DuPont wheat herbicide earns EPA registration

Agriculture.com Staff 01/08/2008 @ 8:38am

DuPont has received registration approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for Agility SG herbicide, a new product designed to provide wheat growers broad spectrum weed control, including ALS resistant species.

Agility features four active ingredients and two modes of action in a single formulation to offer convenient, broad spectrum control without the hassles of mixing multiple products, company officials say.

Agility SG controls more than 80 tough broadleaf weeds, including Russian thistle, pigweed and kochia, and ALS-resistant species. Agility SG also is covered by the DuPont Crop Protection Plus wheat program, which provides growers who purchase qualifying herbicides with product cost replacement if their crop is destroyed by drought, flood, frost/freeze, fire or hail.
