The new herbicide Resicore is in its first season on corn crops in the Midwest and is living up to the hope of farmers looking for a strong weed control product with extended residual control and multiple modes of action.
Randy Pauli, a Northern Illinois agriculture retailer, says Resicore is especially impressive on waterhemp that is known for breaking through herbicides early in the growing season. Resicore prevented waterhemp from appearing for six weeks.
“I wanted a product that would be very strong to keep our populations low knowing that we have heavy weed infestations on these farms,” Pauli said, referring specifically to a recent rise of herbicide-resistant waterhemp. “[Resicore] is a state-of-the-art chemistry that actually gives us the longest residual against waterhemp, and that’s a prime example in this field.”
Pauli was able to mix the Resicore with atrazine which helped prevent not only waterhemp but also giant ragweed and marestail.
Resicore also has residual control, which reduces the possibility the product will spread before the crop’s canopy closure.
“It’s really impressive and it’s great to not have to go back and rescue anything,” Lyndsie Kaehler, Dow AgroSciences corn herbicides product manager, said. “Resicore is a novel, easy-to-use formulation of three leading active ingredients with three non-glyphosate and non-atrazine modes of action to control more than 70 broadleaf weeds and grasses.”
