Broadleaf Weed Control

A lamb’s quarters weed stands healthy and green in dark soil with three individual short plants, each with several leaves. A lamb’s quarter weed has been treated with herbicide and lays dead on dark soil. Its leaves are brown, yellow and lifeless.

1 In normal conditions will be controlled up to the 4-leaf stage. Plants beyond this stage are unlikely to be controlled. The higher rate generally gives better results.

How to Apply

Ground Treatment:

  • Accurately calibrate the sprayer prior to mixing the herbicide treatments.
  • Apply Huskie PRE in a minimum of 46.8 L/ha of total spray volume. Sprayable fluid fertilizer (nitrogen solution) may replace all or part of the water as a carrier for preplant and pre-emergence applications. Check for compatibility by combining all ingredients in a small container in the same ratio as the anticipated use. If any indications of physical incompatibility develop, do not use this mixture for spraying. Indications of incompatibility usually will appear 5-15 minutes after mixing.
  • Ensure you read the tank-mix partner label for minimum spray volume recommendations.
  • Uniform, thorough coverage is important to obtain consistent weed control. Higher water volumes should be used under dense weed canopies to ensure thorough coverage of the target weeds.
  • Refer to the nozzle manufacturer’s recommendations for proper nozzle, pressure setting and sprayer speed for optimum product performance and minimal spray drift.
  • For best results use flat fan nozzles or comparable nozzles to achieve uniform spray distribution.
  • Do not use flood jet nozzles, controlled droplet application equipment or Sprafoil® equipment.

Water Volumes and Tank Mixing

Ground // minimum of 5 US gal./ac. (47 L/ha.). Uniform, thorough coverage is important to obtain consistent weed control. Higher water volumes should be used under dense weed canopies to ensure thorough coverage of the target weeds.

Huskie PRE must be applied with clean and properly calibrated equipment. Prior to adding Huskie PRE, ensure that the spray tank, filters and nozzles have been thoroughly cleaned and that agitation system is properly working.

  1. Fill spray tank with ¼ to ½ of the required volume of water or liquid fertilizer (nitrogen solution) prior to the addition of Huskie PRE.
  2. Add Huskie PRE slowly to the tank and agitate, then add the rest of the water or liquid fertilizer (nitrogen solution) to the desired level.
  3. Maintain sufficient agitation to ensure a uniform spray mixture during application.
  4. Add tank mix partner.
  5. Continue to fill the tank with water or liquid fertilizer (nitrogen solution) to the desired volume while agitating.

Proper agitation should be maintained while applying to ensure a uniform spray mixture. Do not allow mixtures to stand for prolonged periods of time. If the spray solution is allowed to settle for one hour or more, reagitate the spray solution for a minimum of 10 minutes before application.

How to Handle Resistance?

Stewardship & Resistance Management

Do not use another Group 27 herbicide following an application of Huskie PRE in the same crop

For resistance management, please note that Huskie PRE is both a Group 27 and a Group 6 herbicide. Any weed population may contain or develop plants naturally resistant to Group 27 and/or Group 6 herbicides. The resistant biotypes may dominate the weed population if these herbicides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action, but specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
