Benefits of Distinct

For post-emergent control in corn:

  • Distinct offers powerful, one-pass weed control of the toughest broadleaf weeds and a wide spectrum of grass weeds when combined with other registered tank-mix products.
  • Distinct + Ultim® or Distinct + Accent® or Distinct + Option® deliver post-emergent control at the 2-to-6 leaf stage of corn.
  • Early post-emergent application provides residual control and excellent crop safety.

For post-harvest control:

  • Distinct uses a unique group-4 active ingredient to deliver powerful weed control of the toughest broadleaf weeds in one pass.
  • The active ingredient disrupts cell growth in both stems and leaves, effectively killing the weed. Treated weeds will display symptoms within several hours and be controlled within 3 - 7 days after application.
  • Distinct is rainfast 4 hours after application.

Application Tips

For post-emergent control in corn:

  • For a complete weed control program, tank-mix Distinct herbicide with Accent 75 DF, Ultim 75% DF or Option.
  • Only one application of Distinct is permitted per year.
  • Apply Distinct herbicide when air temperature is between 10°C and 25°C.

For post-harvest control:

  • Apply Distinct herbicide in 20 - 40 L/ac of water at a pressure of 240 kPa using ground equipment only.
  • For applications to dense weed infestations and thick canopies, use the higher water volume at pressures of 275 kPa.
  • Only one application of Distinct is permitted per year.
  • Apply Distinct herbicide when air temperature is between 10°C and 25°C.

When to Apply

For post-emergent control in corn:

  • Distinct can be applied to emerged and actively growing weeds in all tillage systems on corn from the 2- to 6-leaf stage of corn.

For post-harvest control:

  • For post-harvest treatments, Distinct should be applied when weeds are actively growing.

How Much to Apply

For post-emergent control in corn:

  • Apply the Distinct herbicide at 115 g/acre.
  • One jug of Distinct herbicide will treat 20 acres.
  • One case of Distinct herbicide will treat 40 acres.

Spray Additives for Post-emergence

For best adherence, Distinct requires additives for post-emergent treatments. The addition of non-ionic surfactant at 0.25% v/v plus liquid nitrogen fertilizer 28-0-0 at 1.25% v/v is recommended under most conditions. You may substitute spray grade ammonium sulfate for liquid nitrogen fertilizer.

Mixing Instructions 

  1. Fill sprayer half-full with clean water and agitate.
  2. If you are tank-mixing with either Accent 75 DF or Ultim 37.4 DF, place the water-soluble PVA bags into the tank. If tank mixing with Option 35 DF, add the correct amount and continue agitation until thoroughly dispersed. Wait until fully dissolved and the product is evenly mixed.
  3. Measure and pour Distinct into the tank.
  4. Add appropriate adjuvant at the required rate for tank mixture partner in use.
  5. Add 28% UAN at appropriate rate for tank mixture partner in use.
  6. Add remaining amount of water and continue agitation while spraying completely.

 

For post-harvest control:

  • For post-harvest applications, Distinct herbicide should always be tank-mixed with glyphosate to provide broad-spectrum weed control.
