ROSWELL, Ga. – Sipcam Agro USA, Inc. has expanded its metolachlor product line with the addition of Stalwart Herbicide. This new formulation is labeled for pre-emergence control of most annual grasses and small-seeded broadleaf weeds in a variety of crops including cotton, peanuts, pod crops, potatoes, safflowers and soybeans.

Sipcam Agro began marketing the Stalwart brand of metolachlor herbicides in 2003 with the introduction of Stalwart C, a safened emulsifiable concentrate for use in field corn, and Stalwart Xtra, a pre-mix field corn herbicide containing metolachlor and atrazine.

“This newest metolachlor product is registered for use on a wide variety of crops, which means our distributors can now offer the value and effectiveness of the Stalwart brand to a more diverse group of growers,” said Mark Shepherd, Sipcam Agro Herbicide business manager.

Shepherd said Stalwart herbicide is a convenient, easy-to-use 8-pound-per-gallon emulsifiable concentrate formulation. “It is ideal for tank mixing with other herbicides as well as fluid fertilizers,” he noted.

The complete line of Stalwart Herbicides is available in 2 x 2.5-gallon cases, 260-gallon mini bulk containers and bulk. Complete product labels can be accessed at www.sipcamagrousa.com.
