INDIANAPOLIS, IN. — Today, Corteva Agriscience announces four new crop protection products that will meet a wide range of farmer needs, from powerful weed control to cutting-edge nutrient management. The new solutions include three herbicides and a biological, and will protect a variety of crops, including corn, soybeans and cereals.
Here is a look at the four new products from Corteva:
— Enversa™ herbicide, which is currently pending registration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is a residual soybean solution that will control the toughest grass and broadleaf weeds, including waterhemp and Palmer amaranth, while providing excellent crop safety. This crop safety comes from the proprietary encapsulated acetochlor, which will drive to the soil, creating a residual barrier. Enversa herbicide will be the preferred residual tank-mix partner of choice for Enlist One® herbicide for Enlist E3® soybeans. In addition to soybeans, Enversa herbicide will be labeled for multiple other crops including cotton, corn and sorghum. Product availability is expected in 2024.
— Tolvera™ herbicide, which is currently pending registration with the EPA, is a cereal solution that will offer two modes of action, including an active ingredient new to the cereals market. Tolvera herbicide will control troublesome weeds like kochia, Russian thistle, waterhemp, green and yellow foxtail, and lambsquarters. In addition, Tolvera herbicide will afford growers rotational flexibility with nine-month plant-back to major crops, including lentils, peas, potatoes and canola. Tolvera herbicide will be available upon obtaining EPA registration, which is anticipated before the 2024 growing season.
— Utrisha™ P is a biological that helps farmers to increase the return on their phosphorus fertilizer investment by improving below-ground phosphorus availability. Once applied, Utrisha P colonizes the crop root zone and helps increase phosphorus access and reach throughout the growing season. Utrisha P complements traditional phosphorus fertilizer and works with a wide variety of crops, including row crops such as corn, soybeans and wheat, and specialty crops such as potatoes, tomatoes and strawberries. Utrisha P is available in limited supply for the 2023 growing season and will be more widely available for 2024.
— Kyro™ herbicide is a postemergence corn solution that is the first product on the market to combine acetochlor, topramezone and clopyralid into one premix. Kyro herbicide can be applied on corn up to 24 inches tall and controls more than 65 of the most difficult grass and broadleaf weeds. Kyro herbicide is available in limited supply for the 2023 growing season and will be more widely available for 2024.
“At Corteva, we like to say, ‘When farmers succeed, everyone wins.’ It’s our job to bring farmers the tools they need to succeed. These four solutions can help pave the way for their successes – and wins in future growing seasons,” said Aaron Smith, U.S. product manager, soybean herbicides, Corteva Agriscience. “Enversa herbicide is a new, proprietary formulation a decade in the making. Corteva scientists worked tirelessly to develop our encapsulation that is unique in the market. The herbicide will drive to the soil surface, providing several weeks’ residual weed control and minimal crop response.”
“When it comes to corn weed control, Kyro herbicide will offer farmers three modes of action in one convenient premix. This is an innovative solution to help control glyphosate- and ALS-resistant weeds — and to help prevent future resistance from developing,” said Kelly White, U.S. product manager, corn herbicides, Corteva Agriscience.
“Being able to offer a new active ingredient for the cereals market is incredibly exciting. This new mode of action will make Tolvera herbicide an incredibly valuable tool for cereals farmers to combat weed resistance,” said Breanna Thompson, U.S. product manager, cereals herbicides, Corteva Agriscience.
“Utrisha P is an exciting solution for farmers across a large crop spectrum. Phosphorus is an essential nutrient that can be difficult for plants to take up on their own. In addition to Utrisha P stimulating mobilization of phosphorus in the soil, helping crops take up the nutrient, the new biological also increases crop root growth for better access to other nutrients and water for enhanced plant health and higher grain production, ultimately leading to greater yield potential,” said Brandon Emery, U.S. product manager, biologicals, Corteva Agriscience.
