Frequently Asked Questions about Resistance Management
Does Rinskor™ active have a good fit to Integrated Weed Management?
Rinskor is an effective herbicide that will enable diversified weed management. A multiple mode of action herbicide program must contain two or more herbicide modes of action during the crop growing cycle to provide effective control of weeds to manage resistance.
Rinskor is a broad spectrum herbicide with an alternative mode of action, which offers effective control of driver weeds, including resistant biotypes. Differentiated characteristics of Rinskor make it a valuable tool for use in an integrated weed management (IWM) program. Its high post-emergence efficiency, alternative mode of action, broad spectrum of activity, including resistant weeds and low use rates make Rinskor an excellent fit in IWM programs.
Rinskor represents the latest member of the unique synthetic auxin herbicide chemotype, the arylpicolinates. As an arylpicolinate, Rinskor exhibits unique molecular interaction to auxin receptors as compared to other auxin herbicides and an alternative mode of action for use in rice and other crops.
What are the recommendations to reduce the risk of weed resistance to Rinskor?
There are many standard, proven tactics to reduce the development of weed resistance including, but not limited to:
- using a herbicide program approach with multiple modes of action
- making timely applications of Rinskor and other herbicides
- monitoring treated areas for weeds before and after applications
- incorporating other agronomic and cultural practices to reduce weed populations
