Velocity m3

Overview

More power to you.



Velocity m3 herbicide is a powerful all-in-one solution for both grass and broadleaf weed control. It combines three active ingredients – thiencarbazone-methyl (Group 2), pyrasulfotole (Group 27), and bromoxynil (Group 6) – which together provide growers with exceptional broad-spectrum grass and broadleaf weed control. Velocity m3 also gives you effective resistance management against Group 1-resistant wild oats and foxtail, and Group 2- and Group 9-resistant broadleaf weeds in spring, durum and winter wheat.

Crops/Application Timing

Bayer recommends early weed removal to achieve optimal product performance and crop yield.
Learn more about early application.

Spring & Durum Wheat

  • 1 to 6 leaf stage, maximum 3 tillers, but prior to presence of the first node (jointing)
  • Do not apply an ALS herbicide such as Velocity m3 following presence of first node as crop injury may occur
  • Nodes are bumps that appear on the main stem above the crown. The appearance of the first node marks the transition from vegetative to reproductive growth. See image below for example of nodes

t2 node final Developing Head Node Final

Winter Wheat

  • Apply either in the fall or spring when the majority of plants have one leaf to full tillering, but prior to presence of the first node (jointing)


Under Drought Conditions

  • Do not spray Velocity m3 herbicide if >35 days between seeding and spraying, as drought hastens crop development
  • Do not spray within three days before or after cold temperatures (3°C or lower)

 

Packaging
  • One 8.1 L jug = 20 ac. (one 2 x 8.1L case = 40 ac.)
  • One 129.6 L Bulk shuttle = 320 ac.*

*Mixing required; attach the supplied drill adaptor and mix at high speed for one minute prior to extracting the product from the shuttle.

 

Water Volume
  • Ground – minimum of 5 US gal./ac. (19 L/ac.)
  • Aerial – minimum of 3 US gal./ac. (11 L/ac.)

 

Rainfastness
  • One hour after application

 

Re-cropping Intervals

Crops safe to plant within 10 months following Velocity m3 application:
alfalfa, barley, canary seed, canola, corn (field)1, flax, oats, peas (field)2, soybeans1, sunflowers and wheat (durum and spring)

Crops safe to plant within 22 months:
lentils

1Manitoba only

2Field peas may be grown the year following Velocity m3 herbicide application in all black, grey-wooded and dark brown soil zones. Do not plant field peas the year following a Velocity m3 application in the brown soil zone where organic matter content is below 2.5% and where soil pH is above 7.5.

 

Residue and Grazing

Do not:

  • Graze the treated crops or cut for forage within 25 days or cut for hay within 30 days of application
  • Harvest spring and durum wheat for grain or straw within 60 days of application or winter wheat within 72 days of application
  • Enter treated fields within 24 hours of application

Resistance Management

The unique Group 27 active in Velocity m3 herbicide gives you the newest chemistry in herbicides. With only three Group 27 herbicides on the market, you can be sure you are getting a powerful herbicide and a superb rotational tool to knock out the toughest resistant weeds in your field.

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.


Types of herbicide resistance infographic.

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 when multiple groups are used in conjunction with one another as opposed to repetitive application of individual modes, they can effectively delay the onset of resistance for an additional five to seven years?

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. Particularly alarming is the dramatic increase in failure rate from the fourth to fifth season.

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 from 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 from different Groups that 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)
