UPI launches two new herbicide products

UPI has launched two new herbicides in the U.S.

MOCCASIN is a post-patent herbicide containing the active ingredient S-metolachlor (the same active ingredient found in Dual Magnum). The herbicide is labeled for use on a wide spectrum of crops, including soybeans, cotton, peanuts, potatoes, sugar beets and corn. With multiple application timings, MOCCASIN is one of the most versatile soil applied herbicides available, according to UPI.

SHUTDOWN is a soil applied, long-residual herbicide designed to be used alone or as a tank mix partner with a variety of pre-emergent herbicides, the company claims. Labeled crops include soybeans, sunflowers, tobacco and several vegetable crops.

SHUTDOWN contains one of the most commonly used active ingredients in U.S. agriculture, and has a higher active ingredient loading than similar products in the marketplace, according to UPI.
