Zest™ WDG Herbicide

Postemergence Grass Control Boosts Sorghum Yield

DuPont™ Zest™ WDG herbicide provides postemergence grass control for grain sorghum varieties containing the DuPont™ Inzen™ herbicide tolerance trait to give growers a better chance for a better crop, yield and profitability.

Together, the Inzen™ sorghum trait and Zest™ WDG deliver:

  • A proven herbicide active ingredient new to grain sorghum (milo)
  • More ways to manage grass weeds that emerge with the sorghum crop
  • Crop safety due to built-in herbicide tolerance

Zest™ WDG provides effective control of yield-limiting grass weeds, including crabgrass, barnyardgrass, signalgrass and panicum. When used on sorghum varieties containing the DuPont™ Inzen™ herbicide tolerance sorghum trait, Zest™ WDG handles postemergence grass control to reduce yield-robbing populations of annual grass weeds.

Proven Performance

Field trials show Zest™ WDG is effective against grass weeds that can reduce grain sorghum yield by as much as 20 percent.

Zest™ WDG uses a proven herbicide active ingredient that has never been available for sorghum. When used with grain sorghum carrying the Inzen™ herbicide tolerance trait, growers have more options for controlling grass weeds, plus the inherent crop safety provided by built-in herbicide tolerance. And Zest™ WDG offers outstanding crop rotation and recropping flexibility.

For best results, include Zest™ WDG in a weed-control program that includes a soil residual herbicide such as one of the
DuPont™ Cinch® brand herbicides applied at or just after planting, followed by Zest™ WDG after crop emergence.

Best Practices

Please note: Before applying Zest™ WDG to sorghum with the Inzen™ trait, growers and applicators must complete a stewardship training module.

The proprietary formulation of Zest™ WDG can be applied for postemergence grass control following a preemergence, soil-applied herbicide. Apply Zest™ WDG to emerged grain sorghum containing the Inzen™ herbicide tolerance trait that is 4 to 20 inches tall. Zest™ WDG can be tank-mixed with other herbicides, insecticides and fungicides labeled for use on grain sorghum to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Check the label for details.

Do not use Zest™ WDG on sorghum without the Inzen™ herbicide tolerance sorghum trait, since severe crop injury will occur.

Zest™ WDG is included in the DuPont™ Crop Protection Plus® product cost replacement program. Crop Protection Plus® provides herbicide replacement credit when a treated field becomes uneconomical to harvest due to drought, hail, flood, frost/freeze or fire during the growing season in which the herbicide was applied.
