EPA approves label updates for Laudis herbicide

Just in time for the 2009 growing season, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved several label updates for Laudis herbicide. Updates include the following:

· If necessary, a second application of Laudis can be made on field corn, white corn or popcorn seven days from the initial application, down from the previous 14-day requirement.
· High surfactant oil concentrates (HSOCs) can be used with Laudis as alternatives to methylated seed oil (MSO) surfactants. The label update also includes guidelines for using HSOCs with glyphosate herbicides.
· In most situations, growers can now rotate to sugar beets and certain dry beans 10 months after Laudis application, down from the previous 18-month requirement.

Laudis, introduced by Bayer CropScience in 2008, is used to control grass and broadleaf weeds such as ragweeds, lambsquarters, velvetleaf, waterhemp and woolly cupgrass in all cornfields.
