    Benefits of Sharpen® Powered by Kixor® Herbicide

    • Drives burndown three to five times faster than 2,4-D or glyphosate
    • Allows an earlier planting window, cleaner fields, and improved operational efficiency in the spring
    • Offers broad-spectrum control of tough broadleaf weeds
    • Allows growers to harvest on their schedule when used as a harvest aid

    Flexible burndown and broader-spectrum control

    Sharpen herbicide provides excellent residual control and fast burndown of broadleaf weeds in a wide range of crops, with the flexibility to fit the needs of your farm.

    Trait system flexibility

    Sharpen herbicide frees you to use other trait-specific chemistry in either your burndown or post-emergent applications.

    Tank mix flexibility

    Sharpen herbicide may be tank-mixed or applied sequentially with other herbicide products for a broader spectrum of burndown or residual weed control.

    Application flexibility

    Sharpen herbicide can be applied pre-plant or pre-emergence. And with a zero-day rotation interval in most soil types, no-till farmers can spray and plant on the same day.

    Prep fields for a smooth harvest

    Sharpen herbicide is a premier harvest aid for a crop desiccation, drydown, and weed control that readies row crops for a cleaner harvest.

    Harvest with less variability

    Used as a harvest aid, this desiccant herbicide provides drydown once crops have reached an optimal maturity level.

    Control your harvest window

    Sharpen herbicide allows you to time your harvest to the right conditions with faster cotton and dry bean desiccation, defoliation, short pre-harvest intervals, and suppressed regrowth.

    Protect your investment

    Sharpen herbicide makes your crop less vulnerable to the elements during harvest and eliminates the causes of reduced grading, rejection, and crop loss.
