FMC North America segment manager Matt Hancock says they received great feedback from corn growers who used Solstice last season. “We found that 92% of those growers that tried it last year were interested in shifting their program to Solstice in 2015,” said Hancock. “They really keyed in on the speed and the effectiveness on waterhemp.”

Hancock says Solstice combines a wide application window with fast performance to manage weed escapes and maintain cleaner fields as part of a season-to-season resistance management strategy.
