Cheminova debuts herbicide combination in US
Cheminova has launched a combination herbicide for use on soybeans and cotton in the US based on established active ingredients. Statement (metolachlor 520 g/litre + fomesafen 109 g/litre) is for pre-plant and pre-emergence control of annual grass and broadleaf weeds in soybeans, while also providing residual control and reducing early weed competition, the company points out. The product can be applied post-emergence on cotton for the control of grasses, broadleaf weeds and sedges. Statement is a new choice for growers looking to control weeds with resistance to glyphosate or acetolactate synthase inhibitors, Cheminova notes. The herbicide goes on sale on April 1st.
