Halex

Halex® GT herbicide is Glyphosate with Residual™, outperforming and out-yielding any other post-emergence, straight glyphosate corn herbicide program with just one application.

Value

  • Halex GT saves growers time and money by delivering control of broadleaf weeds and grasses in one pass.
  • Glyphosate resistance is a real and growing problem. Halex GT contains three modes of action to combat the onset of weed resistance.

Convenience

  • Halex GT provides the best opportunity for one-pass weed control with a single product in glyphosate-tolerant corn.
  • For growers planning a two-pass program, Halex GT is the post-emergence partner of choice following an application of a Bicep® brand, Dual® brand, Princep® brand, Lumax® EZ, Lexar® EZ or Zemax® herbicides.
  • Flexible post-emergence application means no more waiting for more weeds to emerge before application.
  • One application provides residual control to keep fields weed-free from spike to crop canopy.

Performance

  • Halex GT is labeled to control more than 90 broadleaf weeds and grasses, including ragweed, waterhemp, lambsquarters, pigweed and foxtail.
  • Trials conducted between 2003 and 2008 demonstrated Halex GT provides excellent crop safety to the crop when used according to the label.

Longer-lasting weed control with Halex GT

  • By combining Glyphosate with Residual, Halex GT provides superior control of the toughest broadleaf weeds and grasses, such as lambsquarters, velvetleaf and giant foxtail and protects yield loss due to multiple flushes of weeds during the season.

Halex GT vs. Glyphosate

Halex GT herbicide is Glyphosate with Residual™ and provides residual activity to control multiple weed flushes in one pass, which virtually eliminates the need for additional herbicide applications to keep fields weed-free and protect yield potential.

Halex GT vs. glyphosate

When growers wait until weeds have emerged to apply glyphosate, corn plants become stressed because of weed competition for light, water and nutrients. As seen above, yellowing and uneven stands are just some of the downfalls associated with using glyphosate alone.

Results from trials conducted between 2003 and 2008 confirm Halex GT outperforms and out-yields both one and two applications of glyphosate. For one-pass, post-emergence weed control in glyphosate-tolerant corn, Halex GT is the ideal choice.

Bottom Line: Controlling weeds with glyphosate alone cannot be done without increased time and expenses for multiple glyphosate applications. Halex GT provides residual control of the toughest broadleaf weeds and grasses in one pass, giving growers more time and resources to use for other farming needs.

Halex GT vs. SureStart and TripleFLEX

Residual Control of Halex GT Proves it’s Superior to TripleFLEX and SureStart

Many competitors are trying to position their products against the industry-leading post-emergence corn herbicide, Halex® GT, which combines glyphosate with the power of residual control.

TripleFLEX®, a herbicide from Monsanto, is simply the same product as SureStart® from Dow with a different name.

Both TripleFLEX and SureStart are touted to provide long-lasting residual control of a broad spectrum of grasses and broadleaf weeds, but these products must be tank mixed with glyphosate for complete weed control and they provide very limited residual control.

Halex GT vs. Surestart

2009 University trials prove SureStart and glyphosate cannot match the powerful broad-spectrum weed and grass control of Halex GT + atrazine

University trials conducted in 2009 compared the broadleaf weed and grass control of Halex GT and SureStart. TripleFLEX contains the same formulation mixture and ratio as Dow’s SureStart herbicide.

Halex GT was applied at 3.6 pts./A + 0.25-0.5 lbs atrazine. SureStart was applied at 1.75 pts./A + Durango® at 24 oz/A Data from University trials; Velvetleaf: WI, OH (2), MI. Lambsquarters: WI, OH (2), IA, MN, MI, IL. P. Smartweed: WI, OH (2). Pigweed: OH, MO, MI, MN, IA. All weed control evaluations were mid to late season; 45 – 77 DAT.

Bottom Line: Halex GT provides unmatched performance delivering a more convenient and higher yielding alternative to any other post-emergence, glyphosate-tolerant corn herbicide program. Ask your retailer or local Syngenta sales representative about how using Halex GT will enhance your weed control program.
