UPI Introduces New Herbicide Resistance Management Tool
UPI, a global leader in the production of high quality crop protection products, has announced the launch of new TRIPZIN ZC herbicide in the U.S.
TRIPZIN ZC is a unique, patented pre-mix that combines the strength of two powerful active ingredients, metribuzin and pendimethalin. TRIPZIN ZC will provide pre-emergent control of a wide spectrum of broadleaf and annual grass weeds, including Palmer pigweed and other pigweed species, ragweed species, lambsquarters and velvetleaf. Crops on the TRIPZIN ZC label include soybeans, alfalfa, field corn, garbanzo beans, lentils, peas, potatoes and sugarcane. As it is applied prior to crop emergence in soybeans, it is compatible with all herbicide-tolerant trait varieties as well as conventional beans.
“TRIPZIN ZC represents another example of innovation from UPI. The combination of metribuzin and pendimethalin, in one product, gives growers two modes of action and, therefore, a viable resistance management tool to help them protect their crop,” said Chris Bowley, Senior Product Manager. “The formulation is water based, hence has a very low VOC profile and convenient handling characteristics. Trial results over the past 2 years, in multiple regions of the US, have shown that TRIPZIN ZC provides consistent, repeatable control of many of the key weed species that create headaches for growers. We at UPI are delighted to add TRIPZIN ZC to our growing portfolio of high quality crop protection products, designed to help American growers combat the challenges posed by herbicide resistance.”
