Syngenta in North America announced that Sequence, Touchdown HiTech and Touchdown Total herbicides received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approval for use on sugarbeets. These label expansions increase weed control options for sugarbeet growers while offering complementary resistance-management control.
Sequence combines the performance of two powerful weed solutions: glyphosate, a knockdown herbicide,and S-metolachlor, a residual herbicide. The combination of these active ingredients offers sugarbeet growers reliable management of a variety of weeds, including common lambsquarters, crabgrass, kochia, nightshade and wheat, which can severely affect yield potential of sugarbeet crops.
