Dow AgroSciences receives EPA registration for Resicore

The EPA has approved the registration of Dow AgroSciences‘ Resicore herbicide, which will be available to growers for the 2016 growing season. Resicore gives corn growers a new way to eliminate herbicide-resistant weeds and protect yield potential, according to the company.

The three active ingredients — acetochlor, mesotrione and clopyralid — provide three nonglyphosate and nonatrazine modes of action to help growers manage herbicide resistance.

Some of corn’s toughest enemies include waterhemp, giant ragweed, Palmer amaranth, morningglory and marestail. Resicore has been proven to control these troublesome weeds and more than 70 other species growers deal with each season, the company said in a press release.

Resicore can be applied preplant to early postemergence and can be used with conventional, reduced- or no-till corn systems. It is tank-mix-compatible with atrazine, glyphosate and other corn herbicides.

For more information about Resicore, visit the Resicore website or contact a Dow AgroSciences sales representative.
