DuPont debuts pre-plant herbicide mix in US

DuPont is launching a new combination herbicide in the US based on existing active ingredients for the 2015 season. Afforia (thifensulfuron-methyl 5% + tribenuron-methyl 5% + flumioxazin 40.8%) is a pre-plant herbicide for soybeans and other field crops that provides "excellent burn-down and residual control of many of the most challenging weeds", the company points out. The combination herbicide employs two modes of action to help manage herbicide resistance, it adds. Afforia can be tank-mixed with glyphosate or 2,4-D for cross-spectrum burn-down prior to planting.
