Unique Chemistry In Armezon Herbicide Is Tough On Weeds, Safe On Corn

Unique Chemistry In Armezon Herbicide Is Tough On Weeds, Safe On Corn

Corn growers can protect their input investments and yield with new post-emerge herbicide from BASF.

The continued spread of resistant weeds and strong commodity prices have high-yielding corn growers seeking more complete, comprehensive weed management solutions to protect their crops. That's why BASF Crop Protection today announced the addition of Armezon herbicide to its innovative herbicide portfolio. Armezon helps growers maximize their yields by controlling tough, yield-robbing weeds while being safe to all corn types.

A post-emerge herbicide solution for corn, Armezon controls problematic grasses and broadleaf weeds such as common lambsquarters, waterhemp, giant foxtail and crabgrass – including those with resistance to glyphosate, triazines, PPOs, and ALS inhibitors.

"Armezon is definitely tough on weeds," said John Sabatka, Post Corn Herbicides Product Manager with BASF. "At the same time, it's also safe to use on all field and specialty corn, regardless of trait – including the most sensitive varieties."

Armezon also has a wider window of application when compared to most other post-emerge corn herbicides on the market. It is an excellent cross-spectrum tank-mix partner, which makes it particularly helpful for growers who rely on post applications of atrazine or glyphosate to manage tough weeds.

With innovative solutions, technical support and educational tools, BASF is a grower's No. 1 partner for managing weed resistance by providing more corn and soybean herbicide sites of action than any other crop protection company. The launch of OpTill PRO and Armezon herbicides demonstrates the commitment of BASF to provide growers with new chemistries and products to help maximize their yield potential and proactively manage resistant weeds.
