Growers have been seeing some great results with FMC’s Solstice™ postemergence herbicide in this second year on the market.
“Corn growers are pretty familiar with the HPPD inhibitor chemistry that’s in Solstice,” said FMC North America corn segment manager Matt Hancock during interviews at the recent Ag Media Summit. “But what we did was take that one step further and by adding Cadet® to that chemistry we pick up a lot of speed.”
That also broadens the spectrum of weeds that Solstice can control and Hancock says it works really well with Anthem® in corn “to be able to really keep it and add some time on to the end of that residual control.”
And it fits in well with the Overlap™ System that FMC promotes. “Overlapping the residuals is key and that’s where Anthem followed by Solstice is really market leading performance,” said Hancock.
