INLINE HAY MOVER—Corbin Steel Products introduces the Hay Express Sidekick, an attachment for a flatbed trailer that uses the same idea as an inline hay hauler. It is designed to fit on top of 102- or 96-inch flatbed trailers. Once the Sidekick is placed on a trailer, the user bolts it to the side rails and it is ready to go. It is available in 27-, 32- or 37-foot singles or doubles. For more information, call 877-448-6325 or visit www.corbinsteel.com.
ASPIRATING MIXER—The Air-O-Lator Corporation offers the redesigned Enterprise Aspirating Mixer with increased airflow, pumpage rate, and thrust. In water treatment, an aspirating mixer must introduce and mix air into the water at a high volume in order to metabolize present aerobic microorganisms. The mixer uses a high volume, axial flow, propeller pump design that operates within a close tolerance throat. The water propelled
from the throat is forced through a specially designed venturi nozzle, more than doubling its velocity. For more information, call 816-226-6958.
WIRELESS IRRIGATION MANAGEMENT—Lindsay Corporation announces the next generation of FieldNET wireless irrigation management. The new FieldNET now includes several new features and user interface enhancements. Also new are apps that are compatible with the iPhone, iPad and Android devices. FieldNET includes a system dashboard that provides a graphical overview map of a grower’s entire irrigation operation, even across multiple farms. A new feature allows users to click or tap a status icon on the main system dashboard and access a Quick Tray to manage irrigation functions without ever leaving their system dashboard. In addition to controlling pivots, laterals and pumps, FieldNET can monitor and record water usage, energy usage and tank or pond levels. Growers can also monitor web-based weather information. For more information, call a local sales representative or visit www.myfieldnet.com.
Herbicide receives EPA registration
FMC Corporation has received Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration on a new herbicide, Anthem herbicide, a preplant, preemergence and early postemergence herbicide for corn. Anthem provides growers with an excellent weed management tool for broad-spectrum weed control and resistance management along with a low-use rate.
A result of several years of planning, research and development, Anthem herbicide will allow growers application flexibility during the spring season.
"Anthem use rates are approximately four times less than most residual corn herbicides," said Tim Thompson, FMC Agricultural Products North America product manager. "The easy to handle liquid formulation and low-use rate means growers and custom applicators can get more acres sprayed in a day, which is critical during the busy spring."
In-field results from 2011 and 2012 Anthem test plots demonstrated excellent crop safety for all types of corn. Studies indicate that Anthem herbicide is an effective, convenient product with application flexibility for all tillage systems. There were more than 90 research test plots in 2012 across a broad geography on a wide range of soil types and in both irrigated and non-irrigated acres.
"The long lasting residual of Anthem herbicide could set new standards for broad-spectrum, grass and broadleaf weed control in corn, resulting in better crop protection and higher yields," said Bob Hooten, FMC Agricultural Products North America technical support manager.
