NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) Corn growers are already fighting early weed problems with early season warm temperatures. At the recent Commodity Classic expo in New Orleans, LA, our Markets Editor Mark Oppold visited with John Foresman from Syngenta, who said their new product, Acuron, is available for the first time this growing season. 

“We received the registration for Acuron April 24th of last year – that was right during the middle of corn planting season,” said Foresman. “Growers were able to use it across many different geographies, and they got a chance to really experience the product on a broad, trial-use basis.”

Explaining what sets his product apart from other herbicides on the market, Foresman continues, “Acuron contains the brand new active ingredient bicyclopyrone, along with three other complimentary, overlapping active ingredients that give you great control – not only the level of control but also consistency of control – of tough weeds like giant ragweed, lambsquarters, morningglory, waterhemp, and the difficult weeds that farmers are having trouble controlling today.”

Regarding Atrazine, Foresman had this to say: “We recently received a registration for Acuron Flexi, and it contains three active ingredients, but Atrazine and Glyphosate are not part of that. Growers in the northern part of the corn belt – like Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa – who don’t want to use Atrazine would probably like to give this product a shot.”

When asked what users of this product would notice over and against experiences with other products, Foresman responded: “They’re going to see better control of large-seeded, broadleaf weeds. The difficult ones to control are morningglory, cocklebur, giant ragweed, Palmer amaranth, and waterhemp. These tough weeds are what Acuron and Acuron Flexi control well.”

Foresman adds that weeds that were once confined to a particular area of the country are now more widespread.
