DuPont Crop Protection has introduced DuPont™ EverpreX™ herbicide (S-metolachlor), which provides extended residual control of ALS-, PPO- and/or glyphosate resistant weeds, including waterhemp, Palmer amaranth and other pigweed species. Soybean growers have a new option for giving crops a strong start to canopy development even when resistant weeds threaten yield and early season productivity.
 
"In the battle against resistant weeds, EverpreX™ is a valuable solution to help safeguard yield potential by minimizing competition for nutrients, moisture and sunlight," said James Hay, business director, North America, DuPont Crop Protection. "EverpreX™ is a critical component of effective resistance management strategies, which overlay contact plus residual herbicides to provide season-long control, prevent weed escapes and stop the spread of resistant biotypes."
 
EverpreX™ (pronounced ever-PRE-ex) demonstrates excellent weed control when tank-mixed with glyphosate herbicides, such as DuPont™ Abundit® Edge. When tank-mixed with other pre- or postemergence herbicides, EverpreX™ provides residual control of Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, lambsquarters, nightshade, foxtails and other small-seeded grasses and broadleaf weeds. Studies have demonstrated that tank mixtures including S-metolachlor deliver more complete, consistent control of many ALS-, PPO- and glyphosate-resistant grass and broadleaf weeds.
 
Compatible and easily mixed with many other soybean herbicides, EverpreX™ contains S-metolachlor for residual control via inhibition of shoot- and root-tissue growth soon after weed germination. It has a wide application window with the flexibility to be applied 45 days prior to planting and up to 90 days before harvest. It can be used as an early preplant, preplant incorporated, pre-emergence or postemergence herbicide that provides recropping adaptability when rotating from soybeans to other crops.
