Customized wheat solution with new GP Herbicide

Dec. 1, 2015, Saskatoon, SK - DuPont PrecisionPac herbicides, the revolutionary way to dispense high-performing, customized herbicide blends, now offers a completely customized wheat solution with its new GP Herbicide.

GP Herbicide brings powerful grass control to the strong broadleaf performance that PrecisionPac is already known for, delivering exceptional performance on the toughest grassy weeds, including Group 1 resistant wild oats.

"GP Herbicide is a major development for DuPont Crop Protection, our retail partners, and our customers," says Rob McClinton, PrecisionPac product manager with DuPont Crop Protection. "With new GP Herbicide in our PrecisionPac lineup, we are now able to offer our growers a completely customized weed control solution for spring and durum wheat."

GP Herbicide contains Pyroxsulam, a premium Group 2 graminicide in Western Canada. GP Herbicide can be tank-mixed with PP-23235, PP-2525, PP-31155, or PP-3317 for outstanding one-pass control of the most challenging grass and broadleaf weeds, such as Japanese brome, wild oat, narrow-leaved hawk's beard and volunteer canola.

The easy customization of PrecisionPac products for sprayer tank and field size ensures the precise amount of product is dispensed for an exact number of acres. It's easy to use, with each grower bag containing a full wheat solution labeled for the specific field, in addition to reducing cost and waste for the customer.

"With the huge popularity of our broadleaf offerings we wanted to give our retailers and growers a tool to control grassy weeds as well. We expect that the addition of this new herbicide will add to the popularity and efficiency of the PrecisionPac lineup," says McClinton.
