April 16, 2013, Mississauga, Ont – Western Canadian potato farmers and Canadian processing tomato growers now have a new tool for weed control and more resistance management. Titus PRO is a new DuPont post-emergent herbicide solution that combines Prism SG (rimsulfuron) and a 75 per cent DF metribuzin into one co-pack.

“Titus PRO provides exceptional post-emergent control of a broad spectrum of grassy and broadleaf weeds, and its multiple modes of action make it an excellent resistance management tool,” says Ray Janssen, market segment manager for horticulture with DuPont Crop Protection.

Packaged in a 40 acre case, Titus PRO delivers multiple modes of action – Group 2 and Group 5 – in one co-pack, providing the industry with a resistance management tool.

“Growers have always appreciated the control of annual grasses they’ve achieved using Prism SG. Now with the additional power of metribuzin, they’ll see enhanced residual control of a far wider range of broadleaf weeds as well,” says Janssen. “We’re pleased to be able to deliver this co-pack of powerful performance and convenience to the largest horticultural market in Canada.”

Titus PRO controls grassy weeds such as barnyard grass, quackgrass and lamb’s-quarters and broadleaf weeds such as cocklebur, common chickweed and post-emergent stinkweed. A full listing of registered uses is available on the product’s label.
