BASF debuts Clearfield lentils in US
BASF has launched imidazolinone herbicide-tolerant Clearfield lentils in the US. Two non-genetically modified Clearfield lentil varieties have been introduced by Pulse USA (Bismark, North Dakota). The lentils can be treated with BASF’s herbicide, Beyond (imazamox), for broad-spectrum weed control, the company points out. Clearfield lentils were introduced in Canada in 2006 ( Agrow No 488, p 18).
