AMVAC releases two corn herbicides for 2021
AMVAC, an American Vanguard company, has announced two new herbicide products for corn available for the 2021 growing season. They include:
- Impact Core. This postemergence corn herbicide provides residual weed control of emerged annual grass and broadleaf weeds, including several herbicide-resistant weeds, say AMVAC officials.
- Sinate. This herbicide controls herbicide-resistant and important driver weeds in LibertyLink corn with crop safety attributes, say AMVAC officials.
“Impact Core delivers postemergence control of the toughest weeds and grasses in corn with the active ingredient found in Impact herbicide (topramezone, Group 27), along with an industry-leading level of acetochlor (Group 15) for extended residual control,” said Nathaniel Quinn, AMVAC marketing manager for corn, soybeans, and sugar beets, in a company news release. “Impact Core provides growers the flexibility of use across a wide range of field conditions to achieve needed control in their corn.”
Sinate is the first herbicide of its kind to combine another effective mode of action (topramezone, Group 27) with glufosinate (Group 10) for postemergence weed control in LibertyLink corn, say AMVAC officials.
“Sinate provides a needed one-two punch of the active ingredient found in Impact herbicide plus glufosinate on herbicide-resistant weeds like waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, and giant ragweed in LibertyLink corn,” Quinn said.
