New herbicide for Western Canada field peas, dry beans
Jan. 7, 2013, Mississauga, ON - BASF Canada Inc. has received registration for VIPER ADV herbicide on field peas and dry beans for the 2013 season.
VIPER ADV is a liquid formulation that uses two modes of action to provide a resistance management solution for a broad spectrum of grassy and broadleaf weeds. BASF says the product initiates weed control activity on contact and also provides systemic action after it is absorbed through the roots and leaves to move through the plant for maximum control.
The multiple modes of action in VIPER ADV provide strong activity against Group 1-resistant wild oats, Group 2-resistant wild mustard and Group 2-resistant broadleaf weeds, including kochia and cleavers.
