Maverick™ Corn Herbicide Earns EPA Registration for Broad Spectrum Weed Management
San Ramon, Calif., – July 20, 2022 – Valent U.S.A. has received EPA registration for Maverick™ Corn Herbicide, a powerful new tool for corn farmers in their fight against resistant weeds. Maverick equips growers with three effective modes of action for long-lasting, broad-spectrum control of problematic weeds, including waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, marestail and annual grasses, as well as application flexibility from preplant up to 18-inch corn, low use rates for easy in-field handling and mixing, and excellent compatibility with atrazine.
“Maverick provides use options that increase operational efficiencies and in-field performance,” says Erick Garcia, Maverick brand manager for Valent U.S.A. “Not only do the three modes of action make it a broad spectrum, long-lasting solution, Maverick also provides growers the operational flexibility they need to make the most of their weed management program.”
Combining three different modes of action (clopyralid, a Group 4 - Plant-Growth Inhibitors, mesotrione, a Group 27- HPPD Inhibitors, and pyroxasulfone, a Group 15 - Very-Long-Chain Fatty Acid (VLCFA) Inhibitors), makes Maverick an excellent choice for herbicide resistance management programs.
Maverick will be available later this year, pending state registrations. To learn more about Maverick, visit www.valent.com.
