Talinor Approved for Use in Wheat and Barley

Talinor herbicide from Syngenta has received federal registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, giving wheat and barley growers a new option for managing weed resistance and controlling damaging broadleaf weeds in 2017, pending individual state registrations.

"Yield-robbing weeds infest wheat and barley fields, compete with crops and can ultimately impact yield potential and crop quality," said Don Porter, herbicide technical product lead, Syngenta. "Talinor helps protect yield and profit potential, while offering growers a new tool to help manage weed resistance."

Talinor contains the company's newest active ingredient in cereal herbicides, bicyclopyrone, combined with bromoxynil. With its two active ingredients and two modes of action, this new herbicide delivers excellent standalone control of resistant and other difficult-to-control broadleaf weeds, like kochia and Russian thistle.

"Once resistance has been confirmed, it can remain in the weed population for decades," said Nathan Popiel, a Syngenta agronomic service representative in North Dakota. "If growers wait until herbicide resistance is confirmed in their field, the ability to manage their weeds may become more difficult. Talinor is an important tool for controlling troublesome weeds, particularly those that have become resistant to ALS-inhibitor, synthetic auxin and glyphosate herbicides."

In addition to flexible crop rotation and a wide application window, Talinor provides excellent tank-mix flexibility, and is an ideal mix partner with Axial® brand herbicides for one-pass grass and broadleaf control. Talinor also is conveniently packaged with CoAct

additive to deliver optimum performance.

"Syngenta understands the challenges cereal growers face and works diligently to provide the solutions that will make cereal growing simpler and more profitable," said Porter. "We are constantly working to make sure we are providing wheat and barley growers with a comprehensive portfolio of top-performing herbicides."

Talinor will be an ideal fit for growers in North Dakota and also will be available to growers in the surrounding Northern Plains states, as well as the Pacific Northwest. State registrations for Talinor are still pending.
