SureStart® – A Foundation Herbicide that Helps Maximize Yield Potential
Getting the most out of your herbicide-tolerant corn begins with a clean start. The combination of three powerful active ingredients in SureStart® herbicide was developed to give herbicide-tolerant corn the weed-free start it needs to realize its maximum yield and profit potential.
The True Cost of Uncontrolled Weeds
Weeds can cost you in many ways. From harboring damaging insects and diseases to sopping up the moisture and nutrients growing corn needs, weeds prevent your corn crop from realizing its maximum yield potential.
Giant ragweed alone, if left unchecked, can severely limit corn's yield potential. University research reveals that one giant ragweed can take up as much nitrogen as 8 row feet of corn, resulting in a 12 bu./A yield loss on acres where giant ragweed was uncontrolled.1
By minimizing weed competition for sunlight, moisture and nutrients at early developmental stages of corn growth, SureStart protects the yield potential of corn crops. On-farm trials show using a preemergence application of SureStart, followed by a post glyphosate treatment, provides an average of 7.7 percent more yield than a single post glyphosate treatment.2
