Bayer CropScience announced the 2015 approval and registration of DiFlexx herbicide by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The strength of dicamba is evident, as is the need for a reliable crop safener. In 2013 trials, dicamba controlled 97 percent of broadleaf weeds in corn.

DiFlexx controls tough weeds such as Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, ragweed and lambsquarter. It manages more than 100 annual and perennial weeds, including those resistant to glyphosate-, PPO- and ALS-based herbicides. A fit in both pre- and postemergence programs, DiFlexx has a wide window of application, from burndown to V10, for ensuring complete broadleaf weed control and flexibility. DiFlexx is tankmix compatible with Corvus or Balance Flexx herbicides from burndown to V2, and post with Laudis or Capreno herbicides for an extra mode of action on broadleaf weeds.

The CSI Safener in DiFlexx enables corn plants to better withstand herbicides, which can lead to increased root growth and plant health. The same safener has a history of successfully minimizing crop response, as it has been part of the Corvus and Balance Flexx herbicide forumulations. The safener enables DiFlexx registration for field corn, field corn grown for silage and seed corn, and it can also be used on fallow croplands.
