Finding the Best Fit

Consultant Johnathon Morris tailors his rice herbicide recommendation to his growers’ individual production system.

Arkansas consultant Johnathon Morris tailors his herbicide recommendations to his growers’ individual production systems and weed pressure. Here’s where Corteva Agriscience™ rice herbicides fit well: 

  • Loyant® herbicide fits well in row rice production systems to control problem weeds on levees and target resistant sedges. “We target ALS-resistant sedges with Loyant,” Morris says. “We are also using Loyant on every acre of row rice to control pigweed.” 
  • RebelEX® herbicide consistently handles grassy fields with resistant barnyardgrass populations. Morris recommends an application anytime from early postemergence to immediately after flood establishment. 
  • Grasp® SC herbicide performs well when battling post-flood populations of barnyardgrass, hemp sesbania (coffeebean) and northern jointvetch (indigo), also providing an option for barnyardgrass control when there are neighboring cornfields.
