AMVAC® and Syngenta® Crop Protection Promote Tank Mixing with FirstRate Herbicide

Newport Beach, CA

AMVAC®, an American Vanguard® company, and Syngenta® Crop Protection have teamed up to promote the agronomic value of tank mixing FirstRate® herbicide with Prefix®, Boundary® 6.5 EC or BroadAxe® XC herbicide for long-lasting and full-season weed control in soybeans.

The combination of FirstRate and Syngenta herbicides provides unmatched flexibility and performance across all soybeans, including conventional, LibertyLink®, GT27®, Enlist®, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® and XtendFlex® soybeans. Together they provide unique flexibility and performance, resulting in better on-farm solutions for tough-to-control weeds.

“Not only do these herbicides provide excellent crop safety, the combination also delivers multiple modes of action to address tough-to-control weeds, such as waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, giant ragweed, common ragweed, morningglory and marestail,” said Nathaniel Quinn, marketing manager for corn, soybeans and sugar beet. “Soybean growers should talk to their trusted retailers to further discuss the weed control benefits these herbicides provide.”
