One of the biggest agrochemical companies in the world, UPL has got the approval from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the US to make changes in the label language of Interline herbicide from use in the “LibertyLink system” to those systems in which there are “glufosinate-resistant traits.”

Elaborating more about the extension, UPL’ s marketing manager, Corn and Soybean Herbicides, Tom Mudd, said, “The expansion enables Interline to be used on all glufosinate-resistant production systems, in addition to the LibertyLink systems. Farmers today need the flexibility to achieve their production goals, with products they can trust. Interline offers best-in-class performance for business-minded growers.” 

Interline herbicides now will be used on Enlist E3 soybeans along with the LibertyLink-GT27 soybeans. With the new label, farmers and growers will be able to explore additional options to meet EPA herbicide requirements in these crops. This would also help retailers manage their inventories for the end customers. 

“As the industry continues to evolve, UPL continues to provide unique product solutions for all U.S. growers. Through this expansion of the label registration, Interline herbicide can be used on a broader percentage of U.S. row crop acres for the convenience of growers,” added Mudd. 

Under the updated label, the Interline will also be applied to control the access of weeds across several crops, including canola, cotton, soybeans, corn, and sugar beets. The approval has been given to many states including Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
