Monsanto Company has added TripleFLEX, an acetochlor premix formulation for pre-emerge and post-emerge use in corn to its corn herbicide portfolio. The product will be available for the 2011 crop season and will broaden the company's weed management portfolio.
"The ability to offer TripleFLEX is a positive step in our continued efforts to provide farmers with the choices to ensure multiple modes of action when it comes to weed management," said Matt Helms, Monsanto Crop Protection marketing lead. "Our goal is to bring simplicity to weed control, and TripleFLEX will be an excellent addition to a portfolio that is designed to do just that. We see TripleFLEX providing growers the flexibility that fits directly into a Roundup Ready Corn system."
