Wheat growers have new herbicide option

BASF announced this week that Clearmax herbicide will be available in limited supplies this season for use on winter wheat acres in the Clearfield Production System.

"Clearmax is good news for the increasing number of growers who count on the Clearfield wheat system for cleaner and more marketable grain at harvest," says Jason Ward, Clearfield market manager with BASF. "Clearmax gives these growers a great weed control option -- one with exceptional grass weed control plus more broadleaf control in a one-pass system."

Clearmax contains the active ingredients imazamox and MCPA. It controls problem grass weeds like downy brome, joined goatgrass, aCCase resistant foxtail, wild oats, and volunteer cereals. It also controls common broadleaf weeds like common lambsquarters, volunteer canola, and mustard.

Ward adds the introduction of Clearmax herbicide into the Clearfield system especially will appeal to growers in the Central Plains who will be planting the higher-yielding, second-generation Clearfield winter wheat varieties available from seed companies this year.

Beyond herbicide also will continue to be available as a weed control option in the Clearfield wheat system.
