Monsanto to debut maize herbicide mix in US
Monsanto is to introduce a combination maize herbicide, TripleFLEX (acetochlor + flumetsulam + clopyralid), in the US next year. The product provides pre- and post-emergence control of grasses and broadleaf weeds. It provides multiple modes of action and is designed to fit in with Monsanto’s glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready maize system, the company points out. Monsanto aims to introduce a range of low-cost herbicides to address resistance to Roundup (glyphosate) as part of its new strategy for the product ( Agrow No 593, p 2).
