Thunder Creek Equipment, Pella, Iowa, announced a new 40-gallon option
Thunder Creek Equipment, Pella, Iowa, announced a new 40-gallon option for delivery of diesel exhaust fluid available on its 500-gallon standard fuel trailer. The option gives owners a field-ready solution for diesel and DEF in a package that can easily be hauled by a half-ton pickup. It's a stainless steel tank mounted on the top of the toolbox that connects to Thunder Creek's 2-in-1 DEF pumping system. The pumping system makes handling DEF easy by allowing owners to fill and empty the DEF tank using just one pump. This eliminates the need to purchase a separate DEF pump.

Companies reach pact on corn trait technology
Monsanto Company and Dow AgroSciences LLC, a subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, have reached new cross-licensing agreements for creation of the next generation of advanced weed and insect control technology in corn. Monsanto will license Dow AgroSciences’ new Enlist Weed Control System herbicide-tolerant trait for use in field corn.
Dow AgroSciences will license Monsanto’s third generation corn rootworm technology, Corn Rootworm III, which is under development by Monsanto and offers a new mode of action for rootworm control.
The agreement paves the way for introduction (pending regulatory approvals) of next-generation products that build off the SmartStax platform, which includes Dow’s Herculex and Monsanto’s insect resistance and herbicide-tolerance traits.
These technologies are expected to be introduced in each company’s respective elite, proprietary germplasm and sold competitively by both companies as next-generation weed and insect control products.
The agreements build on the competitive standard set by SmartStax for stacked-trait corn offerings in providing added value for farmers in their ongoing need to secure higher yields despite wide-ranging pressures from damaging pests. This creates the opportunity to bring together for the first time three different modes of action for below-ground insect control in a corn product.
Stacked trait products are particularly valuable for combating pest resistance and preserving trait durability. Weed resistance is also a challenge facing agriculture, and Enlist is a next-generation system that combines innovative traits providing tolerance to 2,4-D and FOPs, novel herbicides and stewardship, offering two modes of action for weed control to deliver performance that farmers need now.

dewormer mix line
AgriLabs has added Agri-Mectin Plus Clorsulon to its range of branded anthelmintics.
Agri-Mectin Plus Clorsulon is a sterile injectable dewormer that offers the advantages of ivermectin 1 percent, plus clorsulon to expand treatment and control of liver flukes in cattle.
Across the United States, there are several regions that are endemic, essentially where the soil and environment are wet and support snail habitats. When snails become infected with the parasite Fasciola hepatica, they shed a motile ciliated form that attaches to grass and are subsequently ingested by grazing cattle, migrate to their liver where they grow and shed eggs back into the environment to continue the cycle again, according to officials at the St. Joseph, Mo. company.
AgriLabs provides a broad range of widely used parasiticides for cattle, sheep and swine. Products include Agri-Mectin 1 percent injection, Agri-Mectin Pour-On, Prohibit and Agri-Mectin Plus Clorsulon. All AgriLabs products, plus supportive nutrients often used when deworming, are available from their network of distribution partners.

Collaboration between New Energy Farms and Competitive Green Technologies
A miscanthus-based bioplastic products collaboration between New Energy Farms and Competitive Green Technologies in Leamington, Ontario, in Canada, has resulted in a commercial application. The development of these products is based on the principle of fractionating the bale not the barrel, to extract fibers for multiple end uses including composite manufacture, fuel and animal bedding. The current site uses 30,000 tons of biomass per year for heating of 40 acres of glasshouse vegetables, with 2,000 acres of miscanthus established. The first products are storage bins and plant containers, made from a blend of recycled plastic and high levels of miscanthus fiber. The process allows products with high levels of plant fiber to be manufactured at the same speed as for using virgin plastic. This provides products with less plastic to the customer at competitive prices. The first storage bins have been successfully test marketed at a national chain level.
