Regiment, a new herbicide from Valent, will be available to rice producers for 2002. The herbicide is similar to Londax in its mode of action. Regiment controls many troublesome rice weeds including hemp sesbania, jointvetch and rice flatsedge. The herbicide has also demonstrated excellent activity on large escaped barnyardgrass. However, it is weak on sprangletop, fall panicum and broadleaf signalgrass. Regiment tank-mixes well with many rice herbicides. Consult the label for specific tank mixes.
