Freestyle® for Soybeans: Power and Flexibility for Early-Season Weed Control
Tough weeds in your soybeans? Show them who’s boss, with new DuPont™ Freestyle® herbicide: powerful, flexible early-season weed control for any soybean production system.
DuPont™ Freestyle® herbicide makes early-season weed control in soybeans simple and effective. It provides enhanced residual control of grass and broadleaf weeds, even many of the most troublesome weeds, including Eastern black nightshade.
Tank-mixing Freestyle® with your choice of glyphosate will deliver all the benefits you expect with Guardian® with added control of key weeds, including nightshade.
Freestyle® fits any soybean production system and allows you to manage based on what’s best for you and your crop. After all, you’re the boss.
In IP soybeans, Freestyle® brings the added power of imazethapyr, which is highly effective on nightshade.
In GT soybeans, Freestyle® helps you time your in-crop glyphosate application for maximum effectiveness. By keeping your crop clean during the pre–3rd trifoliate stages, there’s no rush to spray your in-crop glyphosate application.
Broad-spectrum, Residual Season-long Weed Control
Freestyle® delivers broad-spectrum control of key annual grass and broadleaf weeds, including hard-to-kill weeds such as dandelion and late-germinating weeds like Eastern black nightshade.
A Long-term Approach to Weed Resistance in GT Soybeans
Glyphosate-resistant weeds are a reality today, with several species already confirmed. By contributing a second mode of action to your glyphosate-tolerant soybean production system, Freestyle® helps you manage your crop for today and for the future.
Broadleaf weeds. Dandelion, lamb’s-quarters, redroot pigweed, smartweed, lady’s-thumb, wild mustard, velvetleaf, common ragweed, wild buckwheat, Eastern black nightshade, cocklebur1.
Annual grasses. Green foxtail, yellow foxtail, barnyard grass, old witchgrass, proso millet.
Additional hard-to-kill weeds2. Annual sow thistle, prickly lettuce, yellow nutsedge3.
For a pre-plant burndown application, apply Freestyle® up to 30 days before planting with any glyphosate for burndown and residual control.
For a pre-emergence application, apply Freestyle® up to 30 days before planting in conventional, reduced tillage or no-till soybeans.

DuPont™ Ultim® herbicide is well-known for its control of annual grasses and quackgrass in field corn. These include barnyard grass, fall panicum, green foxtail, long-spined sandbur, old witchgrass, proso millet, quackgrass, redroot pigweed and yellow foxtail (suppression). Ultim® also controls black bullrush in lowbush blueberries.
Soybeans growers know they need to be on the lookout for late-emerging perennial broadleaf weeds. Those who choose DuPont™ Classic® herbicide can relax and let its residual activity take care of nutsedge, common ragweed, redroot pigweed, velvetleaf and dandelion.
