Certis are celebrating 15 years as an extensive crop protection business covering arable crops, potatoes, fruit, vegetables and ornamentals. Cereals 2016 is your chance to come and meet the team, and discuss the next 15 years.
Certis’ new marketing manager Nathan Whitehouse, believes this is an exciting time for the company. “It’s great to have joined Certis when they are celebrating such a milestone as a successful and established company.
“To have joined at a time when the company is growing from strength to strength provides a number of opportunities, in the areas of both conventional chemistry and biologicals, to help meet the demands and challenges facing the agricultural sector,” says Mr Whitehouse.
Blackgrass is just one of the major challenges facing growers. “With no new active substances anticipated anytime soon, growers are continually looking at how they can use the range of tools available to keep on top of this tenacious weed to maintain healthy yields and profitable crops.
“The last 15 years of investment have identified new opportunities for Certis to help growers. Two of which are the newly launched straight flufenacet based products, Sunfire and System 50, providing greater flexibility to tackle the ongoing blackgrass challenge,” he says.
“A familiar active substance in co-formulated products, flufenacet is now available for the first time as a straight product. In extensive trial programmes, it’s performed extremely well, showing great efficacy and partner flexibility.
“Growers can come and talk to our BASIS qualified team at Cereals about their blackgrass issues and how these exciting flufenacet products can be integrated into their control programmes.
“This is just one example of how Certis are continually developing and introducing vital products for a sustainable, long-term future as a result of the extensive investments we continue to make,” says Mr Whitehouse.
The Certis stand, number 337, is located just off the main thoroughfare, on route to the Sprays and Sprayers arena (on the corner of the Central Avenue).
