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.”
