Lexar herbicide finds success in first season

Agriculture.com Staff 03/06/2006 @ 8:52am

Lexar, introduced by Syngenta, is a corn herbicide formulated for conventional or glyphosate-tolerant (GT) corn acres in the Central and Southern Corn Belts. It provides season-long weed management in a single pass on most corn acres. The combination of three active ingredients, each with a different mode of action, eliminates weeds early and keeps them out of the field through harvest, which allows each corn hybrid to reach its full yield potential.

Growers who live in areas where ALS-, triazine- or glyphosate-resistant weeds have been a problem value the multiple modes of action in Lexar, which allow it to effectively manage resistant weed biotypes. In addition, using Lexar in GT corn helps break the glyphosate cycle. Its broad-spectrum residual control reduces the stress of making precisely-time glyphosate applications in unpredictable weather conditions.

More than two million acres across the corn belt were treated with Lexar in 2005. Growers saw cleaner fields and yield results in the bin at harvest.

"I used Lexar at its full rate in a one-pass application, and there was no need to go back," says Mike Boy of Washington, Indiana. "Not having to respray saved time and money, and we plan to use it on more acres in 2006."
