Zeneca Ag Products has successfully tested a new Touchdown non-selective herbicide in over-the-top applications on Roundup Ready crops. Zeneca anticipates registration of the new Touchdown for the 2001-growing season.

The current Touchdown 5 formulation has been widely used over RR soybeans and for burndown weed control, according to Bill Beutke, brand manager.

"The new Touchdown features a new, innovative glyphosate molecule optimized by a unique corn-based, balanced adjuvant system called IQ Technology," Beutke said.

In addition to RR corn and cotton, Beutke said it will be registered as a burn down application in more than 100 additional crops, including numerous horticultural crops.
