Surveil® herbicide (flumioxazin+cloransulam-methyl) – a new preemergence, residual herbicide, has received approval from the US Environmental Protection Agency and will be available for the 2016 growing season.
This new herbicide combines two leading active ingredients in one convenient premix for soybean growers. The premix from Dow AgroSciences offers easy mixing and handling characteristics and proven weed control that growers can count on to battle , herbicide resistant and hard-to-control broadleaf weeds.
“This new formulation is the first to offer growers the convenience of having the active ingredients flumioxazin and cloransulam-methyl together in one easy-to-use premix,” says Melissa Olds, formulation chemist for Dow AgroSciences. “This product was developed so that it would be easy for growers to use. You’ll find Surveil offers excellent handling properties, such as dispersing quickly when added to water.”
Surveil herbicide can be applied from preplant up to three days after planting, before emergence. The two modes of action deliver proven, residual performance to help growers tackle herbicide resistance issues and hard-to-control weeds such as marestail, Palmer amaranth, and giant and common ragweed.
With a short rotational interval, growers can rotate to many key crops nine months following a Surveil application.
Dow AgroSciences has a proven portfolio of soybean herbicides that offer residual control to keep fields clean into the season. The portfolio currently includes Sonic® herbicide, FirstRate® herbicide and Surveil® herbicide.
