FMC Agricultural Solutions announced a new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) crop registration of its Anthem SE herbicide for use on soybeans.
Anthem herbicide now offers both corn and soybean growers control of broadleaf weeds and grasses with flexible application timing up to 45 days preplant, preemergence and early postemergence.
"Anthem has proven its worth to corn growers as a season-to-season resistance control partner. We're now adding one-tank, crop-to-crop flexibility, said Aaron Locker, FMC Agricultural Solutions North America marketing director. "Resistance issues waterhemp, pigweed, foxtails don't end at the fence line and now, neither does your protection with Anthem herbicide.
Introduced for corn in fall of 2012, Anthem herbicide provides control of broadleaf weeds and grasses. Now available for soybeans, Anthem offers growers a soybean application window up to 45 days preplant through V3 with four- to eight-weeks of residual activity.
Applied in-season, growers can easily combine the concentrated liquid formulation of Anthem with tank mixes of companion herbicides with effective rates as low as four to 11 ounces per acre.
In research trials, Anthem provided soybean growers excellent weed control and crop safety, resulting in a significant yield advantage. With one-tank flexibility for corn and soybeans, growers can now take advantage of the benefits of Anthem directly from one field to the next, without cleaning the sprayer and switching to a different product.
"Improved crop protection, seasonal flexibility and ease of use can come in a single product, said Locker. "Growers have seen Anthem prevent emergence of broadleaf weeds and grass, including glyphosate-resistant weeds in spring, and seen its residual action continuing to offer control through row closure.
