The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved the registration of Corteva’s Resicore XL herbicide, according to a Corteva press release.

The new Resicore XL herbicide formulation will be available for use in the 2023 growing season.

Resicore XL herbicide builds on the success and proven weed control corn farmers have come to expect from predecessor Resicore herbicide — the most widely used residual corn herbicide in the United States in 2019 and 2020.

They company says Resicore XL is designed to:

  • Give corn growers power over weeds with three proven modes of action to control more than 75 broadleaves and grasses. The solution is powerful against Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, marestail and giant ragweed, and others.
  • Provide flexibility needed to fit a wide variety of weed control and agronomic programs with the widest application window of any corn herbicide in the Corteva Agriscience portfolio. Resicore XL herbicide can be applied from preemergence through postemergence on corn up to 24 inches tall. Farmers also can customize their application rates for added application flexibility.
  • increase crop safety with an encapsulated acetochlor. The lesser crop response will help farmers achieve maximum yield potential.
  • work with more micronutrients, including urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) and ammonium thiosulfate (ATS). In addition, farmers can customize their weed management with compatible products like atrazine, glyphosate and other corn herbicides.

Resicore XL is part of Corteva Agriscience’s portfolio of crop protection solutions designed to address customer needs.
