Tips for finding the right corn herbicide program

Winter is an opportunity to reflect and make plans for the upcoming season. Since every farm, field and season is different, it’s a challenge to develop weed control programs each year. As you create next year’s plans, here are three key areas to consider.

  1. Attack weeds early and often.
    Give your corn the strongest start possible by layering residual herbicides to control tough weeds. Uncontrolled weeds steal crucial nutrients, sun and water from young corn plants and, ultimately, rob yield. Some of the fiercest weed competition, such as marestail, waterhemp and Palmer amaranth, have long germination periods and spread to more fields each year.

    Start with a preemergence herbicide to control early weed flushes. Then come back with a postemergence residual herbicide to control weed escapes and prevent competition from later-emerging weeds.
  2. Use corn herbicides with ultimate dependability.
    The corn herbicides portfolio of Corteva Agriscience is designed to fit the way you grow corn, so you can spend less time worrying about unwanted, yield-robbing weeds. Our corn herbicides offer dependability and application flexibility to deal with the unexpected. Here is a quick look at how each product can help protect your corn crop:
    • Resicore® herbicide is effective, with versatile application timing and residual control lasting deep into the growing season.
    • SureStart® II herbicide is proven to control weeds when it matters most — during the early developmental stages of corn growth.
    • DuPont™ Realm® Q herbicide is a great postemergence option with multiple modes of action and built-in safener technology that can be applied under diverse weather conditions.
    • Keystone® NXT herbicide is consistent, providing a wide spectrum of weed control, and it only requires ¼ inch of rain to activate.
    • DuPont™ Cinch® ATZ herbicide delivers peace of mind and flexibility through early weed control, especially for farmers needing rotational flexibility.
  3. Take advantage of savings. These corn herbicides are part of the TruChoice® offer.
