Grain sorghum growers, in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas, now can use DuPont Ally herbicide as a cost-effective solution to control broadleaf weedsand help control their input costs.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently approved the use of Ally on grain sorghum, in the five leading sorghum-producing states. In Texas, Ally is approved for use on grain sorghum north of Interstate 20.

"Sorghum growers have very few herbicide options that are effective and economical, especially considering grain prices," said Warren McDougal, DuPont product manager. "We sought the grain sorghum label for Ally to help growers get the effective weed control they need, while keeping their input costs down. Ally delivers contact control of broadleaf weeds at a very low cost. It gives growers another post-emergence option to control difficult broadleaf weeds such as triazine resistant pigweeds and velvetleaf."

DuPont Ally herbicide is labeled for control of pigweed species, puncture vine and velvetleaf, said McDougal. Growers should apply Ally plus 2,4-D amine when weeds are less than six inches tall and the crop is three to 15 inches in height. Ally can be applied by ground or air.
