Following the increase in resistance of different varieties of grass to some groups of herbicides, Ihara is launching TARGA MAX (quizalofop-P-ethyl), a high selective graminicide that controls a big diversity of infested plants and voluntary corn tolerant to glyphosate
The product controls Ryegrass, Elionurus candidus, and the goosegrass. “TARGA MAX also quickly controls the population of voluntary corn that has become an important plant infesting soybeans and resistance to glyphosate,” highlighted Rodrigo Lima, herbicide manager at Ihara. The herbicide is also registered for use during pre-planting of soybeans, and is easily manageable.
The control spectrum of TARGA MAX goes far beyond glyphosate-resistant plants on soybeans. The product is recommended for the control of diverse types of grass on crops such as cotton, peanuts, onion, kidney beans, soybeans, coffee, citrus, tomatoes, and potatoes.
With a new high technology formulation, TARGA MAX does not use adjuvants to improve efficiency. “Besides, the product can be applied year-long and the frequency can be controlled, shrinking rapidly with matocompetition,” Lima affirms.
According to data released recently by the International Herbicide Resistance Action Committee (HRAC), problems of resistance to glyphosate has increased and several producers have again begun using the graminicides for the control of some species of infested plants.
The growth in the use of glyphosate tolerant corn hybrids has also made the volunteer plants difficult to control on infested plants. With an elevated germinated and escalated flow, the corn competes for light, water, and nutrients that the soybeans need for its development and undesirably, causes serious problems when the grain is harvested.
