Soybean growers have a new tool in the battle against resistant weeds. DuPont Crop Protection has introduced Trivence, a preplant or preemergence herbicide that provides burndown and residual control of broadleaf weeds with three modes of action.
''Trivence is particularly valuable to soybean growers facing glyphosate- and ALS-resistant weeds,'' said James Hay, business director, North America, DuPont Crop Protection. ''Multiple effective modes of action tackle tough broadleaf weeds, preventing weed escapes and the spread of resistant biotypes.''
Featuring three modes of action, it helps preserve the efficacy of existing herbicide options when used in a strategic weed-control program. The formulation also provides reliable and long-lasting control of many challenging weeds, including Palmer amaranth, marestail, waterhemp, giant ragweed, morningglory and lambsquarters.
The formulation moves quickly through the target weed, reaching leaves, roots and shoots for consistent control. Extended residual control keeps fields clean after planting, allowing more uniform soybean emergence and better stand establishment. It performs well even under cool, wet conditions, helping growers get a jump on spring field preparation. The flexible formulation tank mixes easily with a variety of grass and broadleaf herbicides for broad-spectrum control.
Trivence herbicide is included in the TruChoice rewards program, which helps growers partner seed and crop protection products for the greatest agronomic and economic advantage. Trivence herbicide is not registered for use in all states. Contact your local DuPont sales representative for details and availability.
