Canada OKs BASF's Optill for soybeans

BASF has received Canadian registration for a new combination herbicide based on saflufenacil (trade-marked as Kixor) for use on soybeans. Optill (saflufenacil 17.8% + imazethapyr 50.2%) is recommended for use in a tank-mix with glyphosate on glyphosate-tolerant soybeans. A pre-plant application of Optill at 147 g/litre provides burn-down and early-season residual control of grasses and broadleaf weeds, BASF points out. The company introduced two saflufenacil-based herbicides, Eragon and Integrity, for use on maize and soybeans in Canada in 2010 ( Agrow No 589, p 25).
