An excellent post-emergence herbicide: Cadet herbicide
Jul. 29, 2009
In a recent series of teleconferences, University weed scientists and agronomy experts debated best weed management practices and the growing necessity of a post-emergence herbicide for control of glyphosate -resistant and tolerant weeds. Corn and soybean growers can now download materials from the recent series of AgTelePanels from FMC Corporation and Beck Ag Comm that focused on how to overcome glyphosate-resistant weeds using Cadet herbicide (Active Ingredient (By Wt): Fluthiacet-methyl: 10.3% and other ingredients: 89.7%).
Cadet, a post-emergence herbicide with excellent, selective control of tough broadleaf weeds, is the newest addition to the rapidly expanding portfolio of corn and soybean crop protection products offered by FMC.
Studies by the Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) show that seven of the nine confirmed glyphosate-resistant weeds in the U.S. have evolved this trait in just a few short years. In addition, the WSSA reports that more weed biotypes are becoming increasingly tolerant to glyphosate. University experts agree that for growers, having an aggressive, effective resistance management strategy is more important today than ever before.
Cadet is a post-emergence herbicide that provides effective control of difficult weeds such as velvetleaf, lambsquarters, morningglory, waterhemp and others. Labeled for use in both corn and soybeans, Cadet is an ideal tank-mix partner with glyphosate or other herbicides for added control. Because it is labeled for use in both corn and soybeans, no tank cleaning is required when moving between herbicide applications in these two crops, which can save growers time and money.
Cadet enhances broadleaf control without increasing glyphosate rates on Roundup Ready corn and soybeans. An excellent tank-mix with atrazine, dicamba products, Callisto and Impact, Cadet is a cost-effective addition to improve overall herbicide program performance.
