INFORMATION & IDEAS
Kurt Hembree, weed management farm advisor, University of California Cooperative Extension, Fresno County, shares five steps for orchard weed control that start in the fall and help provide season-long control.
Agronomist Jeff Pacheco recommends proactive disease-control programs to protect valuable almond crops, including Fontelis® fungicide to control Alternaria leaf spot and other damaging diseases.
Protect your vegetable crops from soil-borne disease including seedling blight and rot and Southern blight with DuPont™ Fontelis® fungicide to give them a good start.
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.
Lannate® SP insecticide helps control brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) infestations on selected fruit, vegetable and grain crops.
Around the globe, DuPont scientists work in concert with farmers, local businesses, governments, NGOs and others who know the “facts on the ground” in order to find the answers that will increase food protection and production.
Strategies for controlling herbicide-resistant weeds in corn and soybeans with a preplant foundation of burndown and residual herbicide.
Timely application of DuPont™ Fontelis® provides excellent control of target spot and other fungal diseases on tomatoes and other fruiting vegetables.
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.
Dermacor® X-100 seed treatment works immediately to protect rice against damage from rice water weevil and later-season stemborers to help crops achieve their maximum yield potential. Learn what rice industry leaders have to say about the benefits of planting seed treated with Dermacor® X-100.
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.
Soybean growers and agronomists report early, longer-lasting weed control, including control of glyphosate-tolerant or resistant weeds, with DuPont™ Envive® herbicide.
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.
A residual fall burndown herbicide application helps reduce weed seed production, manage early winter annuals and provide weed control into spring.
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.
The challenges we face in feeding the world will get only more daunting in the decades to come. But DuPont and its collaborators across the food chain are optimistic, as scientific innovations have already significantly enhanced the quality and quantity of food production.

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.
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.
Enhance performance of LibertyLink soybeans with Classic® postemergence herbicide.
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.
Foliar applications of Vydate® C-LV insecticide/nematicide can help maximize potato yield by extending the benefits of seed treatments and in-furrow applications.
Fontelis® fungicide protects valuable tree nut crops to improve productivity and profitability with powerful almond disease control.
Learn how a California grower uses Fontelis® fungicide to protect against lettuce drop losses.
DuPont is committed to working side-by-side with local populations to ensure that science is applied to local agriculture and food production for a more secure future for all.
Although science provides answers that can be applied universally, DuPont experience shows that solutions for local food systems must be developed at a community level.
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.
Tanos® in an integrated control strategy help protect tomato and pepper crops from bacterial disease.
There are three principles behind effective fungicide resistance management.
Know the difference between mode and site of action to plan weed-control programs that manage herbicide resistance.
The annual Peanut Profitability Awards are sponsored by DuPont Crop Protection and other supporters of strategies that increase peanut grower profitability and sustainability.
Post harvest applications are a smart weed management strategy.
DuPont defends against key potato pests, including, insects, nematodes, diseases and weeds, giving growers tools they need to optimize potato yield and quality. Count on DuPont to provide reliable, consistent control. (See product labels for crop/pest combinations controlled or suppressed.)
Wheat rust damage can cause a 60 percent yield loss if rust infects wheat at the flag leaf stage without treatment. Aproach® and Aproach® Prima fungicides help preserve yield potential.
Aproach® is a broad-spectrum fungicide that delivers more reliable corn disease control of both foliar and soil-borne fungal disease in corn, soybeans and wheat.
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.
Fungicide resistance is a growing concern for many soybean growers. Heather Marie Kelly, University of Tennessee, describes strategies for resistant frogeye leaf spot control.
Count on Resolve® Q to deliver focused weed control on contact.
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.
Effective seed treatment with DuPont™ Dermacor® X-100 can help control rice insects and increase yield.
Using a pest control product with a single active ingredient supports integrated pest management programs in tomatoes and other fruiting vegetables.
When weather conditions increase soybean white mold risk, a timely application of Aproach® fungicide can help control white mold to protect 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.
Field sanitation is an important part of season wrap-up. Prompt crop destruction ends production of disease inoculum and insects to help prevent spread to other host plants.
For DuPont, sustainable food production means more than expanding the food supply. It also encompasses social, economic and ecological considerations, such as infrastructure, storage, waste reduction and improving and preserving water quality—all of which are critical to achieving global food security.
