Farmers are advised to take a proactive approach in their preparation for the 2022 crop year. Syngenta Corn Herbicide Product Lead Shawn Hock says choices are being made now. “Farmers need to understand what their input needs are going to be and start working with your supplier or ag retailer to get you lined up for your season so you’re prepared and ready to go.” There are different strategies for farmers to deal with the product shortages that are being seen this fall. Syngenta has a new corn herbicide called Acuron GT that offer a longer residual. “One of the things we found is that it not only kills the weeds, it also challenges what you’ve been doing on your farm in the post-emergence space by applying the herbicide a little bit earlier than you normally would have and that helps you keep the nutrients and the water and the life for the crop, not the weeds, giving you a better ROI.”
