The spread of glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth has put extreme pressure on weed control systems and brought a renewed interest in the development of alternate herbicides for cotton. Since 2012, SePRO Corporation has worked in conjunction with the USDA and Cotton Incorporated to conduct research with Clemson University, the University of Georgia, North Carolina State University, the University of Tennessee, Mississippi State University, the University of Florida, the University of Arkansas and others as part of a Cooperative Research Program. The Brake F2 herbicide system has been developed to provide a sustainable herbicide strategy for cotton featuring a new mode of action with resistance management as a primary goal.
