A complete solution for a clean start

What you know: you plan to add another mode of action or two to your spring glyphosate application, because you know that’s a big step toward protecting your future glyphosate use.

What you’re wondering: should you be adding a familiar and heavily used mode of action, or one that’s a bit off the beaten path?

Take spring wheat, for example. There’s a good chance you’ll be using a Group 2 and/or Group 4 for your in-crop application. Layering in novel modes of action pre-seed/pre-emergent is an excellent resistance management strategy.

Lentils have a shortage of in-crop herbicide options. This puts more pressure on your pre-seed application because you want to start the season as close to weed-free as possible. If your lentils emerge into a weedy field, you face an uphill climb to finish with a high-yielding crop.

In both cases, spring wheat and lentils, Focus® herbicide provides a complete weed control solution and a great option for delaying herbicide resistance. In one easy-to-use product, you have broad-spectrum broadleaf and grassy weed control for enhanced pre-seed burnoff  plus extended control.

Focus® herbicide can be applied pre-seed, pre-emergence or in the fall, with or without glyphosate. Because it contains Group 14 and 15 modes of action, it’s a smart change of pace from more familiar add-in modes of action, especially those that could be needed in-crop later on in the season.

In spring wheat, Focus® herbicide introduces different modes of action. You can save Groups 2 and 4 for your in-crop application, giving you an effective herbicide layering strategy. In lentils, Focus® herbicide is a dependable way to start your growing season strongly, with fewer weed headaches the rest of the way.

For activation, Focus® herbicide requires at least ½ inch of moisture. Applying Focus® herbicide in the fall can achieve the necessary activation via snowmelt. This will also provide early-season control or suppression of labelled weeds the following spring.

Growers of spring wheat and lentils are especially well-served by Focus® herbicide. It provides a complete weed control solution while delivering Group 14 and 15 activity to reduce the risk of herbicide resistance.
