New tool for grain bin rescues
PMI's new grain evacuation tool, the G.E.T. Coffer Dam Solution, is a complete rescue solution designed and manufactured by Montezuma Rescue Innovations.
The G.E.T. Coffer Dam Solution consists of six interlocking aluminum panels used to form a circle and isolate an entrapped person from the grain surrounding them. Included in the solution are probe poles that make a target ring surrounding the subject to accurately position the panels. Also included is the Grain Portr, a revolutionary tool used to quickly remove the grain inside the G.E.T., thereby freeing the subject from the grain.
Designed with several key features to facilitate a timely rescue, the interlocking panels fit through the smaller openings found in the top of older style grain bins. In addition, two adjustable foot straps are included to help the rescuers drive the panels into the grain, and also help the subject step out of the G.E.T. once the grain level around him is lowered. Probe poles are initially used to ensure the panels are not driven into the subject, and then they quickly convert into a target ring which is placed around the subject in order to accurately position the six panels.The G.E.T. Coffer Dam Solution is able to be stored as a compact package and may be lowered easily into a grain elevator or bin in the storage configuration.

New formulation technologies reduce environmental impact
MANA Crop Protection announced its KlearSky Technology brand, which represents advanced formulation technology that embodies a range of attributes to deliver high performance and reduced impact on the environment. KlearSky Technology sets a new standard in formulation technology by encompassing the superior efficacy of conventional active ingredients while lowering product emissions and enhancing the handler experience through such features as lower odor, fewer personal protective equipment requirements and/or reduced signal word.
MANA products currently carrying the KlearSky designation include Paradigm, Vulcan and ABBA Ultra insecticides. All of these brands deliver reduced environmental impact and improved handling characteristics while proven to perform as well or better than the market standard. The marketing materials for these products will carry the KlearSky logo and description.
MANA introduces the KlearSky Technology brand as a means of indicating formulations that crop consultants, retailers, distributors and growers can rely on for high performance, a reduced impact on the environment and less restrictive handling requirements.
Paradigm touts an advanced formulation for fast-acting insect control at performance levels equal to conventional lambda-cyhalothrin products.
Vulcan is the first advanced chlorpyrifos products of its kind - allowing excellent speed of insect knockdown at the same high levels of control found in the market standard.
ABBA Ultra minimizes environmental concerns by reducing impact on air quality, and it has twice the concentration of active ingredient so applicators simply use half the rate of standard abamectin formulations.
MANA Crop Protection will be adding Bumper ES fungicide and Fanfare ES insecticide to its KlearSky Technology portfolio for the 2013 season.
