GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, April 17, 2018 – Syngenta has received confirmation from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that Fusilade® DX herbicide has been cleared for tank mixing with both XtendiMax® with VaporGrip® Technology and Engenia® herbicides. Fusilade DX will be available for use on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans, providing growers with more options for a strong weed management plan this growing season.

Volunteer corn, one of the most common weed escapes in soybeans, is efficiently controlled by Fusilade DX. Research conducted by Syngenta in Waterloo, Nebraska, found that when it comes to yield loss, volunteer corn is more competitive than giant ragweed, velvetleaf and pigweed.

“Fusilade DX offers superior control of volunteer corn in soybeans,” said John Appel, herbicide product lead at Syngenta. “The ability to tank mix this herbicide with dicamba expands the options for growers to manage a wider variety of weeds.”

Fusilade DX offers post-emergence weed control for soybeans in all tillage situations. In addition to XtendiMax and Engenia, Fusilade DX readily tank mixes with a variety of other broadleaf herbicides. In a 2017 Syngenta cooperator trial, Fusilade DX tank mixed with XtendiMax had 87 percent control of volunteer corn 21 days after treatment, while Clethodim herbicide had only 70 percent control.

Fusilade DX, along with all of the other recently cleared Syngenta herbicide tank mixes, has been tested according to EPA approved protocol and the results are certified in accordance to the terms and conditions of registration for XtendiMax and Engenia.

Syngenta herbicides cleared for tank mixing with XtendiMax and Engenia may be used only once listed on the following websites, which will happen within 90 days of EPA clearance: www.XtendiMaxApplicationRequirements.com and www.EngeniaTankMix.com. Syngenta does not recommend using any dicamba herbicide tank mixes until they are posted on these websites.
