TriVolt Herbicide FAQ

TriVolt Product Overview


What is TriVolt™ herbicide?

TriVolt™ herbicide is a preemergence corn herbicide. TriVolt offers growers powerful weed control with 3 different effective sites of action to control weeds with burndown and residual control through crop canopy in a variety of weather conditions.

How does TriVolt™ herbicide work?

TriVolt™ herbicide goes to work to burndown grass and broadleaf weeds, with residual control through canopy closure. TriVolt’s formula works through a variety of weather conditions. After a dry period, Isoxaflutole reactivates with as little as a half-inch of rain. Under wet conditions, Flufenecet’s low water solubility helps the herbicide formulation maintain grass activity. These features make TriVolt less sensitive to the random and sporadic nature of spring precipitation and provide an excellent opportunity for TriVolt to control weeds on your farm.





TriVolt Application and Use


How should TriVolt™ herbicide be applied?

Apply TriVolt™ herbicide as a broadcast spray in water or liquid fertilizers. TriVolt is also available to band onto the soil. Applications to corn after emergence should be made in water only. For complete application details, review the TriVolt herbicide label prior to application. The TriVolt herbicide label will be available pending EPA approval.

When should TriVolt™ herbicide be applied?

The TriVolt™ herbicide application window is from preplant burndown through preemergence. If weather or time conflicts postpone applications, TriVolt may be used after corn emergence through the 2-leaf collar growth stage (V2). For complete timing details, review the TriVolt label.

What rate of TriVolt™ herbicide should I use?

The TriVolt™ herbicide label will provide complete rate selection details (setup and maximum) use rates based on the characteristics of the soil.

Do I need to use adjuvants or surfactants with TriVolt™ herbicide?

TriVolt™ herbicide provides outstanding residual weed control without the use of adjuvants. Consider adding TriVolt with Roundup Brand Agricultural Herbicides, Atrazine and/or DiFlexx® herbicide is an outstanding burndown program prior to crop emergence. However, Crop Oil Concentrate (COC) or Methylated Seed Oil (MSO) can enhance burndown of emerged weeds 6 inches in height or less in reduced and no-till systems prior to crop emergence.





TriVolt Product Safety


Is TriVolt™ herbicide safe for my crops?

The Crop Safety Innovation (CSI) Safener in TriVolt™ herbicide contributes to its broad compatibility with popular field corn hybrids. The CSI Safener enables plants to better withstand herbicidal activity, which can lead to improved plant health. This safener has both soil and foliar uptake, which makes the safener active in both pre- and early post-applications through V2 corn.

Is the safener in TriVolt™ herbicide also active on other chemistries?

The CSI Safener imparts additional protection and reduces symptoms from certain herbicides used in a tankmix or used postemergence in the early stages of corn growth.

What are the crop rotation restrictions with TriVolt™ herbicide?

You can replant with field corn immediately after a TriVolt™ herbicide application (and corn grown for silage), wheat after four months and soybeans after nine months. Certain crops sensitive to the components in TriVolt, such as sugar beets and others, have longer rotational intervals after use of the herbicide. Most other crops can be planted 17 months after an application of TriVolt. Plant-back intervals specific to various crops are outlined in greater detail on the TriVolt label.
