    Glyphosate-resistant kochia spreading

    One of the most widely used herbicides in the world, glyphosate is a key herbicide for weed control in Western Canada. It is used for growing glyphosate-resistant canola, corn, soybean and sugar beet, for weed control in chemical fallow, and for preseeding, pre- and post-harvest weed control in no-till cropping systems. Frequent glyphosate use has selected for glyphosate-resistant (GR) weeds, which currently total 32 weed species in several countries, including Canada.

    Effective nitrogen? That’s a given. Responsive nitrogen? That’s amazing.

    Effective nitrogen? That’s a given. Responsive nitrogen? That’s amazing.

    Crops really go for ESN® SMART NITROGEN®, and so does your bottom line. That’s because its unique technology responds to the same factors that spur plant growth. How does it do it? ESN is a urea granule encapsulated in a polymer coating that protects the nitrogen from loss through leaching, volatilization and denitrification. ESN technology controls its release to match plant demand based on soil temperature.

    Your crops get the nitrogen they need, when they need it. That’s what we mean by responsive. Minimize N loss. Maximize Yield.
