ARMEZON herbicide now available in western Canada

With the expanded availability of BASF Canada's ARMEZON herbicide, corn growers in western Canada have a brand new option for weed control.

"Keeping corn fields weed free early in the season can have a major impact on yield," Deven Esqueda, brand manager for corn and soybean herbicides at BASF Canada, said. "Using HEAT LQ as a pre-seed burndown followed by ARMEZON will help growers keep their corn clean during that critical period."

ARMEZON delivers post-emergent weed control in corn. It does not jeopardize crop safety, makes re-cropping possible, and offers a wide application window. When the herbicide is tank-mixed with glyphosate, it delivers multiple modes of action on annual grasses and broadleaf weeds.

ARMEZON controls even the toughest weeds, including wild mustard, barnyard grass and green foxtail. Recent testing indicates it also controls volunteer canola. BASF has submitted to the Pest Management Regulatory Agency for a label expansion to include resistant kochia control.

"ARMEZON gives us a lot of options," Warren McCutchen, a grower from Carman, Manitoba, said. "Volunteer canola comes in late sometimes and we can put ARMEZON on up until the corn starts filling in the rows and see good control with no damage to the crop."
