As a corn farmer, it’s very likely you have your own unique way of running your farm. And, just as no two corn farmers are the same, no two corn weed control programs are exactly the same. Knowing this, Corteva Agriscience understands how important it is to offer flexible corn herbicides that can fit a wide variety of farming operations.
With that in mind, we are excited to announce the name of our latest corn herbicide solution: Resicore® XL herbicide . This innovative preplant, pre- and postemergence option is planned for 2022, upon U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration. Resicore XL is a premium solution, which can be applied on corn greater than 11-inches tall to control more than 75 of the toughest broadleaf and grass weeds in your fields.
Corteva has always taken a solution-first approach to weed control, with the aim of keeping farmers like you – and the way you farm – at the forefront. As the weed control landscape evolved dramatically over the last 20 years, the company (previously the Agriculture Division of DowDuPont) launched nine corn herbicide formulations to keep up with customers’ rapidly changing needs.
Two of those formulations were SureStart® II herbicide, a flexible preemergence that allows farmers to start the season clean, and Resicore® herbicide, a powerful solution with extended residual control. According to third-party industry research in 2019 and 2020, Resicore was the most widely used residual corn herbicide. Resicore XL offers the same key benefits as Resicore, with new features like a wider application window, increased crop safety and greater tank-mix capabilities, while still optimizing yield potential.
“We’re excited to continue to bring innovative products to the marketplace by announcing the name of our newest corn herbicide today,” said Brandon Walter, U.S. Product Manager, Corn Herbicides, Corteva Agriscience. “Resicore XL is the next chapter in that innovation story — a game-changing corn herbicide that combines the weed control farmers trust with next-level application flexibility and crop safety.”

Resicore® XL herbicide can fit a wide variety of weed control and agronomic programs, because it can be applied preplant, pre- or post-emergence on corn greater than 11-inches tall, and application rates are customizable. One concern we hear often from customers is that unpredictable weather can wreak havoc on weed control plans. This product offers the flexibility to overcome weather-related setbacks and delays.
Resicore XL gives you power over weeds with three proven modes of action to control more than 75 of the toughest broadleaves and grasses, including resistant varieties like Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, marestail and giant ragweed.
Resicore® XL herbicide is formulated for increased crop safety thanks to an encapsulated acetochlor. The encapsulated acetochlor in Resicore XL causes less crop response on post-emergence corn for healthier plants and greater yield potential.
Another key benefit of Resicore XL is that it features greater tank-mix capability with key micronutrients, such as UAN and Ammonium Thiosulfate. In addition, this herbicide allows farmers the opportunity to customize their weed management with compatible products like atrazine, glyphosate and other corn herbicides.
“Resicore XL offers increased crop safety and the widest application window of any Corteva corn herbicide along with the proven, powerful weed control that customers have come to expect from Resicore” Walter said. “Resicore XL will make an excellent addition to almost any weed control program as a preplant, pre- or post-emergence option to help manage herbicide resistance and optimize yield potential.”
