TACKLE™ Herbicide From Cheminova, Inc. Registered For Use In Soybeans

Research Triangle Park, NC – Cheminova, Inc. has received registration for TACKLE™ Herbicide. TACKLE is a selective, postemergence broadleaf herbicide that offers effective and flexible preplant burndown and postemergence control of annual and perennial grass and broadleaf weeds in Round-Up Ready® soybeans.

“TACKLE has glyphosate and imazethapyr as the active ingredients,” says Dr. Jim Barrentine, Technical Services Director for Cheminova. “This means that TACKLE will provide the effectiveness of glyphosate, along with the combined residual control of imazethapyr.”

Barrentine says TACKLE is very effective against broadleaf and grass weeds found in no-till situations. “This product has just the right ratio of glyphosate and imazethapyr which means no additional glyphosate has to be added to achieve the right mix for effective control, farmers will find the ease of application it offers is a tremendous advantage,” he says.

Barrentine points out that because TACKLE can be applied preplant burndown, preemergence and/or postemergence, it has tremendous application flexibility. “It can also be tank-mixed with many registered residual grass herbicides for additional control,” he says.

The product is packaged in two-and-one-half and 265-gallon containers. For more information, visit www.cheminova.us.com.
