DuPont™ Velpar® AlfaMax™ Gold Herbicide was developed specifically for alfalfa, providing both preemergence and postemergence control of yield-robbing weeds to help decrease competition so growers achieve maximum tonnage potential and cleaner, higher quality hay.
Weeds like annual pigweed, bluegrass, cheatgrass, chickweed, prickly lettuce, mustards and shepherd’s purse reduce yield and decrease quality and cleanliness of hay.
With a blend of two labeled alfalfa herbicides, Velpar® AlfaMax™ Gold delivers enhanced preemergence control and early postemergence activity on a broad spectrum of broadleaf weeds and grasses. Applied to dormant alfalfa, a single, cost-effective application of Velpar® AlfaMax™ Gold activates with winter snow or rain and reduces over winter weed and grass competition to help kick-start early season growth. Residual control decreases the need for spring and early summer herbicide applications, saving trips. Velpar® AlfaMax™ Gold Herbicide features advanced DuPont XP formulation technology, making it easier to mix and more accurate to measure for added convenience. The dry-flowable formulation is also less dusty and resuspends faster to minimize downtime after rain and wind delays.
