Soybean farmers now have a new solution to help control weeds in 2021: Kyber™ herbicide. The new preemergence, soybean residual from Corteva Agriscience has three effective modes of action (MOA), including a Group 15 active ingredient.
Corteva knows your customers are constantly seeking new options to fight against troublesome weeds like waterhemp, Palmer amaranth and common ragweed. They’ve been particularly vocal about wanting chemistries that include a Group 15 active ingredient to combat herbicide-resistant weeds. As a preemergence herbicide, Kyber is an ideal addition to a program approach for weed control.
Kyber as Part of a Program Approach
A program approach means applying burndown, preemergence and postemergence herbicides with multiple modes of action and long residual protection. This kind of weed control program is key to controlling resistant weeds throughout the season and to preventing new herbicide resistance from developing.
Kyber is a strong preemergence herbicide. Here’s how it fits into a program approach: It comes in a liquid premix and contains modes of action from groups 5 and 14, in addition to Group 15. What makes Kyber special is that each mode of action in it is effective against resistant weeds. Together, they provide a comprehensive preemergence solution.
Kyber also has extensive residual activity to keep fighting resistant weeds like waterhemp, Palmer amaranth and common ragweed long after application. The residual lasts four to six weeks, even going beyond six weeks in the right conditions. This creates a wide window for a postemergence application, creating flexibility if there are poor weather conditions or other delays. By controlling weeds early, young soybeans won’t have to compete for nutrients and sunlight. This allows for maximum yield potential.
Kyber™ herbicide will also be a great fit for growers planting Enlist E3® soybeans. The new solution will serve as a strong preemergence and can be followed by a planned postemergence application of Enlist Duo® herbicide or a tank mix featuring Enlist One® herbicide.
Kyber Enhances Field Management
Soybean farmers will be able to enhance their field management with Kyber as part of their weed control program. Using several herbicide groups prevents weeds from becoming resistant to one specific mode of action in the future. The three effective modes of action and extensive residual activity in the chemistry will help do that.
By working to prevent new resistance from developing, you are setting your customers up to maximize yield not just for one season but also in the long term. Kyber will help set your growers up for future success, because there’s clean and then there’s Kyber clean.
This is a great opportunity for you to be able to sell a premium herbicide with a Group 15 MOA that comes with the excellent customer service Corteva is known for. To learn more about Kyber, talk with your Corteva Agriscience territory manager.
