“The training module offers growers and retailers the chance to learn more about Obey and how this new product can be used in their current weed management program,” said Stu Throop, FMC Agricultural Products North America product manager. “Obey offers a combination of excellent weed control and flexible application.” 

Obey herbicide is an effective weed management tool for both conventional and Clearfield® rice production. It offers dual modes of action, delivering consistent contact and residual control on tough weed species. In addition, Obey offers flexible application timing, allowing growers to use the product when it best fits their specific weed management programs. This versatility helps to keep rice fields free of yield-robbing weeds until permanent flood. The unique composition of Obey also provides growers with a tool to combat an increasing incidence of herbicide resistant barnyardgrass in rice production.  

The FMC CropPro University Training Module platform offers retailers and growers the convenience of online training, allowing them to save on registration fees and travel costs typically associated with professional development.
