Dow AgroSciences Receives EPA Registration for Corn Herbicide

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved the registration of Resicore herbicide, which will be available to growers for the 2016 growing season. Resicore is a premix herbicide with three active ingredients and three modes of action.

Resicore can be applied preplant to early postemergence and can be used with conventional, reduced-till, or no-till corn systems. It is tank mix-compatible with atrazine, glyphosate, and other corn herbicides to provide flexibility and customization. The three active ingredients — acetochlor, mesotrione, and clopyralid — provide three nonglyphosate and nonatrazine modes of action to help growers manage herbicide resistance.

“Resicore is different from other premixes on the market particularly because it has three active ingredients growers have never seen together before in a single product,” says Luke Peters, corn herbicides product manager, Dow AgroSciences. “The novel formulation has the right balance of active ingredients to offer superior weed control deep into the growing season.”

“The best time to control weeds is before they are out of the ground,” says Jonathan Huff, market development specialist, Dow AgroSciences. “We want to reduce as much early-season weed competition we can by using a preemergence, residual herbicide so our crops are not competing with yield-robbing weeds.”

Resicore has been proven to control tough weeds, including waterhemp, giant ragweed, Palmer amaranth, morningglory, and marestail, according to the company release. In addition, Resicore controls more than 70 other weed species.

Growers rely on multiple modes of action and residual control they can trust. Resicore offers that power they need in a single product, says Peters.
