The Power Of The Handbook

Putting the 2012 Handbook on your desk, next to your check out or in your pick-up, is proof that you have done due diligence and have the answers. And in this day and age where the buck stops with you, that is good business practice.

The Handbook is portable, it enhances your expertise, it is fast (faster than an Internet search) and it is the most reliable, unbiased, science-based information you can find.

The Handbook gives you a more detailed and comprehensive look at the products you use or stock. It is not a use guide, it is a product and active ingredient guide.

  •   Learn the many different trade names for the same ingredient.
  •   Know the different formulations available.
  •   Connect trade and common names to active ingredient.
  •   Know how the product works.
  •   Make sure you understand IPM possibilities.
  •   Avoid development of pest resistance by knowing resistance classes.

Don’t get caught short. Be the knowledge leader on innovative products in biocontrols, plant health/stress reduction, seed coatings, premixes, chemigation and reduced risk.

Check And Double Check

The ProListings section includes expanded profiles of the newest insecticides, fungicides and herbicides including premixes.

On the CD version, the appendices section contains terms and definitions as well as addresses of regulatory offices and suppliers.

The Mode of Action/Resistance Management section has been expanded. It alone is worth the price of the Handbook where you can find answers to such questions as what is QoI or what products are included in sterol inhibitors.
