New DuPont Harmony MAX herbicide
Western Canada wheat and durum growers can manage weeds and improve productivity with new DuPont Harmony MAX herbicide. It provides convenient one-pass control of tough broadleaf weeds, as well as wild oats and green foxtail, in one easy-to-use case, a company release says.
The product combines both grass and broadleaf control in one 40-acre case. Plus, the grass herbicide in Harmony MAX has the surfactant built right in, so there are fewer jugs to handle and rinse.
Many researchers recommend the use of a tankmix with active ingredients from multiple groups to prevent and manage resistant species. MAX contains three broadleaf active ingredients from two different herbicide groups (2 and 4). Harmony MAX provides control of a wide range of broadleaf weeds like wild buckwheat, cleavers and kochia, including Group 2-resistant biotypes.
