BASF herbicide label expanded for use on potatoes

March 23, 2021  By Fruit and Vegetable

BASF Canada Agricultural Solutions has received registration for the label expansion of Zidua SC on potatoes. Zidua SC is already registered for use on annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in several crops, including chickpeas, field corn, dry field peas, lentils and soybeans.

Zidua SC’s Group 15 chemistry delivers control of tough weeds, including resistant redroot pigweed, kochia, waterhemp, green and yellow foxtail, with a wide window of application from early pre-seed to early post-emergence in multiple registered crops.

“Applying Zidua SC pre-emergent will help potato growers to manage tough to control weeds, including multiple-resistant kochia and common waterhemp,” said Trevor Latta, brand manager for corn, soybeans and horticulture with BASF.


Zidua SC’s residual activity controls germinating weed seedlings before or soon after emergence and can be used to support a variety of tank mixes.
