It’s no secret that the introduction of novel herbicide active ingredients has slowed recently, but that at the same time a plethora of premix products has proliferated. Herbicide premixes often can be confusing with respect to component active ingredients, product equivalents, application rates, etc. This interactive table was designed to allow users to determine
equivalent application rates of various corn herbicide premixes.
The first column lists the commercial or trade name of the herbicide and its formulation. The second column also provides the amount of active ingredient or acid equivalent of each component per gallon or pound of formulated product. The third column lists an application rate for each premix. We attempted to select application rates that were representative for Illinois, but you may want to select a different rate (see below for directions). The fourth column indicates how much of each active ingredient is applied at the rate listed in the third column. Note that while rates of commercial products are usually expressed in ounces, pounds, pints, quarts, etc. of product per acre, active ingredients are usually expressed in units of pounds active ingredient or acid equivalent per acre. Finally, the last column lists product equivalents for each premix component when the premix is applied at the rate listed in the third column.
The application rates listed in the tables are meant to be used as a reference; for some of these herbicides the application rates will vary depending on soil texture, organic matter, weed species and size, etc. Always consult the respective herbicide label for appropriate application rates.
All the cells
in this table are active, that is, values can be changed in any
cell. We suggest that you change numbers only in column D - "If
you apply" (blue numbers). Entering your own values
in this column (followed by pressing the “enter” key)
will recalculate the amount of acid equivalent (shown in column G) and product equivalents (shown in column K) that would be applied
at that product rate . By clicking on the “Refresh”
