Maverick Corn Herbicide Earns EPA Registration for Broad Spectrum Weed Management
Valent U.S.A. has received EPA registration for Maverick Corn Herbicide, a powerful new tool for corn farmers in their fight against resistant weeds. Maverick equips growers with three effective modes of action for long-lasting, broad-spectrum control of problematic weeds, including waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, marestail and annual grasses, as well as application flexibility from preplant up to 18-inch corn, low use rates for easy in-field handling and mixing, and excellent compatibility with atrazine.
“Maverick provides use options that increase operational efficiencies and in-field performance,” says Erick Garcia, Maverick brand manager for Valent U.S.A. “Not only do the three modes of action make it a broad spectrum, long-lasting solution, Maverick also provides growers the operational flexibility they need to make the most of their weed management program.”
Combining three different modes of action (clopyralid, a Group 4 – Plant-Growth Inhibitors, mesotrione, a Group 27- HPPD Inhibitors, and pyroxasulfone, a Group 15 – Very-Long-Chain Fatty Acid (VLCFA) Inhibitors), makes Maverick an excellent choice for herbicide resistance management programs.
Maverick will be available later this year, pending state registrations.
