Herbicides protect corn yield potential all season long

February 1, 2016

Farmers across the Midwest faced weed control challenges in 2015 due to challenging weather and weed resistance. No matter how much time and how many resources you used on weed control last year, it’s more than likely weed issues will happen again in 2016.

It might not look identical from state to state, town to town or even field to field, but weed pressure is just about everywhere. With corn continuing to be in high demand, you can’t afford to let weed competition threaten yield potential. That’s why season-long weed management is essential. Knowing that everyone has a unique set of challenges and that weed control can seem complicated, Syngenta offers many herbicide choices that can be tailored to your needs.

Weeds compete for corn’s valuable water and light resources, making early-season weed control important to maximize yield and profit potential. Acuron® corn herbicide defeats tough weeds current products are missing through its powerful combination of four active ingredients and three modes of action. Bicyclopyrone, the newest corn herbicide active ingredient from Syngenta, helps Acuron deliver a step change in weed management with greater consistency of control and broader spectrum control of weeds such as cocklebur, morningglory, ragweed and Russian thistle. Additionally, Lumax® EZ and Lexar® EZ corn herbicides contain three active ingredients and three modes of action and are also excellent choices for pre-emergence weed control in corn.

If you’re seeking total post-emergence weed control and long-lasting residual in glyphosate-tolerant corn, Halex® GT corn herbicide controls grass and broadleaf weeds until crop canopy.

To identify the right herbicides for your fields, speak to your local Syngenta representative.
