Firestone Farm Tires, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC announced the addition of Firestone- branded agricultural rubber tracks to the Firestone Farm Tires product portfolio. The introduction of tracks solidifies the company’s commitment to the North American farmer.
New Firestone tracks for high-horsepower tracked tractors deliver performance and durability. Notable features of Firestone agricultural rubber tracks include: vulcanized lugs made of wear-resistant rubber compound for added durability; high-performance steel cables offering a precise balance of tensile strength and flexibility for exceptional durability; cut-resistant rubber compounds vulcanized as one piece with a seamless molded radius which enables the tread bars to remain steadfast to the rubber track.
Firestone tracks are available in three design options: All Traction Class 4 provides excellent ride comfort and high traction with more ground contact points; All Traction Class 5 provides excellent ride comfort and high traction with more ground contact area; and All Traction Class 6 provides better mud release and is suitable for softer soil conditions.

Syngenta Receives Fungicide Registration
Syngenta recently announced that its newest succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor (SDHI) fungicide – Solatenol – has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is now available in four product offerings, pending individual state registrations.
Solatenol fungicide offers U.S. growers of a dozen major crops, including peanuts, an outstanding new option for disease control through several features.
In peanuts, Elatus fungicide, a combination of Solatenol fungicide and azoxystrobin, provides peanut growers with the disease control they need to maximize yield potential and their return on investment. Elatus provides application flexibility and reliable, long-lasting residual control of yield-robbing peanut diseases, such as Southern stem rot (white mold), leaf spot, limb rot and rust.
