Herbicide Allows Crop Rotation Flexibility
DuPont's Resolve SG herbicide has received an expanded label for greater cropping flexibility.
May 24, 2010
DuPont Resolve SG herbicide has received federal registration for a label expansion that will enable growers to take advantage of additional crop rotation flexibility to cotton and STS soybeans. The expanded label also will allow Resolve SG to be tank-mixed with glyphosate and 2,4-D or dicamba for improved, longer-lasting burndown activity and control of many grasses and broadleaf weeds through crop emergence.
“Growers in southern states will see significant benefits from the improved burndown performance and enhanced recropping options available with Resolve SG," says John Chrosniak, regional director, North America – DuPont Crop Protection. "This is one more step in the ongoing DuPont commitment to finding new ways to address the need for effective, flexible weed-control answers that help growers protect their input investments and enhance long-term profitability.”
The new label allows growers to apply Resolve SG (1.0 ounce per acre) to corn from preplant through preemergence or as a fallow treatment, then plant cotton or STS soybeans 30 days later. In corn, Resolve SG can be applied alone or tank-mixed with glyphosate or atrazine at planting.
The longer-lasting control provided by Resolve SG will help control winter annuals that can harbor early-season insects and reduce competition for moisture caused by problem weeds such as henbit, chickweed, and annual bluegrass. It also will help keep fields clean through crop emergence, giving growers more options when choosing the most appropriate timing for a postemergence herbicide application; and may allow them to reduce time, labor, and fuel needed to control weeds in season.
