New herbicide for western potato growers
Apr. 15, 2013, Mississauga, ON - Western Canadian potato farmers and Canadian processing tomato growers now have a new tool for powerful, flexible weed control and more convenient resistance management. Titus PRO is a new DuPont post-emergent herbicide solution that combines DuPont Prism SG (rimsulfuron) and a 75 percent DF metribuzin into one convenient co-pack.
Packaged in a convenient, easy to use 40 acre case, DuPont Titus PRO delivers multiple modes of action - Group 2 and Group 5 - in one co-pack, providing the industry with a proactive resistance management tool.
According to Ray Janssen, market segment manager-horticulture, DuPont Crop Protection, growers have always appreciated the superior control of annual grasses they've achieved using Prism SG. "Now with the additional power of metribuzin, they'll see enhanced residual control of a far wider range of broadleaf weeds as well."
Titus PRO controls grassy weeds such as barnyard grass, quackgrass and lamb's-quarters, and broadleaf weeds such as cocklebur, common chickweed and post-emergent stinkweed. A full listing of registered uses is available on the product's label.
