BASF extends Heat use in Canada

BASF Canada is extending the use of its herbicide, Heat WG (saflufenacil - trade-marked as Kixor - 70%), as a harvest aid and desiccant for use on field peas, dry beans, sunflowers and soybeans. The company says that it is in the final stages of establishing maximum residue limits for the herbicide on these crops around the world to allow pre-harvest applications this year. Heat was registered for use as a pre-plant burn-down treatment on these crops in 2010. The herbicide was introduced in Canada as Eragon for soybeans and Integrity for maize in 2010 (Agrow No 589, p 25).
