INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 27, 2020 — Corteva Agriscience submitted a new herbicide to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for extended control of broadleaf weeds in wheat. Pending EPA registration, WideARmatch™ herbicide with Arylex™ active will amplify the proven performance of WideMatch® herbicide in one convenient premix formulation.
With the addition of Arylex active and a higher load of fluroxypyr than WideMatch, farmers will be able to use WideARmatch for controlling 66 broadleaf weeds, including kochia, marestail, lambsquarters and pigweed.
WideARmatch will offer farmers an important tool in their fight against resistance given the two unique sites of action. The new herbicide will be tank-mix-compatible with many common herbicides for additional broadleaf and grass control. The flexible application window of WideARmatch will provide farmers the flexibility to apply from the two-leaf stage through flag leaf emergence.
“Growers know effective weed control is a critical component of maximizing yield,” said Brooklynne Dalton, Cereals Herbicide Product Manager, Corteva Agriscience. “As an extension of our WideMatch herbicide — one of the most trusted cereals herbicides on the market — WideARmatch will give wheat growers a new option, extending the spectrum of broadleaf control in an all-in-one low-use-rate premix formulation. This low use rate equates to less trips across the field, saving farmers time and money.”
