THE 1998 World Cup has made history even before the first ball has been kicked. With only limited numbers of tickets available, prices on the black market are already said to be topping £1800. But you can go for free by winning one of 15 pairs of tickets (plus travel), thanks to Cyanamid Agriculture, one of the official sponsors of the 1998 World Cup.

Just study the text over the next seven weeks. Then answer the questions each week and fill in the coupon in the final week (Apr 24). Then send the coupon to us.

Ecomatic

Cyanamid Agricultures Ecomatic system is designed to help farmers, spray operators and the industry meet new waste packaging regulations, which came into force on Mar 1, 1997. The object of the new legislation is to recover more than half of the EUs total packaging waste by 2001.

Recognisable by its bold yellow 25kg keg, the Ecomatic system is a sealed transfer system that speeds up spraying by delivering 25 litres in less than two minutes. If the user does not want to use all the contents of the keg, its non-returnable valve reseals automatically.

Products supplied in the returnable keg cost the same per litre as those in conventional packaging – the cost of the keg is not picked up by the farmer.

Once the kegs are empty, they are collected on behalf of Cyanamid by the farmers usual distributor and returned to the company for refilling. Products currently available in the Ecomatic kegs are Stomp, Encore, Trump, Meteor, Bullet and Arelon.

The Ecomatic system means that your days of rinsing and disposing of dozens of drums and cases are over. Operator and environmental risks are also reduced, making the whole mixing operation safer and faster.

Cyanamid is running a series of farm roadshows around the UK demonstrating the Ecomatic system and offering a free sign-up period. Farmers interested in coming along can find out more information by ringing (01329-224150).

Stomp

The brand most synonymous with Cyanamid is Stomp, a long-lasting, powerful residual herbicide. Stomp provides high levels of control of a wide range of both grass and broad-leaved weeds.

Since every field situation is different, Stomp can be used at a wide range of dose rates and with a variety of tank-mix partners, providing cost-effective weed control. Even at lower rates, Stomp controls meadow-grass and more than 30 broad-leaved weeds. At higher rates, it controls more demanding weeds including blackgrass and wild oats.

Stomp is commonly mixed with ipu to provide complete contact and residual control of all significant annual weeds in cereals. As ipu is only required for contact activity, only low rates are needed. Stomp is also highly immobile and, therefore, less susceptible to leaching.

Cyanamid Website

Cyanamid Agriculture has recently launched a free, interactive website, providing information on Cyanamid products, latest news, weather, on-line tools (eg, a herbicide rotation planner) and a discussion forum.

Farmers can register by visiting at the address http://www.agricentre.co.uk, or via the Cyanamid banner advert on the FWi news page.
