(NAFB) – Corn harvest in the Midwest faced a lot of challenges in 2020, but overall, it came out ahead in many areas. Tim Dahl is an agronomy service representative with Syngenta. From an agronomic perspective, his home territory of southern Minnesota had the fewest challenges it’s seen in years.
That doesn’t mean farmers in southern Minnesota didn’t have any challenges, especially when it came to weed resistance.
Dahl says now is the time of year for farmers to evaluate what worked in the previous growing season and find things they can do better in 2021.
One of the things growers will need in their arsenal for 2021 is Acuron® herbicide.
To find out what an extra 5 to 15 bushels an acre with Acuron corn herbicide* could mean for your revenue potential, try Syngenta’s online calculator.

Acuron yield advantage range is based on 2016 Syngenta and university trials comparing Acuron to Corvus®, Resicore®, SureStart® II and Verdict® herbicide applied preemergence and at full label rates.
