Infinity FX to combat tough-to-control cleavers and kochia

Apr. 13, 2016 - Bayer has announced the launch of Infinity FX, a new cereal herbicide that provides growers with outstanding control of cleavers and kochia, as well as managing other tough to control weeds. With the combination of three different herbicide Groups, Infinity FX offers growers exceptional resistance management through increased herbicide activity on the same weed species.

"At Bayer, we are dedicated to developing tools for growers that promote sustainable weed management practices without sacrificing weed control," says Ian Scholer, Portfolio Manager – Cereal Broadleaf Herbicides. "By incorporating a Group 27, 6 and 4 herbicide, Infinity FX is the newest option for growers looking to do their part in preventing the onset of herbicide resistance, while still managing broadleaf weeds."

With both systemic and contact properties, Infinity FX provides growers with fast-acting control on the toughest broadleaf weeds—including cleavers, kochia, wild buckwheat in addition to volunteer flax.

"Growers and retailers asked Bayer for a product that offers increased cleaver and kochia control while combating the looming threat of herbicide resistance," says Scholer. "We developed Infinity FX as a result of those requests, in an effort to empower Canadian growers with the tools they need to assist them in the challenges they face on their operation."

Offered in convenient 40 acre co-packs, Infinity FX has a wide window of application and is tank-mix friendly. Growers are encouraged to talk to their local retailers for more information.
