As herbicide resistance continues to spread across the United States, herbicide best management practices are more important than ever. These best practices include proactive weed resistance management and planning to help ensure effective, on-target applications.
Recent estimates show that in 2016, over 100 million acres will be infested with resistant weeds. Failure to control these weeds will result in yield and nutrient loss to weed competition.
With innovative solutions - including more herbicide sites of action than any other crop protection company - technical support and educational tools, BASF is a grower's No. 1 partner for managing weed resistance.
A key solution for corn growers is Status® herbicide.Applied post-emergent, Status controls over 190 broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate, ALS and HPPD resistant weeds.
Status controls larger weeds faster than solo dicamba products and provides proven crop safety and weed control across millions of acres.
How does it do this? Status herbicide is absorbed by the leaves, roots, and shoots, and is translocated to the growing points of sensitive weeds to provide post-emergence and residual control of germinating weeds. The active ingredients dicamba and diflufenzopyr. These two active ingredients provide synergistic interaction for enhanced broadleaf weed control.
Application timing is corn post emergence 4 - 36 inches tall (V2-V10).Status® herbicide is available now - ask your BASF business representative about how you can give your customers piece of mind on their corn crops this year.
