Anthem® MAXX herbicide from FMC is a concentrated formulation that offers growers superior control and long-lasting residual control with a dramatically lower use rate in both corn and soybeans.
Anthem MAXX herbicide also provides growers a wide application window and helps them control a spectrum of broadleaves, including ALS-, triazine- and glyphosate-resistant weeds like waterhemp, Palmer pigweed and others. Tough grasses such as foxtails, crabgrass and fall panicum can’t keep up with its impressive residual either.
Anthem MAXX herbicide comes in an easy-to-handle formulation that’s easily and effectively tank mixed with burndown, preplant and preemergence herbicides, glyphosate, post herbicides and liquid fertilizers. It often follows Authority® brand herbicides in soybeans to provide season long, overlapping residual coverage.
