Corteva Agriscience’s WideARmatch has received a label in wheat for 2021. It contains Arylex active and a higher load of fluroxypyr than WideMatch. WideARmatch is labeled for control of 66 broadleaf weeds including including kochia, marestail, lambsquarters and pigweed.

The herbicide has two unique sites of action and is tank mix compatible with many common herbicides for additional grass and broadleaf weed control. It can be applied from the two-leaf stage of development through flag leaf emergence.

“WideARmatch will give wheat growers a new option, extending the spectrum of broadleaf control in an all-in-one low-use-rate premix formulation. This low use rate equates to less trips across the field, saving farmers time and money,” says Brooklynne Dalton, cereals herbicide product manager, Corteva Agriscience.
