Performance tips

  1. Emerged weeds – use with a burndown herbicide partner like glyphosate and BlackHawk or GoldWing
  2. Flushing weeds – residual activity for newly emerging weeds
  3. Application flexibility – Fierce EZ alone can be applied up to 3 days post-seeding soybeans, chickpeas and field peas
  4. DO NOT incorporate after application or prior to seeding
  5. Pre-seeding applications require the use of minimum disturbance seeding systems
  6. Leave a small checkstrip in the field to show performance
