Three Key Takeaways from This Article:
- Controlling herbicide-resistant weeds is a top priority when planning for a new season.
- A strong herbicide plan for soybean fields needs to include several modes of action, residual control and flexibility.
- A good recommendation for your customers that fits all these criteria is Dupont™ Trivence® herbicide from Corteva Agriscience.
As you plan your customers’ soybean herbicide programs for spring 2020, controlling herbicide-resistant weeds is likely top of mind. While looking for the right products, it’s a good idea to consider herbicides that offer unique modes of action, flexible application and strong, residual control. Dupont™ Trivence® herbicide from Corteva Agriscience fits the bill on all three counts.
Three Modes of Action
Trivence offers three unique modes of action to control glyphosate-resistant weeds such as Palmer amaranth, lambsquarters and giant ragweed. These modes of action include seedling control by stunting seedling growth; residual control by binding to weed proteins to stop energy production in the plant; and contact control by burning plant tissues.
Residual control from Trivence lasts up to six weeks after application. A strong, residual herbicide is key to keeping germinating weeds under control.
Farmers across the Midwest struggled with a cool, wet spring in 2019. If we see those conditions again, Trivence will continue to be a go-to solution for weed control. The herbicide offers flexible application in spring, from preplant up to three days after planting. If bad weather creates setbacks, a flexible application time provides more opportunities for spraying.
Trivence herbicide also can be tank mixed with a variety of partners, such as glyphosate and 2,4-D, to offer even more modes of action.
