TOUGH WEEDS WON'T HOLD VALTERA EZ AND FIERCE EZ BACK

Valtera EZ and Fierce EZ knock out tough-to-kill weeds with up to 8 weeks of extended control in pulses, wheat and soybeans. These pre-emergent herbicides can help manage Group 2-, 4- and glyphosate-resistant weeds while staying flexible so you can move from pulses to cereals with no cropping restrictions.

FALL APPLIED SPRING WEED CONTROL

When applied in the fall, Valtera EZ and Fierce EZ create a protective layer of herbicide that activates with spring moisture. While you’re busy seeding next spring, Valtera EZ and Fierce EZ can actively help control spring weeds as they emerge. In spring, residual activity of Valtera EZ and Fierce EZ take out multiple flushes of weeds helping your crop get a head start.

GROWER TESTIMONIAL

Fierce EZ worked really well on our farm. We left two check strips so we could tell the difference. It worked really well suppressing the canola, wild mustard, and it worked really well on the kochia as well.

- Megan Moore (Rosetown, SK)

We had a serious kochia problem in this area, and we are finding Valtera is doing an excellent job of controlling kochia in our lentils. And we are able to grow lentils in certain fields that we couldn't in the past.

Why early weed control matters for lentils and peas
