anthem-maxx-herbicide-logoAnthem® Maxx herbicide, a new and stronger concentration of Anthem herbicide by FMC, is now available to corn and soybean growers.

“Anthem Maxx herbicide has the same benefits that growers are familiar with getting from our Anthem herbicides with a decreased use rate, cutting the rate in half,” said Matt Hancock, FMC Agricultural Solutions North America corn segment manager. “With its higher concentration, the convenience of Anthem Maxx herbicide becomes even greater due to the lower use rates required.”

Use rates range from 2.0-6.5 oz/A on corn and 2.0-5.7 oz/A on soybeans. These rates are half the rates of Anthem herbicide that was introduced by FMC in 2013. Featuring a liquid formulation, Anthem Maxx herbicide provides ease of handling. A 2.5 gallon container could treat approximately 80-100 acres, resulting in less mixing, less cleanup and less packaging disposal.

Anthem Maxx herbicide provides strong control of broadleaf weeds such as waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, lambsquarters and redroot pigweed with long residual performance. The herbicide also suppresses other key broadleaf weeds including morningglories, velvetleaf and kochia. Additionally, Anthem Maxx herbicide provides control of annual grasses like foxtails, crabgrass and fall panicum with strong suppression on other tough grass weeds.
