The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved federal registration for Grasp Xtra and Rebelex rice herbicides, according to Dow AgroSciences. The two new herbicides provide growers with more convenient, broad-spectrum control of grasses and broadleaf weeds, such as sprangletop and barnyardgrass.

"Grasp Xtra and Rebelex round out our rice herbicides portfolio and give growers more control options," said Hub Miller, marketing specialist for Dow AgroSciences. "These products were developed with direct input from rice producers and consultants-they asked for products like this and we were able to deliver them."

Grasp Xtra contains two proven modes of action by combining penoxsulam, the active ingredient in Grasp SC herbicide, and triclopyr. This conveniently packaged product delivers broad-spectrum control targeting tough broadleaf weeds and barnyardgrass.
