Syngenta has received confirmation from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that Fusilade DX herbicide has been cleared for tank mixing with both XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology and Engenia herbicides. Fusilade DX will be available for use on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans, providing growers with more options for weed management plans this growing season.
Fusilade DX controls volunteer corn, one of the most common weed escapes in soybeans. Research conducted by Syngenta in Waterloo, Neb. found that when it comes to yield loss, volunteer corn is more competitive than giant ragweed, velvetleaf and pigweed.
“The ability to tank mix this herbicide with dicamba expands the options for growers to manage a wider variety of weeds,” said John Appel, herbicide product lead at Syngenta.
Fusilade DX offers post-emergence weed control for soybeans in all tillage situations. In addition to XtendiMax and Engenia, Fusilade DX readily tank mixes with a variety of other broadleaf herbicides.
Fusilade DX, along with all of the other recently cleared Syngenta herbicide tank mixes, has been tested according to EPA approved protocol and the results are certified in accordance to the terms and conditions of registration for XtendiMax and Engenia.
Syngenta herbicides cleared for tank mixing with XtendiMax and Engenia may be used only once listed on the following websites, which will happen within 90 days of EPA clearance: www.XtendiMaxApplicationRequirements.com and www.EngeniaTankMix.com. Syngenta does not recommend using any dicamba herbicide tank mixes until they are posted on these websites.
