New Herbicide Whips Weeds in Wheat

February 29, 2012
By: Rhonda Brooks, Farm Journal Seeds & Production Editor


Wheat growers now have the opportunity to control key grass and broadleaf weeds in one new product: Huskie Complete herbicide. Huskie Complete is approved for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for post-emergence application on spring wheat, winter wheat and durum, according to John McGregor, product manager.
Huskie Complete, which features an active ingredient new to cereals, controls key grass weeds, including those that are ACC-ase resistant, such as wild oats, barnyardgrass and green and yellow foxtail. It also controls more than 50 broadleaf weeds, including ALS-resistant biotypes, such as kochia, common lambsquarters, Russian thistle and prickly lettuce.
In the following video, McGregor provides three points he believes will help farmers derive the best results from the new herbicide. He adds that the product will be available in limited quantities for this year.
