HELM Agro US, Inc. has announced that Reviton herbicide has received federal registration from the U.S. EPA.
Reviton is a PPO-inhibitor herbicide with a novel active ingredient called Tergeo. It is a non-selective herbicide for the preplant burndown and desiccation segments in field corn, cotton, soybeans, and wheat.
In more than 700 North American product development trials and regulatory studies, Reviton has demonstrated extremely promising performance ratings in burndown control for more than 50 broadleaf and grass weeds, including ALS, triazine, and glyphosate-resistant species.
Additional characteristics of the new herbicide include an ultra-low use rate, tank mix compatibility, crop rotational flexibility and expanded use as a desiccant for cotton. The new product is also fast-acting with herbicidal effects occurring within 24 hours after application.
