Keeping cornfields clean until the crop reaches canopy closure is an important step for maximum yield potential at harvest. In the first season, Resicore® corn herbicide is helping growers across the Midwest achieve this vital goal with impressive power over weeds.

Though Resicore is in its infancy, growers and ag retailers across the Midwest, including Nebraska, Illinois and Missouri, are seeing long-awaited results in weed control. Because of the extended residual control and multiple modes of action, growers and retailers are reporting contained weed pressure several weeks after application.

Corn and soybean grower Steve Plambeck from Kenesaw, Nebraska, custom-applied Resicore at the end of April. With resistance issues and tough weeds like waterhemp and Palmer amaranth, Plambeck said he was in need of a product with multiple modes of action that is effective on these broadleaf species. Resicore not only worked, but it also kept his fields clean until the corn reached canopy.

“I kept watching the fields, and you always expect a few escapes, and this was really staying clean,” Plambeck says. “It’s really impressive, and it’s great to not have to go back and rescue anything.”

In the first season, Resicore has exceeded expectations by providing power over troublesome weed species. Dow AgroSciences field trials have shown 97 percent control of Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and giant ragweed, which are significant results for growers consistently plagued by heavy weed pressure.*

Resicore® herbicide is a novel formulation of three active ingredients with three nonglyphosate and nonatrazine modes of action to control more than 70 broadleaf weeds and grasses. With the combination of acetochlor, mesotrione and clopyralid, Resicore gives growers the power over weeds they need for resounding yield potential at harvest.
