Fierce® is a pre-emergent residual herbicide that is the next evolution in extended, residual control of herbicide resistant grass and broadleaf weeds in soybeans, wheat and corn.


Active ingredients:  Group 14 (flumioxazin), Group 15 (pyroxasulfone)
Application timing:  Pre-plant or pre-emergent for soybeans,  7 days prior to planting  field corn and spring wheat
Treatment area:  One case treats 128 acres
Product rate:  85 g/ac.
Tank-mix order:  Fierce, BlackHawk ( if used), glyphosate
Notes: Apply Fierce up to 3 days after planting soybeans, and should be applied a minimum of 7 days before planting spring wheat or corn, planting after herbicide application requires the use of minimum to zero till drills, requires moisture to activate in the soil and provides up to 8 weeks residual control
PCP #:  31117

Weed Control Challenge

Remember when glyphosate or other non-residual herbicides were all it took to control wild oats and most broadleaf weeds? Unfortunately, herbicide-resistant weeds mean that Groups 1, 2, 4 and 9 can’t handle the problems alone anymore. Maximizing soybean and wheat yields depend on residual control of tough grass and broadleaf weeds.

Nufarm Solution

Fierce® herbicide delivers the broadest spectrum and longest residual weed control available for IP, conventional and herbicide-tolerant soybeans and wheat crops. Pyroxasulfone is registered for suppression of wild oats and control of various foxtail and brome species at a rate consistent with the upper registered range of Fierce. This provides another option to reduce the effect of Group 1 & 2 resistant wild oats and grasses, and other annual weeds that impact yield and harvest management. Fierce controls resistant weeds before they become a problem.


  • Better performance than other leading herbicides on tough broadleaf weeds
  • Grassy weed management for cleaner fields with a new mode of action
  • Longer control with residual activity that lasts up to eight weeks
  • Two active ingredients (proven Group 14 and new Group 15)  for stronger resistance management for 2, 4, 5 and glyphosate resistant weeds and glyphosate resistant biotypes


  • Two modes of action work on the toughest weeds including dandelion, fleabane, nightshade and pigweed species
  • Tank mixable with most burndown and pre-emergent herbicides (i.e. glyphosate and BlackHawk)
  • No surfactant required


  1. Emerged weeds – use with glyphosate
  2. Flushing weeds – residual activity for newly emerging weeds
  3. Emerged crop – Fierce alone can be used up to 3 days post seeding but prior to emergence of registered crops other than wheat
  4. Refer to label or crop guide for rates and use patterns
  5. DO NOT incorporate after application or anytime prior to seeding
