BASF's Viper Adv OK'd in Canada for soybeans
BASF has received an expanded Canadian approval for its post-emergence herbicide, Viper Adv (imazamox + bentazone), for use on soybeans. The product was registered for use on peas and beans in January. It is seen as a tank-mix partner for glyphosate for the control of grasses and broadleaf weeds in glyphosate-tolerant soybeans. “The multiple modes of action in Viper Adv provide superior control against a broad spectrum of weeds including all types of volunteer canola and Group 2 [acetolactate synthase inhibitor]-resistant biotypes,” says brand manager Sean Chiki.
