Did you know 13 states, including Illinois, Indiana and Missouri, have confirmed herbicide-resistant Palmer amaranth in cornfields?*
Palmer amaranth is on a growing list of highly competitive weeds that often are resistant to herbicides. Because of spreading resistance issues, implementing management strategies is vital to its prevention.
Using a herbicide with multiple modes of action is an ideal way to manage herbicide-resistant weeds in your field. It’s an effective strategy because weeds resistant to a specific mode of action can be targeted by the other modes of action. SureStart® II herbicide contains three nonglyphosate modes of action, which means it controls weeds in three ways to give corn the clean start it needs.
With its powerful residual control coupled with multiple modes of action, SureStart® II controls high-anxiety and resistant weeds, including Palmer amaranth, giant ragweed, waterhemp and marestail.
