Syngenta in North America announced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted registration approval for Lexar EZ and Lumax EZ herbicides. Powered by Callisto Plant Technology, these products will deliver broad-spectrum residual weed control and application flexibility that will help U.S. farmers grow more corn.

Lexar EZ and Lumax EZ are registered for use in field corn, seed corn, sweet corn, yellow popcorn and grain sorghum. Refer to the product label for application instructions.

“Lexar EZ and Lumax EZ demonstrate the same performance, residual control, application flexibility and crop safety as market-leading Lexar and Lumax herbicides, but with the added benefit of improved handling,” said Gordon Vail, technical asset lead, Syngenta. “Based on the same patented capsule-suspension formulation technology as Halex GT herbicide, these extensively tested formulations are designed to minimize the effects of overwintering and maximize compatibility with many nitrogen fertilizers and other critical tank-mix partners.”

Each containing three active ingredients, Lexar EZ and Lumax EZ are highly effective tools to help farmers manage weeds becoming harder to control with glyphosate alone.

“This combination provides multiple modes of action for more effective residual control than competitive corn herbicides on tough grasses and small-seeded broadleaf weeds such as waterhemp, lambsquarters and foxtails,” said John Foresman, asset lead, Syngenta. “Both are targeted for weed biotypes like waterhemp that are tolerant or resistant to glyphosate, ALS-inhibiting, PPO and triazine herbicides.”

Lexar EZ and Lumax EZ feature unmatched application flexibility and excellent crop safety, even in adverse weather conditions. Each can be applied at a full rate pre-emergence, at a foundation rate followed by Halex GT or tank mixed with glyphosate (Touchdown or Roundup brand herbicides) as a post-emergence application, providing an application window that ranges from 14 days pre-plant up to 12-inch corn.

“The development of Lexar EZ and Lumax EZ is a direct result of our $2.8 million per day investment in research and development,” added Vail. “We’re committed to providing enhanced technology solutions to meet the needs of growers and our channel partners.
