ET Herbicide Adds Post Use

ET, a broadleaf herbicide from Nichino America, Inc., is now registered for postemergence use in corn and soybeans.

“ET is especially strong on pigweed, morningglory, chickweed, henbit, lambsquarters, and cutleaf evening primrose, and each of those is a huge problem in the South and are often found in combination,” says Chad Dyer, herbicide product manager for Nichino America. “With ET in the tank, corn and soybean growers can control their toughest broadleaf problems.”

For the best control, Nichino recommends that ET be tank-mixed with glyphosate, 2,4-D, or atrazine in corn. That will increase the spectrum of weed control, and it takes advantage of one of ET’s strengths — its ability to enhance the efficacy of other herbicides.

ET has long been registered for pre-plant burndown. It is now registered for use at planting, post-emergence, and up to when the second leaf collar is visible on a corn plant or the second triplicate in soybeans. The use rate will be three-quarters of an ounce per acre. No adjuvants are needed.

“Some growers in the South like to apply paraquat at planting or before emergence for burndown,” explains Dyer. “Paraquat burns weeds back fast, but doesn’t have any residual effect. By adding ET at that time, growers can delay regrowth of weeds. We really see this as an opportunity for ET.”

ET’s mode of action is different from that of most other corn and soybean herbicides, which is important in avoiding weed resistance and in controlling weeds that might have developed resistance or tolerance to those herbicides, says Dyer. “And the product will be priced at less than $3 an acre. We expect it to be very popular with growers, even in its first year.”
