Syngenta names new broadleaf herbicide for cereals

Syngenta announced Talinor as the name of its newest cereals broadleaf herbicide. It contains the company's newest active ingredient in cereal herbicides, bicyclopyrone, combined with bromoxynil. Together, these two active ingredients will deliver excellent standalone control of resistant and other tough-to-control broadleaf weeds, including kochia and Russian thistle. Syngenta anticipates EPA registration in late 2016, with first use targeted for the 2017 growing season.

"Talinor is a selective, post-emergence herbicide developed to control broadleaf weeds in all varieties of barley, spring wheat (including durum), and winter wheat," said Gigi Arino, cereal herbicides product lead, Syngenta. "Talinor is an important tool for controlling troublesome weeds, particularly those that have become resistant to ALS-inhibitor and auxin herbicides."

Upon registration, Syngenta anticipates Talinor will control more than 50 broadleaf weeds, including kochia, mayweed chamomile, Russian thistle and wild buckwheat. It provides offers tank-mix flexibility and is an ideal mix partner with other grass herbicides for one-pass grass and broadleaf control. It is packaged with CoAct+ adjuvant to deliver optimum performance. Additionally, Talinor is absorbed quickly through foliage for excellent rainfastness and offers a wide application window from the two-leaf to pre-boot stage of the crop.

"Talinor delivers quick, efficient knockdown of damaging weeds to help protect yield and profit potential, while offering cereal growers a new tool to help manage weed resistance," Arino said. "This new broadleaf herbicide will be an ideal fit for growers in North Dakota, and will also be available to growers in the surrounding Northern Plains states, as well as the Pacific Northwest."

University trials and Syngenta Grow More Experience sites will showcase Talinor this summer.
