DuPont’s Basis Blend herbicide has received federal registration approval from the EPA for application after harvest and before ground freeze-up to control tough winter annuals weeds. Basis Blend will replace DuPont Basis 75DF herbicide.

Basis Blend delivers burndown and residual weed control for fall or early spring applications. “When applied in the fall, Basis Blend provides long-lasting weed control for cleaner, warmer seedbeds the following spring in fields that will be planted to corn,” says John Chrosniak, regional director, North America, DuPont Crop Protection. “Weeds slow productivity and reduce yield, making strategic weed control and managing weed resistance crucial. At DuPont, we strive to develop products that take weed control to the next level, collaborating with customers to meet growers’ changing needs.”

Basis Blend is a selective herbicide for post harvest burndown and residual control of certain annual grass and broadleaf weeds. “The new formulation is more readily adsorbed by weeds, resulting in more consistent control,” adds Chrosniak.

Basis Blend uses a dry-blended formulation, which dissolves more completely than Basis 75DF for more effective burndown and residual control of tough weeds and grasses. Under cool conditions, Basis Blend controls glyphosate-tolerant and glyphosate-resistant weeds, plus others, including dandelion, poison hemlock, annual bluegrass, henbit and other winter annuals.
