Dow AgroSciences announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has accepted label registration of its new high-load glyphosate called Durango DMA herbicide.



Durango DMA features a third-generation glyphosate salt, a patented technology developed by Dow AgroSciences. This third-generation technology delivers control of numerous grasses and broadleaf weeds in a high-load, easy-to-use formulation.



"Durango DMA is the latest innovation in glyphosate technology," says Nate Miller, marketing specialist for Dow AgroSciences. "It is another example of our company's commitment to continuous improvement in glyphosate formulations to provide growers with the tools they need to achieve maximum yields and profitability."



Dave Ruen, product technology specialist for Dow AgroSciences, says the DMA salt offers many advantages, particularly when it comes to handling and tank-mixing.



"Durango DMA, with the third-generation glyphosate salt, is tank-mix compatible with fungicides, insecticides and herbicides, particularly with phenoxy herbicides like 2,4-D," Ruen says. "Its low-viscosity, low-foam formulation makes Durango DMA easier to handle."



Durango DMA herbicide offers control of more than 100 broadleaf weeds and grasses in a high-load formulation that treats more acres per gallon with fewer reloads. It is approved for use on all Roundup Ready crops.



Dow AgroSciences also is offering a high-load, DMA glyphosate called Duramax herbicide that includes a product performance service policy.



Miller says new Durango DMA is part of an innovative Technology for Traits portfolio offered by Dow AgroSciences that is specifically designed for superior weed control in Roundup Ready crops, including control of glyphosate-tolerant and resistant weeds.



For example, Miller recommends using Durango DMA as part of a planned two-pass spray program in Roundup Ready corn that begins with a soil-applied, pre-emergence application of SureStart herbicide.



In Roundup Ready soybeans, producers should consider starting their weed control program with a soil-applied application of Sonic herbicide followed by a post application of Durango DMA.



The performance of Durango DMA is supported by Dow AgroSciences.



Durango DMA herbicide also is part of the company's Grower Rewards program, whereby producers can earn cash rebates when they purchase seeds, traits and ag chem products from the broad product line offered by Dow AgroSciences, a technology leader committed to research that brings improved crop protection solutions to American farmers.
