UPI has launched Moccasin and Shutdown, two new herbicides for the U.S. market.
Moccasin is the first post-patent herbicide containing the active ingredient S-metolachlor (the same active found in Dual Magnum). Labeled for use on a wide spectrum of crops, including soybeans, cotton, peanuts, potatoes, sugar beets and corn, it has multiple application timings.
Shutdown is a soil applied, long-residual herbicide designed to be used alone or as a tank-mix partner with a variety of pre-emergent herbicides. Labeled crops include soybeans, sunflowers, tobacco and several vegetable crops.
“We are very excited to add Moccasin and Shutdown to our growing portfolio of products,” said Chris Bowley, product manager. “UPI’s mission is to bring high quality and economical options to market that help American growers combat the challenges posed by herbicide resistance. These two products help to reinforce our commitment to this mission.”
