2010 Corn Herbicide Update Brian Jones Agronomy Extension Agent
Outline Some new molecules available for 2009/2010 –Kixor technology Update on HPPD chemistry New products with enhanced crop safety
Kixor (BASF) Saflufenacil – new molecule PPO inhibitor Low use rate (1-4 oz/A) Marketed as: –Sharpen (saflufenacil alone) or –Integrity (saflufenacil + dimethenamid-P (Outlook))
Kixor (BASF) Sharpen: broadleaf burndown and residual application for corn, soybean, and small grains –Active on certain key broadleaf weeds –Useful for weeds that glyphosate has issues with –Mix with glyphosate for maximum control
Kixor (BASF) Integrity: broad spectrum pre-emergence treatment –“Without the need for atrazine” Atrazine will make it even more effective –Good control of many annual grasses

Capreno (Bayer) Tembotrione (Laudis) + thiencarbazone (new ALS) + safener HPPD inhibitor Low rate: 3 oz/A POST control similar to Laudis –Thiencarbazone (ALS inhibitor) gives broader weed control spectrum
Require Q (DuPont) Rimsulfuron (Resolve) + dicamba (Clarity) + safener (isoxadifen) Developed as a POST tank-mix for glyphosate in RR corn Improves broadleaf (esp perennial) control Also provides residual control of grass and broadleaf germination 4 oz/A applied when corn between 4” and 20”
Resolve Q (DuPont) Rimsulfuron (Resolve) + thifensulfuron (Harmony SG) + safener (isoxadifen) POST foliar plus residual tank-mix partner with glyphosate or glufosinate Improve control of lambsquarters, pigweed, velvetleaf; provide suppression of annual grasses (foxtail, barnyardgrass, panicum, crabgrass) 1.25 oz/A applied before corn is 20”
SureStart (Dow) Acetochlor (TopNotch) + flumetsulam (Python) + clopyralid (Stinger) + safener Apply PRE to early POST (11” tall corn) tank-mix with glyphosate or glufosinate PRE will give early season control of many annual grasses and broadleaf to improve timing of in-season glyphosate or glufosinate Non-atrazine alternative
Accent Q and Steadfast Q (DuPont) Nicosulfuron-based products Added safener (isoxadifen) allow higher rates for better grass control
