Authority® Brand Herbicides

Mike Clemens and his son, Brad, farm 90 miles northeast of Fargo, North Dakota, where Mike’s grandfather started farming in 1941. “We grow corn and soybeans because that’s where the money is,” Mike says. “But in North Dakota, there’s a lot of alkalinity to our soil. Of course, I also have to worry about resistance. That’s my biggest threat.”

“The advantage of getting out early with Authority® brand herbicides is having clean fields from the start.” Mike continues, “You wear a lot of hats as a farmer. Clean fields give you the time to take care of all the other things you have to do.”

Authority® Elite Herbicide

Brad Clemens of Wimbledon, North Dakota, isn’t alone in seeing the real difference Authority® Elite herbicide can make. “Neighbors who use other crop protection programs want to know what we’re doing to keep our fields so clean.”

“Kochia is our biggest challenge right now,” Brad adds. “We’re starting to see waterhemp and Palmer amaranth in our fields, too. Authority Elite herbicide has given us a distinct preemergence advantage against all of them.”

Authority® MTZ DF Herbicide

Kaley Wilkerson and her family farm 3,000 acres outside Montgomery City, Missouri. “If I could tell growers just one thing, I would tell them that if keeping your fields clean is important to you, you should try Authority® MTZ DF herbicide,” Kaley says. “When we apply it in the spring, the residual means we don’t have to worry about getting back out to respray later.”

“FMC being independent of any particular seed brand is important to us because we like using a wide portfolio of seeds,” Kaley states. “We can choose the best varieties for every acre without worrying about how we’re going to protect our seed investment.”

Rule Your Fields with Authority® Brand Herbicides

With six options to fit your soil types, tillage practices, and weed management needs, Authority brand herbicides have the pre-emergence power to fight glyphosate-resistant weeds before they even take root.
