Granular pesticides can now be handled more safely using Rhône-Poulencs new Surefill chemical transfer system. All contact with the active ingredient is avoided, preventing problems with spillage and dust, says market development manager David James. The strengthened plastic container couples to a valve on the applicator as simply as a light bulb screws into a bayonet socket. Containers deliver 20kg of granules and if part-used remain air-tight so granules remain dry during storage. Ordering Temik (aldicarb) in a Surefill container does not add to cost and packs can be re-turned for re-filling, so avoiding disposal problems.
