DuPont Crop Protection Offers Two New Cereal Herbicides
Two new herbicides for broadleaf control in cereal crops will be offered by DuPont Crop Protection for the 2017 growing season. Sentrallas and Travallas have received registration from the EPA, the company announced.
Sentrallas and Travallas each contain two modes of action to target broadleaf weeds such as kochia (including ALS-resistant), catchweed bedstraw, Russian thistle, pigweed species, lambsquarters, and mustard species in the Northern Plains. Growers in the Southern Plains can use Sentrallas to control kochia, henbit, wild buckwheat, and mustard species, and to manage marestail. The flexible application window of both herbicides allows you to apply any time between the two-leaf stage and the flag-leaf stage so you can respond to weather and weed conditions. Management of marestail requires adding MCPA or 2,4-D to the tank mix.
Sentrallas has two active ingredients (thifensulfuron-methyl and fluroxypyr) and good crop rotation flexibility. It is registered for use on spring, durum, and winter wheat, plus barley and oats. Travallas contains three active ingredients (the previous two plus metsulfuron-methyl) for broad-spectrum broadleaf weed control on nonrotational acres. It is registered for use on spring, durum, and winter wheat, plus barley. Both products are new mixes but are not new chemistries, says Dallas Peterson, weed specialist at Kansas State University.
You should review product labels for application rates and recropping intervals to determine the best herbicide programs for your crop-protection needs. Both products are included in DuPont’s TruChoice rewards program, according to James Hay, business director, North America, DuPont Crop Protection.
