EPA registers BASF herbicide on all corn types

BASF’s Armezon PRO herbicide, which provides long-lasting residual control of emerged grass and broadleaf weeds, has received full EPA registration for use on all corn types.

“Growers want flexible options to control weeds based on their farm’s needs,” said Daniel Waldstein, technical market manager for BASF. “Armezon PRO herbicide has a wide application window and low use rate, resulting in time, storage and money savings.”

Armezon PRO herbicide is a combination of topramezone, the active ingredient in Armezon herbicide, and dimethenamid-P, the active ingredient in Outlook herbicide. This chemistry combination helps provide strong contact and residual weed control, according to BASF.

Armezon PRO herbicide has high bioavailability to deliver control under wet and dry conditions. This results in better control of grass and small-seeded broadleaf weeds, such as foxtails, barnyardgrass, waterhemp and Palmer amaranth.

“Because Armezon PRO herbicide has strong contact and residual performance, corn growers can rely on its consistency and have less worry about the risk of a re-spray,” Waldstein said. “With Armezon PRO herbicide, we hope to give growers confidence in their weed control.”

Armezon PRO herbicide will be available to all corn growers for the 2016 season.
