Bayer Cropsience has notified CCM that due to production issues resulting from an incident last year at the processing plant in Germany, Admire Pro will not be available in 2023. Admire Pro was the most impacted of their products due to the timing of production and the high demand of product. It was a Bayer specific issue and did not impact other imidacloprid manufacturers.
Bayer is expecting full availability of the product beginning again in 2024. CCM recommends growers contact their distributors about the availability of imidacloprid from all suppliers and to consult with your PCA’s to develop alternatives considering this announcement from Bayer. For further information, please contact your local Bayer representative.
