Gowan Company has added Yukon herbicide to its line of products. It is used for weed control in sugar cane, field corn, field corn grown for seed and grain sorghum. Yukon provides a combination of post-emergence sedge control with control of broadleaf weeds such as velvetleaf, cocklebur, ragweed, lambsquarters and waterhemp.

In addition, Yukon controls broadleaf weeds demonstrating resistance or tolerance to glyphosate and ALS-inhibiting products.

“Yukon gives growers a potent tool for cost-effective control of nutsedge and tough broadleaf weeds,” says Nick Alonso, product manager for Gowan. “This wide application window provides the most flexibility for field corn, corn grown for seed and sorghum. This can be especially important when weeds demonstrating resistance or tolerance to glyphosate-containing herbicides are present.”

Yukon may be tank-mixed with 2,4-D to achieve a potent and economical tool for postemergence control of labeled weeds.

The addition of Yukon herbicide expands the Gowan Company line of products. “Our mission is to continually provide producers with top quality and effective crop protection products,” Alonso says.

Yukon will be marketed by Gowan Company on behalf of the partnership with Nissan Chemical, formed in 2004.
