FMC Receives Registration for Anthem ATZ Herbicide

FMC Receives Registration for Anthem ATZ Herbicide

Anthem ATZ provides broad-spectrum weed control and resistance management

FMC Corporation has received Environmental Protection Agency registration for Anthem ATZ herbicide, a preplant, preemergence and early postemergence herbicide for corn.

Anthem ATZ provides growers with a weed management tool for broad-spectrum weed control and resistance management. Anthem ATZ contains a moderate rate of atrazine, giving growers an additional mode of action in the field. The product can provide additional control of tough weeds both pre and postemergence.

"Anthem ATZ will provide growers with three unique modes of action for those hard to control problem weeds," said Tim Thompson, FMC Agricultural Products North America product manager. "Anthem ATZ will allow for application flexibility during the spring, making it possible for growers to start clean and stay clean."

In research trials conducted by universities, independent researchers and FMC from 2010 through 2012, Anthem ATZ demonstrated crop safety for all types of corn including field, seed, popcorn and sweet corn.

"Anthem ATZ includes a newly registered, powerful residual active ingredient.  When this active is combined with atrazine, it provides a strong one-two punch residual for longer season control of tough annual weeds in corn. It also combines the activity of two postemergence herbicides, allowing growers to combat weeds after they are emerged and providing long lasting residual performance," said Gail Stratman, FMC Agricultural Products North America Midwest technical sales lead.
