Atticus Crop Protection Offers Three New Corn Herbicides for 2020
Atticus, a crop protection company based in North Carolina that specializes in generic products, has added three Atticus-branded generic corn herbicides to its portfolio for the 2020 growing season.
- StreliuS II herbicide uses the active ingredient S-metolachlor to fight competition from a broad spectrum of early-season grasses and many broadleaf weeds. It promises long-lasting residual control, flexible-use patterns, and application timing for season-long control of problem weeds.
- Cavallo 4 SC features the active ingredient mesotrione to deliver contact and residual control of tough broadleaf weeds, including velvet leaf, cocklebur, pigweed, sunflower, and nightshade. The herbicide is readily taken up by leaves, shoots, or roots, and offers a flexible pre- or postemergence application window. The highly selective HPPD inhibitor mode of action controls resistant weeds to ensure maximum yield potential.
- Inflame 280 SL herbicide uses the active ingredient glufosinate for rapid burndown control. For over-the-top applications in glufosinate-tolerant corn, Inflame offers quick and consistent control of some of the most challenging broadleaf and grass weeds. It has flexible application rates and a unique mode of action, making it an excellent tool in rotational programs.
A product in Atticus’ existing corn portfolio, Stigmata complements the new brands by utilizing clopyralid for in-soil application to control giant and common ragweed, common cocklebur, jimsonweed, and other broadleaf weeds that can be damaging to corn crops.
“As growers endure the uncertainty of future tariff agreements, it is critical to find economical, comprehensive crop protection for corn,” says Mike Henderson, executive vice president, central U.S. crops. “Atticus has navigated the supply chain reality of shortages, plant shutdowns, tariffs, and more to be able to deliver cost-effective agronomic solutions to retail distribution and growers to help protect yields.”
