Summary

​​Three new non-GMO herbicide-tolerant sorghum technologies for over-the-top grass control will be available to growers in 2022: Inzen sorghum from Corteva, Igrowth sorghum from Advanta, and Double Team sorghum from S&W (Sorghum Partners). Each is unique and will have its own strengths and weaknesses. The herbicides used for each technology are being compared on different grass and weed species in trials sponsored by the United Sorghum Checkoff Program.
