Sortan IS for early season weed pressure in corn
By Top Crop Manager
SASKATOON – Western Canadian corn growers now have a new tool to remove early season weed pressure to help maximize yield and profits in corn. DuPont Crop Protection has announced that approval has been granted for registration of DuPont Sortan IS herbicide.
DuPont Sortan IS herbicide will allow growers to control tough, yield robbing weeds, such as volunteer Roundup Ready canola, wild buckwheat, redroot pigweed (including triazine-resistant biotypes), lamb's-quarters, green foxtail, barnyard grass, and quackgrass, to keep corn weed-free to maximize yield and profits.
An additional mode of action to glyphosate, Sortan IS offers application flexibility – it can be applied pre-emergent or post-emergent, and provides extended control throughout the critical weed free period. For optimum weed control, it is recommended that Sortan IS be tank-mixed with glyphosate herbicide at 900 g ai/ha for control of additional weeds.
Sortan IS will be available at local retailers in Western Canada for the 2017 season.
