Monsanto expands acetochlor use in US

Monsanto has received US approval for a new formulation of the established herbicide, acetochlor, for early post-emergence use on cotton and soybeans. MON63410 is an encapsulated formulation, which provides greater crop safety to these crops than Monsanto’s residual acetochlor-based maize herbicides, Harness and Degree, the company points out. It plans to introduce MON63410 this year in areas of the US where there are herbicide resistance problems in the control of Palmer amaranth ( Amaranthus palmeri) and tall waterhemp ( A tuberculatus).
