Even the best plans can be thwarted by bad weather. Wet and cold weather can make the corn herbicide application window smaller, and in many cases growers can completely miss it if the crop exceeds the planned herbicide’s application window.

It’s important to have a herbicide that delivers flexibility and crop safety* regardless of weather conditions. The application flexibility Acuron® corn herbicide provides allows growers to apply their herbicide even with bad weather conditions. Acuron delivers broad-spectrum control of 70 plus tough broadleaf weeds and grasses, and can be applied 28 days pre-plant up to 12-inch corn.

Acuron Flexi corn herbicide provides additional flexibility, particularly in areas where atrazine use is limited. By allowing for application from 28 days pre-plant up to 30-inch corn, Acuron Flexi provides the flexibility growers need to best suit their fields and control tough weeds.

It’s important to be prepared for the unexpected. By selecting a herbicide with application flexibility, growers can worry less about adverse weather conditions and focus on growing more corn.
