Cheminova, Inc. Thursday launched CRUSHER, a selective herbicide that offers both burndown and residual control of annual grass and broadleaf weeds.
CRUSHER contains two active ingredients: thifensulfuron and rimsulfuron, and can be used in fall to early winter or spring to clean up fields in preparation for corn, cotton, soybean or peanut planting, the company said. CRUSHER is labeled for use on field corn when applied at preplant and preemergence and preplant to cotton, soybeans and peanuts.
"CRUSHER offers growers an economic weed control choice from fall through spring for eliminating key winter weeds which allows for clean seedbeds," said Deneen Sebastian, director of marketing, Cheminova, Inc. "This means an advantage to managing planting decisions and avoiding early weed competition the following spring."
CRUSHER can also be tank-mixed other suitable herbicides such as GLYFOS X-TRA Herbicide, dicamba, glufosinate, paraquat and 2,4D, to control additional weeds.
