Brake® FAQ's
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.
