FMC debuts soybean herbicide in US
FMC has introduced a new soybean herbicide in the US based on established active ingredients. Marvel (fomesafen 346 g/litre + fluthiacet-methyl 14 g/litre) is designed as a tank-mix partner for “maximum post-emergence control of glyphosate-resistant weeds”, the company points out. It controls resistant broadleaf weeds such as waterhemp/pigweed ( Amaranthus spp), lambsquarters ( Chenopodium album), morning-glory ( Ipomoea spp) and velvetleaf ( Abutilon theophrasti). Marvel can be used from prior to planting to full crop flowering.
