Maximize ROI Potential with a Quality Corn Herbicide

Cleaner fields with less weed competition leave corn free to reach its maximum yield and ROI potential. Photos taken August 13, 2019, in Slater, IA.

Tough weeds steal vital resources from corn, negatively impacting yield potential and return on investment. But better weed control is about more than just not losing money; a quality corn herbicide program can help you be more profitable, too. That’s because better herbicide performance means cleaner fields, healthier corn plants, more bushels and increased revenue potential.

When you look at the numbers, the difference a quality herbicide can make is clear, and that’s why we recommend Acuron® corn herbicide. When applied preemergence and at a full label rate, Acuron outyielded competitors by 5-15 bushels per acre in replicated trials.* And those extra bushels can quickly add up. At the current corn commodity price of roughly $6.05 per bushel, 5-15 extra bushels an acre could potentially deliver $15,000-45,000+ for every 500 acres.
