Current weed control recommendations rely heavily on the use of multiple herbicide groups for broad spectrum weed control and preventing development of herbicide resistant weeds. Sweet corn growers, as compared with other specialty crop growers, are fortunate in this regard as they have a fairly diverse and growing list of herbicides from which to choose. Recently, the herbicides Acuron and Acuron Flexi from Syngenta, Anthem and Anthem Maxx from FMC, and Revulon Q from Dupont were approved for use in sweet corn. Ingredients in these products represent five different herbicide groups (HG). The purpose of this trial was to evaluate these new herbicides for sweet corn crop safety and weed control effectiveness to provide information on how they might best fit in a weed control program.
