Eragon LQ herbicide now registered in Eastern Canada

Nov. 4, 2014 - BASF announced today that it has received registration from the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) for Eragon LQ herbicide for the 2015 season.

Eragon LQ delivers the fast, complete weed control of Eragon in a new convenient liquid formulation for faster fill-up times and improved tank clean-out. Eragon LQ is a unique Group 14 chemistry that uses the active ingredient Kixor to help growers improve their glyphosate burndown in the spring and improve their harvest in the fall. It provides improved control of tough weeds like lamb's-quarters and Canada fleabane, including Group 2-, triazine- and glyphosate-resistant weed biotypes.

Eragon LQ has also received registration for pre-harvest weed management applications in cereals. Aside from pre-plant applications, this new use pattern gives growers another application window to manage tough to control weeds, combine cereals more efficiently and control perennials for cleaner fields in the spring.
