An agronomist’s experience with Acuron


My name is Patrick O’Neil I’m a CCA
agronomist and custom application operator at TCO Agromart in Selby. This
year was our first year using the new product Acuron, we custom applied roughly two thousand acres of Acuron this year and we were
very happy with the way the product performed. We found four actives to be
important aspect of Acuron. It helped our confidence level going into the
season that we had four actives working to control a broad spectrum of weeds
while also protecting against resistance. And the one pass system, when it
works as well as it did this year, it provides great value to the grower. It
gets them through their critical weed free period, as well as, beyond and all
season long, and at the end of the year they’re happy not to see any weeds in
their field. A lot of times we tell a guy when we go to spray something pre-emerge and it’s it’s designed as a one pass system, you say plan for two pass but hope for one, and and this year there was one pass pretty much across the board. So
guys were we’re really happy to kind of almost going in anticipating a respray
because oftentimes you know you don’t get the weather you don’t get the
activating rains and you don’t get away with it. But guys were really pleased and
I think is gonna be more uptake next year, especially when you drive by the
fields and the guys are looking at their fields and even the edges where there’s
no canopy closure or anything like that protecting that soil it’s still still
staying clean.
