Soybean growers have a new option for giving crops a strong start to canopy development even when resistant weeds threaten yield and early season productivity.
DuPont Crop Protection has introduced DuPont EverpreX herbicide, which provides extended residual control of ALS-, PPO- and/or glyphosate resistant weeds, including waterhemp, Palmer amaranth and other pigweed species.
“In the battle against resistant weeds, EverpreX is a valuable solution to help safeguard yield potential by minimizing competition for nutrients, moisture and sunlight,” said James Hay, business director, North America, DuPont Crop Protection. “EverpreX is a critical component of effective resistance management strategies, which overlay contact plus residual herbicides to provide season-long control, prevent weed escapes and stop the spread of resistant biotypes.”
EverpreX (pronounced ever-PRE-ex) demonstrates excellent weed control when tank-mixed with glyphosate herbicides, such as DuPont Abundit Edge. When tank mixed with other pre- or postemergence herbicides, EverpreX provides residual control of Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, lambsquarters, nightshade, foxtails and other small-seeded grasses and broadleaf weeds.
Studies have demonstrated that tank mixtures including S-metolachlor deliver more complete, consistent control of many ALS-, PPO- and glyphosate-resistant grass and broadleaf weeds.
Compatible and easily mixed with many other soybean herbicides, EverpreX contains S-metolachlor for residual control via inhibition of shoot- and root-tissue growth soon after weed germination. It has a wide application window with the flexibility to be applied 45 days prior to planting and up to 90 days before harvest.
It can be used as an early pre-plant, pre-plant incorporated, pre-emergence or post-emergence herbicide that provides re-cropping adaptability when rotating from soybeans to other crops.
