Bayer adds Huskie FX to the Huskie herbicide family
Bayer is launching its new Huskie FX herbicide premix for cereals to provide broad-spectrum control of broadleaf weeds, with improved efficacy against tough-to-control kochia, and built-in resistance management, say Bayer officials.
This new formulation added to the Huskie family of herbicides combines three modes of action to make one simple solution for weed resistance management for cereal growers. Huskie FX includes three active ingredients, with the addition of fluroxypyr (Group 4) on top of pyrasulfotole (Group 27) and bromoxynil (Group 6).
“Huskie FX provides cereal growers with strong weed resistance management and pride knowing they have done their part to proactively manage resistance,” said Lindsey Aagesen, U.S. marketing segment manager – SeedGrowth and cereals, in a news release. “This new crop protection product is a foundation for controlling tough weeds today to combat weed resistance tomorrow, all part of our broad portfolio of crop protection products.”
Huskie FX is formulated to deliver enhanced control of kochia and provide cereal growers with the superior control over a variety of broadleaf weeds, say Bayer officials.
“As weed resistance continues to become a growing issue, Huskie FX has proven itself to be an excellent tank-mix partner with grass herbicides to fit the needs of a grower’s operation,” added Aagesen.
The built-in resistance management of Huskie FX helps protect the viability of Group 4 herbicides (fluroxypyr) while continuing to bring the efficacy growers rely on with Huskie, say Bayer officials.
Huskie FX is included in the Bayer PLUS Rewards program – a broad portfolio of products designed to provide growers with flexibility and rewards on eligible purchases all season long, say Bayer officials.
