The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has granted DuPont federal registration approval for Pastora, a new herbicide that provides selective control of problem broadleaf and grass weeds with no grazing restrictions.


Pastora provides post-emergence control of field sandbur and johnsongrass, which reduce quality and profitability of commercial hay production in Bermuda grass pastures and hay meadows. Pastora also delivers long-lasting post-emergence control of broadleaf weeds, including common broomweed, buttercup and musk thistle. In field trials, Pastora controlled more than 25 grass weeds and 100 broadleaf weeds, according to DuPont.
