Putting different products in the same box with almost identical cans, cannot be described as a good idea in my book.
Just been emptying the boxes and stacking cans separately for tonight’s spray evening

It's a marketing tool I'm afraid.
When it comes to ag chemicals such marketing is in my opinion very questionable. Is it any wonder that some in society accuse farmers of "drenching land in chemicals". Crop protection is about choosing the right product to apply at the right time not being funneled down a particular route because of such combo pack marketing. I don't expect my garage to only let me buy 30L of petrol unless I also take 3L of screenwash.

They were or all at it about when I left the job, it stinks but you can only teach them to stop by by voting with your wallets.

I’ve got Elatus Plus boxed with Amistar. The Elatus is going on the wheat now and the Amistar will get saved for spring barley. Good value bought together but I agree that the cans could do with being easier to differentiate! As said above, it’s a good way for Syngenta to shift more product …. marketing!
