More Chemical Options Available For No-Till Corn

Manufacturers continue to evolve and expand their product offerings to control weeds and diseases, and suggest steps to avoid glyphosate resistance.

No-tillers can choose from a number of corn herbicides and fungicides that have become available since the last growing season. The new products for this year, listed by manufacturer, include:

Dow AgroSciences

A new high-load glyphosate herbicide called Glyphomax XRT from Dow AgroSciences is available after the Environmental Protection Agency approved its registration last fall. Dow says this 5.4-pound formulation of glyphosate offers the convenience of more treated acres per gallon at a rate of 1 1/2 pints, or 24 ounces, per acre as compared to 4-pound formulations.

“Glyphomax XRT is a high-performance glyphosate product with the full support and service of Dow AgroSciences,” says Nate Miller, marketing specialist for DowAgroSciences. “While weed control will be the same compared to other leading glyphosate herbicides, we feel growers will come to appreciate the easy-to-measure rate of 1 1/2 pints per acre.”

Glyphomax XRT also contains a new surfactant for ease of handling and convenient use. Approved for use on all Roundup Ready crops, including corn, soybeans, cotton and canola, the product offers non-selective control of more than 100 perennial and annual broadleaf weeds and grasses.

“Bringing this new, high-load glyphosate to the market is part of our commitment to our customers to invest in improved formulations and products,” Miller adds.

Dow offers a full-service policy to purchasers of Glyphomax XRT herbicide. The company also offers a similar surfactant-loaded, 5.4-pound glyphosate herbicide called Durango that does not include a service policy.
