Sortan™ IS Corn Herbicide for Removing Early Season Weeds in Corn

  • New DuPont Sortan™ IS corn herbicide is now registered in Western Canada
  • Growers can now receive powerful and extended control of broadleaf and grassy weeds in corn

Saskatoon, SK - March 13, 2017 – Western Canadian corn growers now have a new tool to remove early season weed pressure to help maximize yield and profits in corn. DuPont Crop Protection announced today that the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) in Canada has granted approval for registration of DuPont™ Sortan™ IS herbicide.

New DuPont™ Sortan™ IS herbicide will allow growers to control tough, yield robbing weeds, such as volunteer Roundup Ready® canola, wild buckwheat, redroot pigweed (including triazine resistant biotypes), lamb's quarters, green foxtail, barnyard grass, and quackgrass, to keep corn weed-free during the critical weed-free period to maximize yield and profits. 

“Sortan™ IS offers an additional mode of action to glyphosate, making it a great tool for effective resistance management,” says Kirsten Ratzlaff, pulse, oilseed & western row crop market segment manager at  DuPont Crop Protection. “Growers will see great value in controlling weeds in their fields today while helping to manage resistance for years to come.”

Sortan™ IS offers significant application flexibility, as it can be applied pre-emergent or post-emergent, and provides extended control throughout the critical weed free period. For optimum weed control, it is recommended that Sortan™ IS be tank-mixed with glyphosate herbicide at 900 g ai/ha for control of additional weeds. 

Sortan™ IS will be available at local retailers in Western Canada for the 2017 season.
