Summit Agro USA has launched SHIELDEX® 400SC (Tolpyralate) corn herbicide, a new post-emergent HPPD chemistry that is safe and effective for use in all types of corn.
In evaluations of more than 500 university and private research field trials since 2010, SHIELDEX® 400SC has consistently demonstrated excellent weed control without compromising crop safety.
SHIELDEX® 400SC controls a wide range of broadleaf and grass weeds, including troublesome weeds such as tall waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, giant ragweed and giant foxtail. And the unique HPPD technology that powers SHIELDEX® 400SC provides growers with a flexible new tool in the battle against herbicide resistance.
"We are very excited about the registration of SHIELDEX® 400SC corn herbicide, and look forward to working with our exclusive distribution partners Helena Chemical Co. and Tenkoz Inc. to get the product into the hands of Retailers and Growers across the US," says Jon Forbis, SHIELDEX® 400SC product manager.
The formulated product SHIELDEX® was invented by Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha, Ltd. and developed and manufactured by ISK Biosciences Corporation.
