Helm Agro US, Inc. announces that the California Department of Pesticide Regulations (CDPR) has approved Helmet and Helmet SPC herbicides for use on selected crops in the state.

Helmet and Helmet SPC are the newest additions to Helm Agro US’s metolachlor herbicide portfolio. Both products deliver superior grass and small-seeded broadleaf control with the added benefit of residual activity. One application controls an impressive list of tough-to-manage weeds, including those resistant to glyphosate, PPO and ALS herbicides.

“This registration is important news for California growers with the availability of two economical alternatives of equal performance and quality to market leading metolachlor products,” says Jan Stechmann, president of Helm Agro US.


Helmet Herbicide

Widely used as a pre-emergent treatment for two-pass weed control programs, Helmet is an ideal fit for Roundup Ready, Clearfield and Liberty Link crops. Approved for use in corn, cotton, pod crops, potatoes, safflower and soybeans, Helmet herbicide contains 7.8 pounds of metolachlor plus Benoxacor safener per gallon.  


Helmet SPC Herbicide

As a top-performing grass treatment, Helmet SPC is tank-mix-compatible with fluid fertilizers and a wide variety of broadleaf herbicides to expand control spectrum. Approved for use on cotton, pod crops, potatoes, safflower, soybeans and tomatoes, Helmet SPC contains 8 pounds of metolachlor (with no safener) per gallon.


Helmet and Helmet SPC can be used pre-plant surface-applied, pre-plant incorporated, pre-emergence and post-emergent. Available in easy-to-use emulsifiable concentrate formulations, both products are packaged in 2 × 2.5-gallon cases and 270-gallon totes.
