Breakfree® NXT Herbicide

Early Season Weed Control in Corn

DuPont™ Breakfree® NXT herbicide features a built-in safener, giving corn growers more options for achieving effective early season weed control.

From preplant to early postemergance, Breakfree® NXT provides excellent early season weed control. The flexible atrazine-free formulation is comparable to other proven preemergence herbicides, such as
Surpass EC.

Breakfree® NXT includes a safener to give corn growers the option to use higher rates within label guidelines if needed to target hard-to-control weeds such as waterhemp or to achieve longer residual control.

Flexible Application

Breakfree® NXT can be applied from early preplant to early postemergence in conventional, reduced-till and no-till corn production systems. The convenient formulation can be applied in water or liquid and dry fertilizers, boosting spring efficiency. For more information, reference the Breakfree® NXT rate conversion table.

Powerful Weed Control Partner

Breakfree® NXT complements proven early season weed control strategies. In two-pass programs, it can be followed by Realm® Q, Resolve® Q or Steadfast® Q herbicide. For more broad-spectrum early season weed control, tank-mix Breakfree® NXT with Instigate®, Prequel® or Resolve® Q herbicide.
