Two New DuPont Herbicides Approved

DuPont has received federal registration approval from EPA for two corn herbicides: Accent Q and Steadfast Q, both containing the active ingredient nicosulfuron. Both new herbicides provide your corn growers with the flexibility to make applications under more diverse weather conditions, across more hybrids, and with a wider range of adjuvants.

DuPont Accent Q herbicide will provide selective postemergence grass control in field corn grown for seed or grain, popcorn, and certain sweet corn hybrids. DuPont Steadfast Q herbicide is for conventional or herbicide-tolerant corn. This contact-plus-residual product allows growers to spray at an early post timing to control tough grasses that compete with corn.

“Accent Q and Steadfast Q herbicides offer consistent weed control with crop safety,” says Jeff Carpenter, corn portfolio manager, DuPont Crop Protection. “The introduction of these two new herbicides is another example of how DuPont is harnessing its patented, homogeneous blend technology to provide growers with answers to shifting weed control problems faster than ever.”

What is the need for two more toxic sprays and chemicals to pollute more of the country’s aquifer -you have the G.E. corn crop now-that even starving third world countries won’t even import or use when dying. When will you idiots get wise and make good products that are HELPFUL – not “Harmful” Do you enjoy poisoning your own kids; or are you just too stupid to care.

Accent Q is used at the label rate of 0.9 ounces per acre while atrazine, the major corn herbicide, is recommended at 2.5 pounds per acre. Atrazine is considered a groundwater pollutant while the a.i. in Accent Q is not. Considering the use rate, Accent Q will not become a ground water pollutant. Believe it or nuts, the sulfonyl urea herbicides are an improvement. Having worked in the third world in corn I can also attest that it is the governments of these countries that keep improved G.E. varieties out unless they can get their hands on the profits. They have an interest in selling pesticides to their people for a profit and G.E. crops use less pesticides.
