New weed control tool for soybeans
Apr. 12, 2013, Mississauga, ON - Roundup Ready soybean growers in Western Canada have another herbicide option to combat grass and broadleaf weeds. BASF Canada Inc. (BASF) has received registration for the use of VIPER ADV herbicide on soybeans in Western Canada for the 2013 season.
VIPER ADV is a liquid formulation registered across all soil zones that uses Group 2 and Group 6 modes of action against tough-to-control weeds. Tank-mixed with glyphosate, VIPER ADV is a post-emergent herbicide that offers rotational freedom and excellent follow crop flexibility.
VIPER ADV was first registered in Western Canada in January 2013 for use on field peas and dry beans. With the recent expansion of soybeans to the VIPER ADV label, growers now have a valuable tool for improved weed management in their soybeans.
