The EPA has issued 2015 approval and registration of DiFlexx herbicide, maker Bayer CropScience said last week. DiFlexx brings together dicamba and CSI Safener.
DiFlexx controls tough weeds such as Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, ragweed and lambsquarter. It also manages more than 100 annual and perennial weeds, including those resistant to glyphosate-, PPO- and ALS-based herbicides, Bayer CropScience said.
A fit in both pre- and post-emergence programs, DiFlexx has a wide window of application, from burndown to V10, for ensuring complete broadleaf weed control and flexibility. DiFlexx is tankmix compatible with Corvus or Balance Flexx herbicides from burndown to V2, and post with Laudis or Capreno herbicides for an extra mode of action on broadleaf weeds.
As the next innovation in crop safeners, the CSI Safener in DiFlexx enables corn plants to better withstand herbicides, Bayer CropScience says.
The safener enables DiFlexx registration for field corn, field corn grown for silage and seed corn, and it can also be used on fallow croplands.
George Roberts, a corn grower from Trivoli, Ill., plans to use DiFlexx on two-thirds of his corn in 2015. "After seeing DiFlexx and using it, I was thrilled with how well the product worked with the safener," he said. "And that makes it that much superior."
