Wilbur-Ellis’ Employ Approved As Tank-Mix Partner With Select Row Crop Herbicides


Wilbur-Ellis Agribusiness and Plant Health Care are pleased to announce that Employ, an advanced biochemical plant health promoter, has been certified by leading crop protection companies for tank-mixing with a select group of row crop herbicides. Used successfully for many years in fruit and vegetable production to improve yield and crop quality, Employ is expected to be adopted by soybean, cotton and corn growers seeking to maximize yields by applying Employ in conjunction with early-season herbicide applications.

Employ Boosts Crop Productivity, Yield

When applied on the plant foliage in early growth stages, Employ initiates a Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR) response that turns on the plants’ own growth and stress-defense capabilities. Roots grow more vigorously, and plants are more resilient under stress created by disease, insects, pathogens and nematodes as well as when facing environmental challenges such as flooding, drought, heat and cold temperatures. As a result, crop quality and yields are improved.

“In recent years, farmers have faced more environmental stresses from weather extremes and the pests and pathogens that come with those extremes. An application of Employ, over-the-top in the initial herbicide application stimulates the plants’ natural defenses reducing the impact of crop stress throughout the growing season and helping them deliver higher yields at harvest. We’re excited to offer this technology to corn, soybean and cotton growers for the 2023 season,” said Chris Wooley, Wilbur-Ellis Specialty Actives Portfolio Manager.
