Glyphosate in soybeans

BASF has registered Optill, a tank mix of glyphosate, kixor and imazethapyr for soybeans.

It adds four to six weeks of residual suppression or control of lamb’s quarters, lady’s thumb, dandelion, sow thistle, pigweed, shepherd’s purse, stinkweed, buckwheat, wild mustard, fleabane, chickweed, ragweed, barnyard grass, yellow and green foxtail and crabgrass.

Optill allows soybeans to become established and canopy ahead of additional weed pressure, including glyphosate tolerant weeds.

However the combination of Group 14 and Group 2 products might not be completely effective when it comes to Group 2 resistant biotypes.

Vibrant pulses

Syngenta has paired its Vibrance product with its Apron Maxx RTA seed treatment and called it Vibrance Maxx, which can be applied to lentils, chickpeas and peas.

The new product is aimed at reduced and no-till producers, those with tight rotations or growers that have concerns about seedling establishment.

The three fungicidal products, fludioxonil, metalaxyl-M and sedaxane, control seed decay, seedling blight, post-emergent damping off and damping off caused by rhizoctonia soliani.

The product can be producer applied.

Those with pea leaf weevil or wireworm pressure can add Cruiser to the system if applied in a closed treater.

    Amen to that, Mary. And to add to the list, nobody wants gmo alfalfa, Bt seeds and please stop spraying Roundup on the wheat crop before harvesting it! Not only are you harming people you are killing our beneficial insects, like bees and monarchs.
