Luxxur Herbicide, crush perennial broadleaf weeds.



emergency logo


It has come to our attention during recent routine testing of samples of Luxxur herbicide inventory, that the active ingredient in Luxxur B (thiencarbazone-methyl) no longer meets the required specifications. This is due to the length of time since the formulation of all Luxxur inventory.

Weed Control

Control Suppression

1 For control of Canada thistle, perennial sow thistle and lamb’s quarter, the addition of an additive is required as follows:

  • Spring and winter wheat: add a non-ionic surfactant (Agral 90, AgSurf or Surf 92) at 0.25% or add ammonium sulphate at 500 g/ha (99%) or 1 L/ha (49% solution) or 1.25 L/ha (40% solution). If using an ammonium sulphate product with a different concentration, adjust the rate accordingly.
  • Durum wheat: add a non-ionic surfactant (Agral 90, AgSurf or Surf 92) at 0.25%.

2 Season long control, with some regrowth in the fall.

Application Tips

  • Thiencarbazone-methyl 0.2 L/ac. + Tribenuron-methyl 6 g/ac.


Crops/Application Timing
  • Wheat (spring and durum) may be treated from 2 to 6 leaf stage on main stem, plus 3 tillers, but prior to jointing (presence of first node)
  • Winter wheat may be treated when the majority of plants have two leaves to full tillering, but prior to jointing (presence of first node)


Water Volumes


  • Minimum of 19 L/ac. (5 gal./ac.)


  • Rainfast 4-6 hours after application


Re-cropping Intervals
  • Canola, cereals, corn, faba beans, lentils, peas, soybeans can be planted 10 months following an application of Luxxur


Residue and Grazing
  • One hour after application

Resistance Management

Exceptional Resistance Management

Luxxur provides strong performance on grassy weeds such as wild oats, barnyard grass, Persian darnel, green foxtail, yellow foxtail, canary seed and Japanese brome. The Group 2 technology in Luxxur allows for control of problematic Group 1-resistant wild oats and foxtail.

What is Resistance?

Resistance is a naturally occuring, inherited ability of some weed biotypes to survive a herbicide treatment that should, under normal use conditions, effectively control a weed population. Some herbicide-resistant weeds have naturally developed one or more mechanisms that allow them to survive a herbicide treatment.

What is Resistance

For a weed to be considered resistant it must:

  • Normally be controlled by the herbicide
  • Survive a usually lethal dose of the herbicide
  • Be heritable, meaning it is passed from generation to generation

Herbicide-resistant individuals are naturally present within a weed population at very low frequencies.

What's the Impact to Farming in Western Canada?

Why is it important to you?

The management issues and yield concerns with herbicide resistance are very real, especially now with an increasing number of herbicide-resistant weeds spreading across Western Canada.

Loss of viable herbicide options

  • Have to rely on currently available herbicides for the foreseeable future
  • No herbicides with new modes of action are in advanced trials

Would require changes in weed and crop management practices

  • Zero or reduced tillage rely heavily on herbicides for weed control

Reduced return on investment

  • Increase the cost of weed management
  • Loss of yield potential

The number of weeds with herbicide resistance continues to rise

  • Including weeds resistant to multiple modes of action

Development of Herbicide Resistance

How does resistance develop?

The image below demonstrates the interaction between a weed species and a particular mode of action and the development of herbicide resistance at different speeds. It’s clear to see that over time the use of a herbicide quickly changes from being very effective to becoming extremely ineffectual. In fact, by the fifth year of application the herbicide is failing to eliminate herbicide-resistant weeds. It is particularly alarming that there is a dramatic increase in failure rate from the fourth to fifth season.

% Resistant Weeds in Population Weed Control
0 Application .0001% Excellent
1st Application .00143% Excellent
2nd Application .0205% Excellent
3rd Application .294% Excellent
4th Application 4.22% Excellent
5th Application 60.5% Failure

What can you do to delay the onset of herbicide resistance?

  • Don’t rely solely on herbicides for weed control
  • Develop field-specific long-term weed management plans
  • Rotate herbicide groups year over year

General guidelines for herbicide rotations:

  • Avoid repeated use of the same herbicide or herbicides having the same Group in the same field year to year
  • Limit the number of applications of a single herbicide or herbicides having the same site of action in a single growing season
  • Use mixtures or sequential treatments of herbicides having different Groups, which are active on the same target weeds whenever possible
  • Use non-selective herbicides pre-seed or pre-emergence to control early flushing weeds (prior to crop emergence) and/or weed escapes

Resistant Weed Management Strategies

  2. Rotate crops as often as possible to utilize the unique modes of action available within the crop.

  4. Time and place fertilizer to benefit your crop, not weeds.

  6. Systematically target problem weeds and respond quickly to changing weed populations.

  8. Scout often and take note of individual weed response to all applications (pre-emergent, post-emergent and pre-harvest).

  10. Make sure you remove all weeds before they set seed – even if you have to pull by hand. Remember the old English proverb: One year seeding, seven years weeding.

  12. Leaving a 1m wide weed-free zone around your cropping fields (so new weeds can’t propagate and expand throughout your fields).

  14. Decrease your row spacing and increase seeding rates to optimize plant populations, maximize crop competitiveness and minimize time to crop canopy closure.

    • Match selection of herbicide(s) with your most difficult weeds
    • Use full-labelled rates
    • Include the best tank mixes and adjuvant(s)
    • Use correct spray volume (follow label directions)
    • Use correct nozzle spacing and droplet size
    • Don’t spray at excess travel speeds, follow label directions
    • Apply during the best weather conditions (warm, humid, and sunny conditions with minimal wind)
    • Maximize rainfastness intervals
    • Time of day (herbicides are most effective when sprayed between 8:00am and 9:00pm)
