Corn growers seeking new ways to eliminate herbicide-resistant weeds and protect yield potential have a new tool to add to their arsenal. Resicore™ herbicide has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration and will be available for the 2016 growing season says Dow Agrosciences’ Luke Peters.
“Resicore has just received federal EPA registration. We expect that Resicore will be available to growers upon state registrations beginning this spring so we should be able to see some Resicore in action in 2016.”
The three active ingredients — acetochlor, mesotrione and clopyralid provide three nonglyphosate and nonatrazine modes of action to help growers manage herbicide resistance by controlling weeds multiple ways.
“Resicore is different from other premixes on the market particularly because it has three active ingredients growers have never seen together before. The novel formulation has the right balance of active ingredients to offer superior weed control deep into the season.”
Some of corn’s toughest enemies include waterhemp, marestail, morningglory, Palmer amaranth and giant ragweed. Peters says Resicore does a nice job across the board of managing these issues.
“Growers face difficult weed control issues today, and they’re looking for the most powerful product they can find. With more weeds able to withstand glyphosate-only applications, growers rely on multiple modes of action and residual control they can trust. Resicore offers that power they need in a single product.”
Growers implementing conventional, reduced- or no-till corn systems can apply Resicore from preplant to early postemergence. It is tank-mix-compatible with atrazine, glyphosate and other corn herbicides, giving growers the flexibility they need to customize their program to current conditions and weed pressure.
