Different crops have different demands.

We also understand the challenges our farmers face when aiming to achieve these goals in a profitable, successful, and sustainable manner. With the climate changing, pests multiplying and resistance increasing, it is understandable that many of our farmers need to change and adapt.

With that being said, when it comes to the control of weeds on winter grains, we at Corteva Agriscience have created the Arylex® Portfolio.  This product offering which features Arylex® Active is designed to maximize your wheat yields.
