Corteva Agriscience announced on June 5 the launch of Resicore REV herbicide, which will offer premier pre- and postemergence corn weed control. With a powerful combination of three proven active ingredients, plus superior handling, outstanding flexibility and enhanced crop safety, this new premix formulation will put the brakes on more than 75 of the toughest broadleaf and grass weeds while helping farmers rev up corn yield potential. 

Revved up benefits of Resicore REV herbicide include:

  • High-powered weed control. Resicore REV herbicide will be the ideal foundation for any premier corn weed-control program with three proven modes of action, plus up to eight weeks of residual activity, to control more than 75 of the toughest broadleaves and grasses. The solution is powerful against even the most resistant weed varieties, including Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, marestail and giant ragweed.
  • Pumped-up flexibility. Resicore REV herbicide has the flexibility to fit nearly any weed-control or agronomic program. The new formulation can be applied preplant, preemergence or postemergence on corn up to 24 inches tall – and it allows farmers to customize their application rates to suit their needs. Resicore REV herbicide can be used on traited corn and conventional corn, as well as on reduced- and no-till acres.
  • Supercharged tankmix compatibility. Resicore REV herbicide is compatible with a wide variety of tank-mix partners, including micronutrients, such as UAN and ammonium thiosulfate (ATS), and other corn herbicides, such as atrazine and glyphosate. This supercharged mixing and handling will allow corn farmers more options to tailor their weed control programs to better fit their acres.
  • Boosted crop safety. Resicore REV herbicide is formulated for increased crop safety with an encapsulated acetochlor. The boosted crop safety builds off the strong foundation of Resicore® herbicide for healthier corn throughout the growing season, helping farmers achieve maximum yield potential.

“Resicore REV herbicide will not only help corn farmers overcome their weed control challenges for one season but also will help set them up for better field management down the road,” Corteva Corn Herbicides Product Manager Nick Burke said. “By providing premier efficacy and the flexibility to work across a multitude of management programs, Resicore REV herbicide will bring farmers the confidence of knowing they’re helping sustain the longevity of the weed control tools and technologies they currently rely on.”

Resicore REV herbicide will be available for growers to include in their 2025 weed control plans.
