Maximize the Yield and Quality of Corn and Soybean Crops
You can count on DuPont to provide you with reliable, field-proven herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. Whether you’re growing IP soybeans or glyphosate-tolerant corn or soybeans, we can help.
Corn and soybeans are the heart of crop production in Ontario and Quebec, with a rising profile on the Prairies. Growers look to DuPont for the crop protection they need, through our complete line of high-quality herbicides, fungicides and insecticides.
In recent years, DuPont has added to the level of protection we can offer for your corn and soybean crops. DuPont™ Engarde™ pre-emergence corn herbicide has continued its strong rate of adoption. It provides twice the protection against hard-to-kill broadleaf and grassy weeds delivering both enhanced early and residual control.
DuPont™ Acapela® fungicide is an advanced strobilurin fungicide for disease control in cereals, corn, soybeans and dry edible beans. With its broad-spectrum disease control with superior uptake, movement and post-infection properties, Acapela® fungicide fits the way you farm.
DuPont™ Destra™ IS Herbicide is now registered in Eastern Canada for use in field corn. Destra™ IS is a post-emergence corn herbicide that delivers unsurpassed convenience and flexibility, making weed control hassle free. With two modes of action and a user-friendly dry formulation, it is the perfect glyphosate tank mix partner for one-pass broad-spectrum knockdown and residual control. Destra™ IS provides excellent crop safety even for short season areas.
New Guardian® MAX soybean herbicide delivers early, residual control of hard-to-kill weeds, including dandelion, nutsedge and wild carrot. Guardian® MAX can be applied as a burndown for any type of soybean or in-crop post-emergence on GT soybeans, including Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™.
Under the DuPont Head Start program, eligible corn, soybean and cereal herbicides come with up to $7.50 per acre in instant discounts. These discounts apply to all orders received by March 31, 2018. Use this link to view additional information.

Acapela® Application Timing for Corn
Diseases in corn such as Northern corn leaf blight can significantly reduce corn yield. Learn when to apply Acapela® as a preventative treatment for corn.
Managing Your Workload
A pre-plant or pre-emergent herbicide program in IP soybeans can help you manage your workload and save you money. Having enough residual to carry you through the busy spring season lets you control yield-robbing weeds early. And sometimes, one spray can be enough. Hear one grower’s experience.
Pesticide & Container Disposal
A voluntary, industry-led organization and clear best practices give growers clear direction on recycling and disposing of pesticide containers and surplus product. Here are some tips on proper disposal.
No-Till Soybeans | IP Soybeans
Vertical tillage sets the stage for higher yields in no-till soybeans. And pre-plant weed control helps keep premiums in sight. DuPont™ Guardian® brand herbicides can help.
- Dandelion Control
Acapela® Application Timing for Soybean
Foliar diseases in soybeans can significantly reduce soybean yield. Learn when to apply Acapela® as a preventative treatment for soybeans diseases.
Make Your First Spray Count
Adding a pre-emerge herbicide application with residual control in your glyphosate-tolerant or IP soybean crop buys you time and quite possibly boosts yield by keeping the crop clean early on.
Growers Get Tank-Mix Flexibility
New recommendations from the Pest Management Regulatory Agency give growers new options for tank-mixing crop protection products. This allows growers to use unregistered tank mixes subject to some conditions.
