Georgia Corn: POST Herbicide Acuron GT Receives Registration

Syngenta recently received registration for a new postemergence field corn herbicide sold under the trade name of Acuron GT.  Acuron GT is very similar to Halex GT but it contains an additional active ingredient (bicyclopyrone).



Syngenta has several similar field corn herbicides in the market and I have summarized them in Table 1.  I have only had the opportunity to evaluate Acuron GT for 1 year (Figure 1) so I would encourage any interested GA growers to use it on a limited basis until I can get more data in 2021. 

A complete copy of the Acuron GT label can be downloaded here: here.
