Formulation innovation is essential in meeting grower needs while ensuring the success of agrochemical products. This is especially important for pesticides that have been in use for many years and are being considered for new crop protection challenges. Acetochlor has been in use as an effective pre-emergent herbicide in corn for over two decades. More recently an innovative microencapsulation formulation has enabled the use of acetochlor to control glyphosate resistant weeds while increasing the crop safety in soybean and cotton. Weed control and crop safety data on soybean and cotton shown in this report highlight the importance of formulation innovation in the successful launch of an encapsulated acetochlor product that has become an important tool in the management of glyphosate resistant weeds.

Abstract

Formulation innovation is essential in meeting grower needs while ensuring the success of agrochemical products. This is especially important for pesticides that have been in use for many years and are being considered for new crop protection challenges. Acetochlor has been in use as an effective pre-emergent herbicide in corn for over two decades. More recently an innovative microencapsulation formulation has enabled the use of acetochlor to control glyphosate resistant weeds while increasing the crop safety in soybean and cotton. Weed control and crop safety data on soybean and cotton shown in this report highlight the importance of formulation innovation in the successful launch of an encapsulated acetochlor product that has become an important tool in the management of glyphosate resistant weeds.
