New herbicides available for corn

FMC Corporation has received Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval of two new herbicides, Anthem and Anthem ATZ, for corn.

Anthem herbicides are the result of several years of planning, research and development. A preplant, preemergence and early postemergence herbicide for corn, Anthem has two different modes of action, providing an excellent weed management tool for broad-spectrum weed control, resistance management and a lower-use rate range. Anthem ATZ adds the spectrum of atrazine in a patent-pending formulation that mixes and handles easily.

Anthem use rates are approximately four times less than traditional residual corn herbicides and studies show that Anthem performs exceptionally well at these low rates. The low-use rate means growers and custom applicators can get more acres sprayed in a day, which is critical during the busy spring.

Previous test plots have provided strong in-field results on the efficacy of these herbicides. "Anthem and Anthem ATZ could set a new standard for broad-spectrum, long-lasting grass and broadleaf weed control in corn, providing growers with more effective control resulting in higher yields," said Bob Hooten, technical support manager for FMC Agricultural Products.

In-field results from 2011 and 2012 test plots for Anthem and Anthem ATZ have demonstrated excellent crop safety. Studies indicate that Anthem herbicides are effective, convenient products with application flexibility for all tillage systems. This summer, growers and retailers are seeing first-hand the effectiveness of Anthem herbicides at test plots hosted by FMC.

"Test plots hosted in various soil types and geographical areas continue to allow FMC to gather additional research data, examine the efficacy and further develop our crop protection products," said Hooten.

There are more than 90 research test plots in 2012 across a broad geography on a wide range of soil types and in both irrigated and non-irrigated acres.
