A Section 18 request by South Carolina has been approved by the U.S. EPA for the use of Brake F2 to control glyphosate resistant Palmer amaranth on up to 60,000 acres of cotton. 

In recent years, glyphosate resistant Palmer pigweed has been the dominant weed issue impacting cotton production. Considerable effort has gone into trying to identify new weed management systems. Brake F2 combines fluridone, a new active ingredient for cotton, with fomesafen for improved Palmer pigweed control and resistance management.

Brake F2 is a strong residual herbicide with excellent activity on Palmer pigweed, providing up to 8 to 10 weeks of control depending on local conditions.
