Dow Launching New Soybean Burndown Herbicide

With the 2016 growing season nearing the halfway mark, many growers are scouting soybean fields to find unwelcome marestail plants competing with their crops. While marestail is not new to Midwest growers, herbicide-resistant marestail continues to spread, making it increasingly difficult to control with glyphosate alone.

Pending registration, Elevore herbicide will provide thorough control of many glyphosate- and ALS-resistant weeds, including marestail up to 8 inches tall, chickweed, and henbit. It is expected to control and suppress costly and high-anxiety weeds when applied as part of a grower’s burndown program before planting.
