Cheminova, Inc. today announced the launch of Bestow Herbicide, which provides control of numerous grassy and broadleaf weeds including foxtail, lambsquarters, pigweed, smartweed and woolly cupgrass in field corn. Bestow may also be used as a fallow treatment in the spring or fall when the majority of weeds have emerged and are actively growing. Bestow may be applied preemergence and postemergence in field corn.
“Bestow is flexible and affordable,” said Ken Phelps, Product Manager, Cheminova, Inc. “It’s another arrow in the quiver for field corn growers to use as a first application or as weeds emerge later in the season.”
The active ingredient in Bestow is rimsulfuron and as such offers long lasting soil residual activity in labeled crops. It is an alternative to Resolve Q herbicide.
