New Corn Herbicide Controls Resistant Weeds
Corn growers can protect their input investments and yield from resistant weeds with the new post-emerge herbicide Armezon from BASF.
January 12, 2012
BASF Crop Protection has added Armezon herbicide to its herbicide portfolio. Armezon helps corn growers maximize their yields by controlling tough, yield-robbing weeds while being safe to all corn types.
A post-emerge herbicide solution for corn, Armezon controls problematic grasses and broadleaf weeds such as common lambsquarters, waterhemp, giant foxtail and crabgrass — including those with resistance to glyphosate, triazines, PPOs, and ALS inhibitors.
“Armezon is definitely tough on weeds,” said John Sabatka, Post Corn Herbicides Product Manager with BASF. “At the same time, it’s also safe to use on all field and specialty corn, regardless of trait – including the most sensitive varieties.”
Armezon also has a wider window of application when compared to most other post-emerge corn herbicides on the market. It is an excellent cross-spectrum tank-mix partner, which makes it particularly helpful for growers who rely on post applications of atrazine or glyphosate to manage tough weeds.
