Syngenta announces new Corn Herbicide

Syngenta has named its new corn herbicide premix Acuron Flexi.

This herbicide has been formulated for long-lasting residual control of difficult weeds and added flexibility. The company anticipates 2016 as the year of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency registration.

Using the latest formulation technology, Acuron Flexi will combine three active ingredients. These include bicyclopyrone and two complementary modes of action to deliver a multi-targeted approach to weed control.

The importance of this is reflected in the fact that weed resistance has expanded and weeds such as giant ragweed, waterhemp and Palmer amaranth have become more difficult to manage.
