Monsanto adds an acetochlor premix formulation, called TripleFlex, for preemerge and postemerge use in corn. The new herbicide will be available for the 2011 crop season.

The company claims TripleFlex will control a broad spectrum of grasses as well as small and large seeded broadleaf weeds such as pigweed, lambsquarters, waterhemp, velvetleaf and ragweed species. The product joins Monsanto’s Harness family of acetochlor herbicides. The company also offers two other broadleaf active ingredients: flumetsulam and clopyralid.

TripleFlex will also fit directly into the Roundup Ready Corn System, as Monsanto looks for more solutions for managing resistant weeds.
