Research Triangle Park, North Carolina (November 4, 2015)--Armezon® PRO herbicide provides long-lasting residual control of emerged grass and broadleaf weeds. The BASF product has received full Environmental Protection Agency (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, Ph.D., 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.

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,” said Waldstein. “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. To learn more, ask your local retailer or visit www.agproducts.basf.us/products/armezon-pro-herbicide.html.
