Controls Tough-To-Kill Broadleaf Weeds as part of an Integrated Weed Management Program

A selective herbicide with an underutilized mode of action, TOUGH® 5EC enhances post-emergence control of actively growing broadleaf weeds. In numerous university research trials (100+) across the corn belt, results show significant increase in weed control when TOUGH 5EC is included in the tank mix. Increased weed control of 5% to as much as 29% has been observed, especially when herbicide resistance to other classes of chemistry are present in the weed population.

TOUGH 5EC, with active ingredient pyridate - a PSII class chemistry, has shown notable synergy the HPPD class of herbicides. Additionally, enhancement of atrazine is evident. With TOUGH 5EC, growers can increase use of the PSII class of chemistry while manitaining crop safety.

TOUGH 5EC is especially effective on Pigweeds, Palmer Amaranth, Waterhemp, Kochia, Common Lambsquarters, and Black Nightshades. It is even effective on strains resistant to other more-commonly used herbicides.

Adding TOUGH 5EC to an integrated weed management program, also helps to combat weed resistance, leading to a higher quality corn crop.
