Surveil, a new pre-emergence and residual herbicide from Dow AgroSciences, has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use as of 2016.


Surveil contains active ingredients that benefit soybean growers by eliminating the threat of broadleaf weeds.


“This new formulation is the first to offer growers the convenience of having the active ingredients flumioxazin and cloransulam-methyl together in one easy-to-use premix,” said Melissa Olds, who works as a formulation chemist for Dow AgroSciences. “This product was developed so that it would be easy for growers to use. You’ll find Surveil offers excellent handling properties, such as dispersing quickly when added to water.”


Surveil herbicide, when applied from between pre-planting to three days after planting, works before emergence. Using this short rotational interval, growers have the ability to rotate key crops nine months following the application of Surveil.


Dow AgroSciences, now including Surveil, provides a portfolio of soybean herbicides that offer residual control.
