Brake Program Approach

Brake provides grower flexibility. Take control using your own preferred pigweed herbicide program. Brake Herbicide is applied at planting, with another residual such as Diuron®, Reflex®, Warrant® or Cotoran®. Follow with a postemergence overlapping residual within 18 days after planting. Brake extends your pigweed control during the season. Scout fields and if necessary apply overlapping residuals with additional postemergence applications.

Brake represents a unique mode-of-action (a Group 12 Herbicide), for use in cotton to strengthen resistance management and provide control of glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth along with many other broadleaf weeds and grasses. Brake has exceptional safety to cotton with extended residual weed control which allows farmers to get their cotton off to a great start and maximize yield potential. Brake Herbicide provides exceptional preemergencence control and excels under wet conditions giving you assurance when it is too wet to get back in the fields.

Plan Your Program, Work Your Program!

Program for overall weed control and resistance management.
  • Start Weed Free, Stay Weed Free
  • Use multiple modes of action
  • Overlap residuals


  1. Use the most effective burndown herbicide(s) and/or tillage to start clean
  2. Use Brake as your foundation preemergence at 16 fl. oz./acre paired with another residual preemergence for maximum spectrum and consistency of control, plus a burndown product such as Gramoxone® to ensure a clean start
  3. Apply the most effective postemergence product(s) paired with residual within 18 days after planting to eliminate escapes and boost length of residual activity
  4. Scout and apply the most effective postemergence product(s) paired with residual to eliminate escapes and boost length of residual activity (if needed)
  5. Scout and apply with the most effective postemergence LAYBY product(s) to eliminate any escapes (if needed)
