Basis® Herbicide

Dependable, Broad-spectrum Weed Control for Corn

DuPont™ Basis® Herbicide – for fields to be planted to corn - delivers dependable, broad-spectrum weed control, even under cool, wet conditions.

That can help you plant when you want to next spring in a cleaner warmer seedbed with a fall-applied strategy.

Post Harvest Application Allows Earlier Planting

A fall-applied, post harvest Basis® application prevents weed cover from forming, allowing soil to warm up faster in the spring. No-till and reduced-till fields are ready for earlier planting and conventional-till fields require fewer springtime tillage passes.

Residual Activity Keeps Fields Clean

The use of burndown plus residual herbicides in the fall can prevent weeds from producing seed in the spring. Fall applied Basis® controls winter annual weeds and keeps working to control later-emerging spring weeds so fields stay clean.

Fewer Weeds, Fewer Pests

Weed-free seedbeds are less attractive to damaging insects and less conducive to fungal disease development, creating the ideal environment for young crops to thrive.

Give Your Corn a Head Start with a Better Seedbed

Corn emerges faster with more uniformity in a warmer, cleaner seedbed. Timely planting delivers improved crop establishment and early growth.

  • Best Time to Control Dandelions is Post Harvest

    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.
