The Power of REACTIVATION
As unpredictable as weather and weeds can be, their challenge remains consistent. Growers need a product that can withstand a variety of weather conditions and persistent weeds. When weather conditions become dry, residual control in most herbicides stops working and doesn’t start again, resulting in extra time and money invested to control early season weeds. That’s why growers who want to be tough on weeds rely on reactivation.
There is a scientific difference between residual control and reactivation. It just takes a half-inch of rain to initiate reactivation. Weeds that have emerged will absorb the herbicide with soil moisture, and once reactivated, it will go back and control any new weeds that may have emerged. It will also prevent new weed growth.
Grower Lowell Seagren of Ridott, Ill. understands the benefit of reactivation. “It's important to have reactivation because so many herbicides have a short lifetime. If you have a problem, it's mandatory to re-spray which is another added cost,“he says.
And Corvus® offers just that—reactivation.
It is a unique model of herbicide. Whereas conventional herbicides rely solely on a residual model, Corvus® offers burndown and residual control in addition to its reactivation feature. With almost 10 years of proven performance, Corvus® is the No. 1 pre-emergence herbicide brand of choice in the country.
Darin Keller, a grower in Wilber, Nebraska, explained, “You’ll see little button weeds and grass come up, and they start to brown instantly and turn and go the other way. It’s been a good product.”
Grower Jerry Elder in Morganfield, Kentucky, feels the same way. “Since we’ve been using Corvus®, I have not seen any problem whether we get rain or not. There might be some small weeds coming through the field and when it rained then two or three days later, you’d walk out there and they’re gone. So it’s been great. The best chemical I’ve ever worked with since I’ve been farming,” said Elder.
