November 4, 2014, Mississauga, Ont – Growers in Eastern Canada now have a new and improved weed management solution for pre-plant and pre-harvest use. BASF recently announced it has received registration from the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) for Eragon LQ herbicide for the 2015 season.

Eragon LQ delivers weed control in a new liquid formulation for faster fill-up times and improved tank cleanout. Eragon LQ is a unique Group 14 chemistry that uses the active ingredient Kixor to help growers improve their glyphosate burn down in the spring and improve their harvest in the fall. It provides improved control of weeds like lamb’s-quarters and Canada fleabane, including Group 2-, triazine- and glyphosate-resistant weed biotypes.

“We know growers prefer liquid formulations and Eragon LQ is another example of BASF’s commitment to providing growers with the solutions they need to produce the best crop possible,” said Sean Chiki, brand manager for corn and soybean herbicides at BASF Canada. “Eragon LQ has also received registration for pre-harvest weed management applications in cereals. Aside from pre-plant applications, this new use pattern gives growers another application window to manage tough to control weeds, combine cereals more efficiently and control perennials for cleaner fields in the spring.”
