New herbicide option offers control of resistant weeds in for canola and lentil crops

A new product is on the market by Gowan Canada offering weed control in canola, lentils and other broadleaf crops.

Edge MicroActiv herbicide contains the active ingredient ethalfluralin — a Group 3 mode of action herbicide that controls weeds, including kochia and wild oat.

“Edge MicroActiv provides canola, pea, and lentil growers an opportunity to stay ahead of resistant weeds by using an alternative mode of action in their herbicide programs,” says Jacque Palmer, Gowan Company COO.

“In addition, (it’s) an easier-to-use formulation and treats more acres pound for pound than Edge Granular, reducing storage space and treating more acres per bag. We are excited to introduce this critical tool to Canadian growers.”
