Quick Facts

  • Fits your busy schedule – Delays happen. Fortunately, SureStart II offers the flexibility to spray corn from preplant to early postemergence, helping overcome the unexpected.

  • Proven to perform – SureStart II protects yield potential by providing dependable control of more than 60 broadleaf weeds and grasses, including marestail, common and giant ragweed, waterhemp, pigweed, and glyphosate-, triazine- and ALS-resistant weeds.

  • Effectively manage resistance – SureStart II contains three, non-glyphosate modes of action to control weeds three ways, giving corn the clean start it needs.

  • Program options – Used as a powerful one- or two-pass weed control program.

  • Long-lasting residual control – Protects against emerging weeds for up to six weeks, provides a wide window for post-emergent herbicide applications.

  • Consistent broadleaf weed control across variable climate conditions (cold and dry conditions) allows for flexibility of application.

  • Flexibilty to spray weeds up to 11-inch corn.

Application flexibility adds value. Weather, equipment and scheduling can cause timely delays. SureStart II herbicide can be applied from preplant through early postmergence, providing growers with the flexibility to overcome the unexpected. Surestart II is tank mix compatible with glyphosate, atrazine, 2,4-D and other commonly-used herbicides (refer to label for complete list). SureStart II doesn't contain atrazine so it's ideal for use in atrazine-restricted areas, and can be used in one- or two-pass weed control programs.

Unexpected application delay? No problem. SureStart® II herbicide has you covered.

According to university research, using a two-pass weed control program with SureStart® II followed by glyphosate can provide an average of 7 percent additional yield per acre when compared with glyphosate alone. SureStart II controls early season weeds that compete for sun, water and nutrients. Up to six weeks of residual control maximizes glyphosate spray window and improves effectiveness of post spray application made on smaller, easier-to-control weeds.
