Weed control was a big topic for FMC Corporation at the National Farm Machinery Show last week, and I talked with district manager Tyler Tuttle about how Marvel™ herbicide provides soybean growers with an aggressive tank-mix partner for maximum postemergence control of glyphosate-resistant weeds.
“Marvel is a post emerge, broadleaf herbicide with a very broad spectrum,” said Tuttle. “Use it to kill really tough to control weeds, like lambs quarters, velvetleaf, waterhemp, and pigweed.”
Since Marvel was introduced in 2013, Tuttle says it has become an effective tool for growers in a weed management program to control resistance. “Performance has exceeded all expectations,” he said. “Marvel allows us to put on a product postemerge to help extend residual and knock out any weeds that might sneak through and it also allows us to mix up modes of action. That’s the key to weed control today.”
