Avadex MicroActiv available for pea growers on the Prairies
By Top Crop Manager
Gowan Canada has announced that the Avadex MicroActiv label has been expanded to include peas, in addition to existing crops barley, canary seed, canola, durum, flax and mustard.
“As Group 1 and Group 2 resistant wild oats continue to plague more and more fields in the prairies according to the latest ag Canada studies, it is good for growers to include other modes of action like Group 8 Avadex. This provides another tool for pea growers," says Garth Render, general manager for Gowan Canada.
With a herbicide layering program using group 3 Edge, group 8 Avadex, or Fortress, which has both groups 3 and 8, growers can expect better weed control, higher yields and will be practicing good weed resistance management.
