Brazil introduces alternative herbicide for ALS resistant weeds on rice

BASF presented the Provisia System to Brazilian rice growers for the 2022-2023 harvest, at the 32nd Official Opening of the Rice Harvest, at an event this week in the city of Capão do Leão, state of Rio Grande do Sul.

According to the agrochemical multinational, the Provisia System offers a strategy to diversify cultures, production systems, and good management practices with connected solutions for high productivity and crop longevity.

The Lidero commercial brand rice seeds, which will have a tolerance to the new herbicide Provisia 50 EC will be made available. The product will offer an alternative mechanism of action for the control of weeds in post-emergence of the crop, such as Oryza sativa, and Echinochloa crus-pavonis, including biotypes resistant to ALS (acetolactate synthase) inhibitor herbicides.

According to BASF, Lidero hybrid cultivars will have advanced genetics, high yields, and grain quality.

We believe that the strengthening and longevity of the farmer's production system depend on the strategy of crop diversification and integration of management practices,” emphasized Luciano Pizzuti, Marketing Manager for Rice and Wheat for Agricultural Solutions at BASF.

“The availability of new cultivars, this time with Provisia technology, reinforces BASF's commitment to delivering increasingly complete and connected solutions for rice growers in the country. We have invested and are working hard on trials so that Lidero rice hybrids with Provisia Technology can also show productivity levels similar to or higher than those obtained in the last harvest,” said José Mauro Costa Rodrigues Guma, Rice and Wheat Seeds Manager for Agricultural Solutions at BASF.

Hugo Borsari, Director of Seeds for Agricultural Solutions at BASF in Latin America, said, “This is yet another connected solution developed by BASF that was born with a commitment to helping farmers, agriculture, and future generations find the ideal balance for success in the field. Farmers have always done the greatest work on the land, and we have been by their side for over 100 years supporting them with increasingly sustainable innovations.”
