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. Additionally, the dual mode of action in each herbicide supplies producers with less product mixing and fewer products to handle.

"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."
