BASF expands Eragon use in Canada

BASF Canada is extending the use of its herbicide, Eragon (saflufenacil - trade-marked as Kixor - 70%), as a harvest aid and desiccant for use on soybeans and dry beans. 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. The company previously indicated that it was supporting pre-harvest applications of its saflufenacil-based herbicide, Heat, on soybeans, dry beans, field peas and sunflowers (Agrow No 684, p 24). Eragon has become an essential glyphosate tank-mix partner for pre-seed applications in soybeans, maize and wheat, BASF notes. It introduced Eragon for use on soybeans in 2010 (Agrow No 589, p 25).
