Stinger HL is New in 2021 (04/29/21)


Corteva Agriscience is introducing a ‘higher load’ formulation of clopyralid in corn, cereal crops, canola, and sugarbeet in North Dakota and Minnesota in 2021. Stinger HL is a 5 lb gallon formulation compared to 3 lb gallon with Stinger. Producers may expect to find both Stinger and Stinger HL in their markets in 2021 as retailers’ transition from the old to new formulations.
