The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency registered BASF’s new Heat® Complete pre-seed/pre-emerge herbicide for use on lentils, field peas, soybeans and corn in Canada for the 2019 crop season with the label expansion of one of the components.
Heat Complete’s two modes of action – Group 14 and Group 15 – provide broad-spectrum burndown of tough weeds, including cleavers, volunteer canola, kochia and wild buckwheat, as well as extended residual activity on key broadleaf and grass weeds such as redroot pigweed and wild oats, allowing for better efficacy of growers’ in-crop applications.
“Our newest innovation Heat Complete is the cornerstone of our Advanced Weed Control Program,” said Dan Packer, Pulse Crop Manager, BASF Agricultural Solutions Canada. “Through this Program, we provide Canadian farmers with a complete weed control and resistance management strategy by using multiple modes of effective action, residual weed control and herbicide layering. Also, growers who follow the Advanced Weed Control recommendation receive a higher level of product support from BASF, for example on resistant weeds.”
“Once an active ingredient is developed and registered, we continue to invest in its future development,” said Mark Shillingford, Marketing Director, BASF Agricultural Solutions Canada. “We constantly evaluate our products to create improved approaches, programs, formulations, label extensions and new tank-mix partners to enhance the product’s in-field results.”
In addition to Heat Complete, the Advanced Weed Control portfolio includes Heat LQ, Solo® Ultra, Odyssey® Ultra NXT, Viper® ADV, Engenia® and Armezon®.
