Capreno is a new post-emergence herbicide for corn from Bayer CropScience. Capreno is primarily available in Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin. It's also available with limited supply in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska and Ohio, and will be available for use in most other states in 2011.

"Growers in these geographies are already familiar with Laudis herbicide, which launched nationally in 2008," said Jeff Springsteen, Bayer CropScience marketing manager for selective corn and soybean herbicides. "This year, we wanted to introduce these growers to a new mode of action that will help them eliminate weed pressure and increase yields."
