MIDAS, a broad-spectrum soil fumigant that controls a broad range of soil-borne diseases, nematodes, weed seeds and insects that threaten high-value crops, has been given the green light for commercial use in 29 states.
“The growers who have used MIDAS are seeing positive results in efficacy and yields,” says Mike Allan, Global Product Manager for MIDAS. “We are pleased that state officials have allowed more growers to experience these benefits.”
In recent studies conducted by the University of Georgia, researchers pitted Midas, DMDS and Telone II against methyl bromide and found MIDAS to be the most effective replacement.
“These results are the same as what we have been seeing with MIDAS in our expanded EUP studies,” Allan says. “And with full commercial registration for MIDAS in many states, growers finally have a new fumigant tool that provides a good foundation for their crops.”
Midas can be purchased in Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.
