Mar 7, 2018UPI launches herbicide resistance management tool
UPI, has launched TRIPZIN ZC herbicide in the U.S. The new herbicide is a unique, patented pre-mix that combines two active ingredients, metribuzin and pendimethalin. The company said TRIPZIN ZC will provide pre-emergent control of a wide spectrum of broadleaf and annual grass weeds, including Palmer pigweed and other pigweed species, ragweed species, lambsquarters and velvetleaf. Crops on the TRIPZIN ZC label include potatoes, peas, soybeans, alfalfa and field corn.
“The combination of metribuzin and pendimethalin in one product gives growers two modes of action and, therefore, a viable resistance management tool to help them protect their crop,” said Chris Bowley, senior product manager.
Bowley also said the formulation is water based, and therefore has a very low VOC profile and convenient handling characteristics. The company said trial results over the past two years in multiple regions of the US have shown that TRIPZIN ZC provides consistent, repeatable control of many of the key weed species that create headaches for growers.
