Count on Resolve® Q to deliver focused weed control on contact.
Post harvest applications are a smart weed management strategy.
Insect and weed pests can cause yield loss quickly. Noticing them in time to stop the damage requires regular scouting. Use these tips to make the most of scouting time.
Aproach® Prima fungicide has two premier modes of action for better control of frogeye leaf spot and other hard-to-manage and strobilurin-resistant diseases in soybeans. The dual modes of action enhance resistance management and efficacy.
Count on Assure® II for the best volunteer corn control in your soybeans and cotton
For corn and soybean fungicide applications, timing is everything. Learn strategies for protecting crop yield potential by preventing disease damage.
Timely application of Staple® LX herbicide gives excellent control of cotton weed threats that can reduce yield, including Palmer amaranth and other difficult-to-control weeds.
Late-summer insect pests can threaten crop quality. Feeding damage creates opportunities for fungal infection or rot and may trigger dockage at the elevator. Tips on scouting for damaging insect pests.
Larval injury from corn rootworms may make roots more susceptible to root and stalk rot disease, even on hybrids with rootworm-resistant traits. Scouting and evaluating control measures can help growers manage damage and yield loss.
As temperatures warm, watch for early signs of powdery mildew in wheat fields. Timely application of DuPont™ Aproach® or Aproach Prima® fungicide can help stop powdery mildew from spreading to protect yield potential.
Know the difference between mode and site of action to plan weed-control programs that manage herbicide resistance.
Dickie Edmund, DuPont Crop Protection field development representative, recommends giving soybeans a consistent growing advantage for effective resistant palmer amaranth management and greater yields.
Strategies for controlling herbicide-resistant weeds in corn and soybeans with a preplant foundation of burndown and residual herbicide.

Soybean growers and agronomists report early, longer-lasting weed control, including control of glyphosate-tolerant or resistant weeds, with DuPont™ Envive® herbicide.
DuPont™ TruChoice® Northeast rewards growers with access to local agronomic expertise, an unmatched crop protection and seed portfolio, purchase advantages and competitive financing.
TruChoice® rewards growers with access to local agronomic expertise, an unmatched crop protection and seed portfolio, purchase advantages and competitive financing.
DuPont™ TruChoice® Southern Plains rewards growers with access to local agronomic expertise, an unmatched crop protection and seed portfolio, purchase advantages and competitive financing.
Aproach® is a broad-spectrum fungicide that delivers more reliable soybean disease control of both foliar and soil-borne fungal disease in corn, soybeans and wheat.
Lannate® SP insecticide helps control brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) infestations on selected fruit, vegetable and grain crops.
When weather conditions increase soybean white mold risk, a timely application of Aproach® fungicide can help control white mold to protect yield.
Fungicide resistance is a growing concern for many soybean growers. Heather Marie Kelly, University of Tennessee, describes strategies for resistant frogeye leaf spot control.
Foliar disease is a major cause of lodged stalks, which can lead to yield losses and increased harvest time. Frequent scouting and timely fungicide applications are the best defense against potential crop damage and yield loss.
The 3,300 acres of Chesapeake Farms® are devoted to the development, evaluation, and demonstration of advanced agricultural practices and wildlife management techniques, which are designed to be environmentally sound, productive, economically viable and socially acceptable.
In addition to being an inspiring meeting location and conference center, Chesapeake Farms® is a resource for collaborative thinking around sustainability issues and conservation for DuPont. Chesapeake Farms® is a catalyst for diverse organizations, across a variety of DuPont businesses to promote conservation.
The most effective strategies for white mold control combine multiple management practices and timely fungicide applications. Learn how to scout and manage this destructive disease to protect soybean yield.
A tank-mix of glyphosate with Classic® herbicide delivers better postemergence soybean weed control than using glyphosate alone.
The TruChoice® Early Pay Multiplier program multiplies your crop protection spending dollars upfront. There’s no waiting for a rebate.
TruChoice® Advance Planning gives grower access to a team of experts and significant savings on crop production inputs.
A residual fall burndown herbicide application helps reduce weed seed production, manage early winter annuals and provide weed control into spring.
The TruChoice® Early Pay Multiplier helps growers multiply their crop protection input costs when they make early commitments. Actual product choices can be made closer to application time.
Canopy® herbicide delivers burndown plus residual activity to help maximize early-season control of tough weeds, allowing the postemergence application to be made closer to canopy.
A cold, wet spring can push planting dates to the limit, leaving little time for preplant herbicide applications. A fall application of DuPont™ Canopy® EX or Basis® herbicide post harvest can halt development of winter annual weeds and allow for earlier planting in a warmer, cleaner seedbed.
Effective seed treatment with DuPont™ Dermacor® X-100 can help control rice insects and increase yield.
Increased no-till and reduced-till production has led to numerous benefits for corn growers, but it also has contributed a shift in the weed spectrum. For example, Italian ryegrass has become a significant problem in many fields.
Enhance performance of LibertyLink soybeans with Classic® postemergence herbicide.
Dandelions have become an increasing problem since many growers shifted to reduced-tillage or no-till systems. After the crop has been harvested in the fall, weeds such as dandelions begin to grow as they prepare to overwinter.
With Temik no longer available, count on DuPont™ Vydate® C-LV insecticide/nematicide to help manage thrips and plant bugs, extending nematode control following nematicide seed treatments.
Early season pests can take a bite out of yields. Scouting within a few weeks of emergence is key to protecting yield from damage by weeds, disease and insects.
The DuPont™ Crop Protection Plus® sugar beet cost replacement program protects early season herbicide and insecticide investments for sugar beet growers who apply UpBeet® and/or Assure® II herbicides during the growing season.
