Albaugh's Aggressor herbicide receives U.S. EPA registration for exclusive use in the CoAXium Wheat Production System
Mar. 9, 2018
“CoAXium™ Wheat Production System was built from the ground up by growers who had innovation, performance and grower value in mind,” stated Chad Shelton, Global Proprietary Products Director at Albaugh LLC. “Aggressor™ herbicide will provide growers with a new grassy weed control tool to help to maximize their return on investment by controlling tough winter annual grasses, including feral rye, Group 2 (ALS) resistant biotypes of downy brome grass, volunteer cereals and jointed goatgrass. Aggressor™ herbicide will deliver to the grower consistent performance for control of grassy weeds resulting in cleaner fields and higher yields.”
“Colorado wheat growers were some of the first to adopt herbicide-tolerant wheat technology back in 2001. So by 2008, they had several years of experience and knew that another tool with better performance and better value would provide a huge benefit to wheat growers. This registration is a culmination of that original vision, and we’re very excited we could bring a product to market in just 10 years,” said Brad Erker, Executive Director – Colorado Wheat.
“We are delighted to introduce LCS Fusion AX in 2018 — one of the first two varieties for use with the CoAXium Wheat Production System. Although the concept and the first varieties were developed in Colorado, the technology will benefit growers in other regions where annual grass weeds are troublesome. The LCS distribution network is already gearing up to make seed available in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana, as well as throughout the Central Plains region,” stated Frank Curtis, Chief Operating Officer at Limagrain Cereal Seeds.
