DuPont corn herbicides deliver more options

DuPont has received federal registration approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for two corn herbicides: Accent Q and Steadfast Q.

Both new herbicides provide corn growers with the flexibility to apply them under more diverse weather conditions, across more hybrids and with a wider range of adjuvants.

DuPont Accent Q herbicide will provide selective postemergence grass control in field corn grown for seed or grain, popcorn and certain sweet corn hybrids. DuPont Steadfast Q herbicide is for conventional or herbicide-tolerant corn. This contact-plus-residual product allows growers to spray at an early post timing to control tough grasses that compete with corn.

“Accent Q and Steadfast Q herbicides offer consistent weed control with crop safety,” said Jeff Carpenter, corn portfolio manager — DuPont Crop Protection. “The introduction of these two new herbicides is another example of how DuPont is harnessing its patented, homogeneous blend technology to provide growers with answers to shifting weed control problems faster than ever.”

According to Carpenter, the introduction of DuPont Accent Q and Steadfast Q follows the introduction of DuPont Resolve Q corn herbicide, two new herbicide blends in soybeans, Enlite and Envive; as well as a new wheat herbicide, Agility. “These are all examples of how DuPont is delivering on its promise to renew its product portfolio with herbicides that meet the needs of growers today and in the future,” he said.
