Application Tips


Rate
  • Registered application rate: 0.335 L/ac. of Infinity® + 0.16 L/ac. of FX

 

Crops/Application timing
  • Crops may be treated from the 2 leaf stage of growth until the flag leaf is just visible but still rolled

 

Water Volumes

Ground:

  • Minimum of 19 L/ac. (5 gal./ac.)

 

Rainfastness
  • Rainfast one hour after application

 

Re-cropping Intervals
  • Barley, canola, flax, oats, peas (field)1, and wheat (spring and durum) can be planted 10 months following an application of Infinity FX
  • Lentils can be planted 22 months following an application of Infinity FX

1 Field peas may be grown the year following Infinity FX herbicide application in all black, grey-wooded and dark brown soil zones. Do not plant field peas the year following an Infinity FX application in brown soil zones where organic matter content is below 2.5% and soil pH is above 7.5.

 

Residue and Grazing
  • Do not graze treated crops or cut for forage or hay within 25 days of application
  • Do not harvest wheat (durum or spring) or barley for grain or straw within 60 days of application

Resistance Management


Exceptional Resistance Management



With Infinity® FX you get the activity of three different herbicide Groups (27, 6 and 4), on the same weed species, which has proven to be an excellent resistant management strategy. Powered by pyrasulfotole, a unique Group 27 chemistry, super-charged with bromoxynil and boosted with fluroxypyr, Infinity FX has speed of activity that will exceed your expectations.


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.

Did you know that there are over 130 Group 2-resistant biotypes in Western Canada?

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 mode of action 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 modes of action 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

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

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

  5. TARGET PROBLEM WEEDS
  6. Systematically target problem weeds and respond quickly to changing weed populations.

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

  9. REMOVE ALL WEEDS
  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.

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

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

  15. MAXIMIZE YOUR HERBICIDE’S EFFECTIVENESS:
    • 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 rain-fastness intervals.
    • Time of day (herbicides are most effective when sprayed between 8:00am and 9:00pm).
