Bayer releases new product to fight waterhemp, Palmer Amaranth

Bayer has released a new herbicide to help farmers fight waterhemp and Palmer Amaranth, two of the most problematic weeds they face.  

In a release, Bayer says Diflufenican has been used for several years in Europe to manage broadleaf weeds in crops like lentils and winter cereals, but this is the first time the product will be used in North America. 

Diflufenican will be introduced mid-decade under the brand name Convintro pending EPA approval and will be available to growers for burndown and pre-emergence applications.
