HELM Agro US, Inc. announces the signing of an agreement to acquire EXTREME® herbicide from BASF Corporation.
EXTREME provides excellent burndown and season-long residual control of more than 50 broadleaf and
grass weeds in Roundup Ready® soybeans, Clearfield® corn and Roundup Ready alfalfa.
When applied following a soil residual pre-emergence herbicide, EXTREME enhances weed control with two additional modes of action - glyphosate and imazethapyr. EXTREME represents a valuable resistance management tool for difficult-to-control weeds like Nightshade, Morningglory, Marestail,
Waterhemp, Velvetleaf and Foxtail.
The highly versatile product can be applied pre-plant, pre emergence and early postemergence.
EXTREME also reduces the need for a second glyphosate application on Roundup Ready soybeans at the 3 pints per acre rate.
Michael Hoger, National Sales Director, confirms that once EXTREME transitions to HELM, customers can expect a continuation of superior sales support and product quality.
“Our sales team is excited about servicing the marketplace with this outstanding offering alongside HELM’s comprehensive product set of top quality herbicides, fungicides and insecticides,” says Hoger.
