“There’s a lot to be said about the simplicity and superior control of Velocity m3.”
– Velocity m3 Grower Testimonial, Doug Winkler
Flexible Cropping Rotations
"We applied Velocity m3 to part of a field that had a very dense population of wild oats. Most of the wild oats were also well advanced, so we didn’t expect to see control that came very close to 100%. Based on our results, I’d certainly recommend Velocity m3 to anyone who wants an effective chemical that’s also easy on the crop and provides a lot of re-cropping flexibility. Velocity m3’s control of grass and broadleaf weeds is excellent, and the combined modes of action in Velocity m3 gives us an effective resistance management tool."
- Craig Ostafie, Canora, SK.
"We applied Velocity m3 on a field where we had some concerns about Group 1-resistant wild oats and we did not see any escapes. Control of barnyard grass, wild buckwheat, and smartweed was also very good. On fields we have identified as possibly having Group 1-resistant wild oats, we’ve been using different modes of action to control them. Velocity m3 has no re-cropping concerns, so we’re looking forward to using it again."
- Doug Bartmanovich, Glenlea, MB.
"One of the biggest weed problems in our area is Japanese brome, and we got excellent control with Velocity m3. It really smoked kochia and wild oats, as well. We try to rotate the modes of action of the products we apply, and Velocity m3's three modes of action will definitely help us manage resistance."
- Dwayne Gebhart, Mankota, SK.
Exceptional Crop Safety
"We did a 40 acre strip trial with Velocity m3 and compared it head-to-head with an Everest® and Frontline 2,4-D tank mix. The first thing I noticed was the crop safety with the Velocity m3. It was quite noticeable when you drove past the field that the Velocity m3 was a lot easier on the crop. It gives us the broad-spectrum weed control that we’re looking for and it also helps us with resistance issues. The nice thing about the Velocity m3 is it doesn’t tie your hands as far as crop rotation. I was very satisfied with the product."
- Greg Smith, Smith’s Honey and Seed Farm, Dugald, MB.
"We thought Velocity m3 worked very well and also fairly quickly on both wild oats and broadleaf weeds. We saw signs of activity within four to five days after we had applied Velocity m3, which is much sooner than we see with some chemicals. And it’s nice to have a new tool like Velocity m3. Because it has multiple modes of action to control weeds and manage resistance, we think Velocity m3 is going to be a serious contender in the marketplace."
- James Jackson, Dapp, AB.
"We thought Velocity m3 did a very effective job of controlling wild oats, Canada thistle, wild mustard and stinkweed in our plot. We try to rotate both modes of action and crops as best as we can to avoid resistance, and being able to include Velocity m3 in our spray program will certainly help. Although conditions didn’t affect us at seeding, Velocity m3’s wide window of application is another reason we’d consider including it."
- Jeff McManes, Alexander, MB.
"Any time you see activity as quickly as we did after applying Velocity m3, that’s a good sign that you are eliminating weed competition and maximizing yield potential. Wild oats, wild buckwheat, Canada thistle, hemp-nettle and stinkweed started to turn yellow within a few days after we applied Velocity m3, so we thought Velocity m3 worked very well. We rotate herbicides to prevent resistance, and Velocity m3’s three modes of action make it a good fit for our operation."
- John Wollman, Farm Boss, Twilight Colony, Neepawa, MB.
"We put the Velocity m3 trial right in the middle of the field, with our competitor on both sides and it absolutely worked awesome. There’s a direct line through the field where the wild oats were held back all year. It just looked fantastic. It was night and day. With Velocity m3 you get one jug, you’re not mixing it, you’re not confused on how many jugs of this and how many jugs of that, you put it in, you go. It worked fast and it worked good. I think it’s a terrific chemical and I’m looking forward to using it next year."
- Brad Duncan, Rock Haven, SK.
"The three modes of action in Velocity m3 are quite different from what we normally use, so being able to switch modes of action so significantly yet still get excellent control is like getting a brand new tool for our toolbox. We thought Velocity m3 worked very well on the spectrum of weeds we were after, including wild oats, chickweed, wild buckwheat, cleavers, hemp-nettle and volunteer canola. It was also gentle on the crop, and Velocity m3’s wide window of application is a nice option to have in case spraying is delayed."
- Robert Semeniuk, Smoky Lake, AB.
Broad-Spectrum Grass and Broadleaf Weed Control
"Velocity m3 did exactly what it was supposed to do. It took care of wild oats, hemp-nettle, wild buckwheat and Canada thistle. The stubble was very clean at harvest. We know from experience that we can control weeds like resistant wild oats by rotating modes of action, so Velocity m3’s three modes of action make it a good option for us to manage resistance. We were definitely impressed with Velocity m3 and we’ll use it again."
- Bryan Geddes, Porcupine Plain, SK.
"Every product we applied was affected by cool, wet conditions, but we thought Velocity m3 worked very well despite the circumstances. Control of wild oats, wild buckwheat, lamb’s-quarters and volunteer canola was excellent. Group 1-resistant wild oats are becoming a problem in our area, and we’ll definitely be using Velocity m3 in the future because it gives us a valuable new option to control weeds as well as manage resistance."
- Darryl Enns, Elm Creek, MB.
"Velocity m3 was really hot on kochia and did a 100% job on wild oats. We’re looking forward to using Velocity m3 again, this time on some land where we suspect we have some Group 1-resistant wild oats. The new mode of action in Velocity m3 is so effective that we’re hoping for the same excellent level of control that we got in our FRP plot."
- David Arnst, Jansen, SK.
"We were pleasantly surprised with both the level of control we got with Velocity m3 and how quickly it worked, given the circumstances when we applied it. There was heavy wild oat pressure; the weather was cool; and we had some showers pass through before we even got out of the field. Yet between three and seven days after applying Velocity m3, we could see activity on wild oats, kochia, volunteer canola, redroot pigweed and stinkweed. We think Velocity m3 is certainly worth considering if you’re looking for re-cropping flexibility and want to take advantage of new chemistry."
- Fred Greig, Reston, MB.
"We have Group 1-resistant wild oats and a lot of barnyard grass on our farm, and Velocity m3 is the first product that has given us excellent control of both weeds. Velocity m3 also did a great job on kochia, round-leaved mallow, wild buckwheat and redroot pigweed. If anyone asked me what I thought about Velocity m3, I’d certainly recommend it because Velocity m3 is safe on the crop and it works!"
- Randy Yeo, Cypress River, MB.
"Velocity m3 did an excellent job of controlling wild oats, cleavers, hemp-nettle and wild buckwheat in our FRP. Our wheat stayed green after applying Velocity m3, and the field was clean at harvest. We try to incorporate new modes of action in our weed control program to manage resistance, and Velocity m3 gives us the opportunity to do that while maximizing weed control and crop safety at the same time."
- Steve Tomtene, Birch Hills, SK.
"We found out first-hand how valuable Velocity m3’s wide window of application can be. Cool wet weather delayed our spraying operations until weeds were well advanced so timing was far from ideal. Velocity m3 still worked quite well, and we got excellent control of cleavers, wild mustard and Group 1-resistant wild oats. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Velocity m3 because it’s a good product to use to rotate modes of action and it provides excellent control."
- Vern Doroschuk, Teulon, MB.
"We had excellent control of all the weeds, most notably wild oats, kochia and cleavers. It looks like it could be a real top-notch chemical for us. I would recommend using it and we’ve already asked to get some for our farm for next year."
- Louis Hebert, Hebert Land and Cattle, Moosomin, SK.
"Velocity m3 worked really well. This particular field was west of our main farmstead and it has a history of thistles, some hemp-nettle, some cleavers and a light infestation of wild oats. To see the injury on those weeds was proof enough to me that it did a good job. And then as far as wild oats go, it was what I didn’t see. You knew they were there when you sprayed, but when you don’t see them two or three weeks later, it’s a nice sight to see. I’d recommend Velocity m3 to other growers; it does the job."
- Doug Winkler, Indis, AB.
