Syngenta announced today that it has a new corn herbicide under development called Storen. Upon approval by the Environmental Protection Agency for registration, which is anticipated by the 2024 growing season, the new pre- and post-emergence grass and broadleaf corn herbicide will give growers up to 3 weeks longer residual weed control than other leading corn herbicides.
“Storen was specifically formulated to provide maximum residual weed control by the four active ingredients working together to provide consistency of control and length of residual control compared to other competitive residual corn herbicides,” said Syngenta Technical Product Lead Mark Kitt.
Upon registration, Storen will be the newest addition to the Syngenta bicyclopyrone (BIR) containing brands. Storen combines four residual active ingredients – BIR, mesotrione, S-metolachlor, and pyroxasulfone – plus the crop safener benoxacor in one premix. The combination of these four active ingredients work together to provide weed control of barnyardgrass, foxtail species, waterhemp, Palmer amaranth, giant ragweed, common ragweed, Russian thistle, Cocklebur and Morningglory species.
The company also said Storen will control broadleaf weed-resistant biotypes tolerant to acetolactate synthase, triazine and glyphosate herbicides.
