New herbicide tank-mix available for soybeans
By Top Crop Manager
Jan. 6, 2014, Guelph, Ont. – Powered by pyroxasulfone, with a group 15 mode of action, Focus herbicide tank-mix is now approved to provide Canadian soybean growers with residual weed control and enhanced burnoff performance with carfentrazone, a group 14 herbicide.
Pyroxasulfone's characteristics mean growers will need as little as 10 per cent of the amount of product, according to a press release from FMC Canada. The release also noted Focus is a very strong herbicide for amaranth species, providing season-long control of these important yield robbing weeds which include redroot pigweed and green pigweed in Canada.
