Syngenta adds two pulse herbicide options for ’24

(Kara Oosterhuis/RealAgriculture)

Pulse growers looking for control of grassy and broadleaf weeds will have new options from Syngenta Canada.

The first is Nelatic pulse herbicide, a pre-mix formula that combines imazamox and bentazon for systemic and contact control of grasses and broadleaf weeds found in Western Canada field peas.

Nelatic offers built-in resistance management support with two modes of action in a Group 2 and Group 6 herbicide, Syngenta says, and the pre-mix formulation is easy to use. It is sold as a case containing two 7.9 L jugs treating 40 ac/case at the recommended rate, as well as 126.24 L drum treating 320 ac at the recommended rate.

Farmers growing Imidazolinone-tolerant (Clearfield) lentils will have the option of using Canvista pulse herbicide for broad-spectrum weed control.

Canvista controls common broadleaf weeds and grasses found in Western Canada IMI-tolerant lentil crops with the active ingredient imazamox (a Group 2). It is sold in a ready-to-apply formula, and provides rotational flexibility for future crops, Syngenta says.

Canvista will be sold in a case containing two 8 L jugs that treat 160 ac/case at the recommended rate.

Both Nelatic and Canvista are included in the 2024 Syngenta Partner Program, that offers savings of up to 15.5 per cent. For more information or quesitons about the savings program, growers are asked to talk to their local Syngenta sales representative.
