulter and separate on the 2510 DT to provide an ideal field finishing solution. They can also be installed on a variety of other tillage implements offered by other manufacturers. For more information, contact a dealer or visit www.summersmfg.com.

Post-emergent herbicide aids corn production
Syngenta of Greensboro, N.C., has announced that Callisto GT post-emergence herbicide has received registration from the Environmental Protection Agency and major corn-producing states.
A premixed formulation of Callisto and Touchdown herbicides, Callisto GT provides convenience and post-emergence control of emerged broadleaf weeds and grasses, plus residual broadleaf weed control in glyphosate-tolerant corn. Resistant weeds have changed growers’ weed control strategies, and glyphosate is now best used in a tank mix to control targeted weeds, according to Gordon Vail, technical product lead with Syngenta.
Callisto GT targets emerged broadleaf weeds and grasses, such as Palmer amaranth, lambsquarters, waterhemp and ragweeds. Following a post-emergence application in up to 30-inch corn, susceptible weeds take up the herbicide through the treated foliage and cease growth soon after application.
As the newest addition to the Callisto Plant Technology (CPT) family of corn herbicide brands, Callisto GT provides growers with greater convenience, performance and a solution to help farmers grow more corn. Other CPT brands include Halex GT, Lexar EZ, Lumax EZ, Callisto Xtra and Zemax.
