Investigations underway following reports of possible damage to sprayer components
24th May 2022
Corteva Agriscience UK is investigating reported complaints of damage on some sprayer components when the tank mix being applied includes products containing Inatreq active. The main area of concern appears to be centred around diaphragms and nozzle O-rings.
Corteva says it is too early to speculate on the outcome of this investigation, and it is important to note that the company has not experienced any prior complaints during the previous seasons of use.
When asked for comment, Corteva responded: “We are confident in the safety and efficacy of Inatreq active-containing products when used according to label instructions.”
Corteva has issued technical advice that reinforces higher water volumes, especially when tank mixing, and the need to follow best practices for sprayers, such as frequently flushing spray lines with clean water.
