Mississauga – Soybean growers in Ontario and Quebec have an effective, flexible new tool for early-season weed control.
DuPont Crop Protection announced today that new DuPont(TM) Freestyle(TM) herbicide will be available for the 2014 growing season.
Freestyle(TM) delivers broad-spectrum control of key annual grass and broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate-tolerant weeds such as dandelion and late-germinating weeds like Eastern black nightshade.
“There are so many variables in a growing season, it just makes sense to control what you can,” says Dave Kloppenburg, London-based Row Crop Segment Manager with DuPont Canada Crop Protection. “No matter which soybean production system growers are using, Freestyle(TM) allows them to achieve enhanced residual control of many troublesome weeds, with flexibility in how they do it.”
Each compact 20-acre case of Freestyle(TM) contains a 20-acre jug of DuPont(TM) Classic® Grande and a 2.5 litre jug of DuPont(TM)Imazethapyr 240 SL herbicide. Growers can mix Freestyle(TM) with their glyphosate of choice for a systemic and residual burndown in GT soybeans.
“Soybean growers know from experience, it’s vital to keep the crop clean during the pre-emergence to 3rd trifoliate stages,” says Kloppenburg.
“Freestyle(TM) provides welcome options to get the crop off to a flying start by minimizing early-season weed competition. Capturing this early advantage means less stress for the crop and ultimately, higher yield potential.”
