Bayer has introduced a new line of products across a range of application windows and prices points that will help ease the stress of corn farming.
The Wipe Out Weeds (WOW) range will include seven products that Bayer is confident will provide corn farmers with tools to better control weeds while protecting crops and earning profits. A recent USDA report said corn production costs are still higher than the average corn trading values, and research from South Dakota State University concluded that weeds left uncontrolled for just a week can cost a farmer with a 500-acre field up to $42,000 a week in lost revenue.
“Growers need something to help maximize weed control and protect yield and profit,” Jason Manz, selective corn herbicide product manager at Bayer, said. “They now have the ability to Wipe Out Weeds with one comprehensive portfolio, bringing efficiency and simplicity to their decision-making with one supplier. This portfolio includes a full line of products that fit any weed management situation including multiple sites of action, pre- and post- chemistries and best-in-class safeners.”
With these products, Bayer is continuing to provide for the corn farmers who made the company the fastest-growing corn herbicide portfolio on the market.
“Corvus and Balance Flexx, the only herbicide products that use reactivation, DiFlexx DUO and DiFlexx, which bring new safened dicamba to corn, and Liberty, the first non-selective herbicide alternative to glyphosate, are just some of the great features that help growers stay successful,” Jody Wynia, corn marketing manager at Bayer, said. “These products are proven to Wipe Out Weeds.”
