Q: Can I spray Buctil M (on flax) in extreme heat? It has been in the mid 30's this week and is supposed to continue for a week or so?
A:No, we do not recommend spraying when temperatures exceed 30°C. If the evening temperatures start dipping down, you could spray then; remember to keep water volume at 10 (good) to 15 (better) US gallons per acre. There is a high risk of evaporation during with high temperatures and increasing the water volume will help mitigate and also improve control as Buctril M does rely on some contact activity. Humidity is not an issue. Spraying at the right staging is the most critical.
Q: Can I tank mix Infinity FX + Assert?
A: No, this is not a registered tank mix.
Q: What is the rain-fast of Infinity FX?
A: Rain-fast of Infinity FX is 1 hour.
Q: What is the tank mix order for Axial, AMS and Infinity FX?
A: 1. AMS
Q: What is the mixing order for Varro & Infinity FX? Is AMS a requirement in the tank mix (Manitoba grower)
A: Tank Mix Order:
3. FX Herbicide
Note that AMS is not a requirement.
Q: Can you spray Infinity on Oats?
A: No – heavy rain can cause the product to wash into the root zone after an application, which could be taken up by the roots of the crop and can cause whitening symptoms.
Q: Which surfactant do I use in Luxxur for enhanced grass control?
A: Unless otherwise noted for all Luxxur tank mixes, add AMS (spring wheat) or NIS (durum wheat) for enhanced grass control
Q: What is the rain-fast of Luxxur?
A: Rain-fast of Luxxur is 4-6 hours.
Q: Can I tank mix Luxxur and Enforcer M?
A: No, this is not a registered tank mix.
Q: What is the tank mix order for Luxxur & Paradigm?
A: 1. Paradigm
2. Luxxur A
3. AMS (0.5 L/acre in spring wheat
4. Luxxur B
5. NIS (0.25% v/v in durum wheat).
Q: Can you tank mix Luxxur with 2,4-D?
A: Yes, Luxxur is tank mixable with 2,4-D Ester.
Q: What is the minimum temperature for spraying Puma Advance + Infinity on barley?
A: Ideal conditions are between 5 and 28°C. If there is a frost, wait at least 48 hours before spraying to ensure plants have recovered from the stress of frost. If nighttime lows reach +3°C or lower, then spraying herbicides are not recommended due to plant metabolism slowing down below this temperature. Ideally, wait until the nighttime low is no lower than +5°C for a minimum of 3 days so the plants are actively growing. This will ensure that the herbicide can be effective as possible and the grower gets the best return on investment.
Q: What is the staging for Sencor on chickpeas?
A: 1-3 above ground node stage (max height of 6 cm) at 111 g/ac.
Q: What are the rates for a split application of Sencor on Lentils?
A: 77 g followed by 57 g. Allow 7 to 10 days between applications.
Q: Grower spraying split application of Sencor on his lentils but has Japanese Brome and wants to use Assure. Can he spray before and if so, how long does he wait until first Sencor application or can he spray in between Sencor applications?
A: If before, the grower can wait 2-3 days and then apply first application of Sencor and then follow the recommended 7-10 days before the next application. If in between, apply first application of Sencor, then wait 4-5 days, apply Assure, wait another 4-5 days then apply second application of Sencor.
Q: Sencor on a lentil field, growers main concern is the volunteer canola. He is aware that Sencor will get volunteer canola but wanted to double check that Clearfield fell under the volunteer canola. If it does what is the timing and rate?
A: Yes, Clearfield is the same as other volunteer canola, timing: lentil vines less than 15cm long, 3-5 node stage (4") and rate of 111g/ac.
Q: How much AMS do I need to add with Tundra?
A: 0.5 L/acre.
Q: What is the staging of Tundra?
A: 1-6 LS, up to the 3rd tiller.
Q: When is it too late to be spraying Tundra on Barley?
A: The correct staging for spraying Tundra on Barley is between the 1 -6 leaf stage and a maximum of 3 tillers.
Q: What is the tank mix order for Varro and Curtail M on spring wheat?
A: 1. AMS
3. Curtail M
Q: What can be used with Velocity M3 to control stork's bill?
A: To maximize activity of Velocity M3 on stork's bill add AMS and 2,4-D Ester at 4 oz.
Q: Can my CWRS, which was sprayed with Velocity, be underseeded to clover?
A: No, expect the clover to be injured. We would not expect a very high survivability.
Q: Can I leave Velocity in my tank overnight (rain delay)?
A: Yes, you can. Agitate every 6-8 hours. Store out of direct sunlight. Agitate well before spraying.
Q: When do you add MCPA to Velocity & AMS tank mix?
A: 4 oz/ac of MCPA can be added for increased suppression of Canada thistle, dandelion or perennial sow thistle. The addition of MCPA Ester may result in reduced grass control under drought conditions, heavy grass populations or advanced grass stages. In spring & winter wheat include AMS adjuvant when adding MCPA Ester.
Q: Should I be adding AMS to my Velocity?
A: This decision is based on many factors: temperature, target weeds, staging and density of weeds as well as the potential tank-mix of MCAP or 2-4D. AMS helps under cooler conditions and tough weed pressure, especially wild oats, cleavers and dandelions. If adding 4 ounces of MCAP or 2-4D, then it is required. Under warm humid conditions the AMS will heat up the mix and may cause some crop response. Please speak to your local TSM.
Q: What is the maximum temperature for spraying Velocity?
A: Do not apply to crop that is under stress due to abnormal environmental conditions such as frost, extreme heat, low fertility, drought, flooding, or disease and/or insect damage as crop injury may result. If temperature is over 30°C, advise the grower to contact their TSM to discuss options. Adding more water and avoiding the addition of any extras to the tank will help mitigate spraying in warm weather.
