Jan 15, 2019Valent’s Fierce MTX herbicide receives EPA approval
Valent U.S.A. has launched Fierce MTZ Herbicide — a stand-alone liquid formulation that combines the company’s leading herbicide, Fierce Herbicide, with the added benefit of metribuzin. The company has received U.S. EPA approval. First sales are expected during the 2019 growing season.
Fierce MTZ contains three effective modes of action that provide long lasting residual control of tough and resistant broadleaf weeds and annual grasses, including Palmer amaranth, common waterhemp, common and giant ragweed and kochia.
Fierce MTZ protects fields for up to eight weeks and provides flexibility for crop rotation with limited carryover and rotational restrictions. In addition, the liquid formulation provides easy mixing and loading.
“With weed control being a key hurdle year after year, we continue to recommend using multiple effective modes of action in weed management systems,” said Dr. John Pawlak, Valent product development manager. “Fierce MTZ provides the longest control over the largest spectrum of troublesome weeds than any other comparable product on the market.”
