Calgary, AB [February 25, 2020] – Growers in Eastern Canada have another convenient option for early season control of broadleaf weeds in soybeans, wheat and corn. Valtera EZ is a pre-emergent herbicide from Nufarm Agriculture Inc. that is now available in a liquid formulation.
“Valtera has been available in a dry formulation for several years in Canada delivering residual control for up to eight weeks after spring moisture activation,” says James Ferrier, Technical Services Manager for Nufarm. “And now we are excited to offer a new liquid formulation that will be more convenient to mix and measure during the busy spring season. Eliminating early weed competition is what Valtera does well, and now there’s a more convenient way to use it.”
Valtera EZ (Group 14) provides effective early season control of tough broadleaf weeds including pigweed, Canada fleabane, common ragweed, lamb’s-quarters, dandelion, nightshades, waterhemp and many more. The product can be applied a minimum of seven days before planting wheat and field corn (no-till only), and up to three days after planting soybeans.
“By managing troublesome weeds before they emerge, Valtera EZ is an excellent option in an integrated approach to building a strong soybean program,” says Ferrier. “Valtera EZ can be tank-mixed with glyphosate along with most burndown and pre-emergent herbicides including Nufarm’s BlackHawk® and Credit® Xtreme.
