herbicide option with Alion. The herbicide provides residual control of annual
grassy and broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate, triazine and ALS-resistant
weeds, on pome fruit, stone fruit and tree nuts.  

“Alion
features a completely new mode of action that provides longer-lasting weed
control compared to competitive products,” says David Kikkert, portfolio
manager of horticulture with Bayer CropScience. “By choosing Alion, growers
will benefit from its outstanding performance, and weed control they can depend
on for the entire season.”

“Alion
herbicide is what growers have been waiting for; it offers an extremely low use
rate, excellent environmental safety, and it stays where you put it,” says
Allan Kaastra, field development rep for Eastern Canada with Bayer CropScience.
“Alion enables growers to more effectively rotate modes of action and preserve
the utility of weed management technologies. Alion can be applied to
established orchards of at least three full growing seasons, and if weeds are
present at the time of application, growers can simply tank-mix Alion with a
contact herbicide like Ignite®.”

Alion:

    group 29 herbicide
  • Provides
    long-term residual control
  • Provides
    pre-emergent control for a broad spectrum of weeds
  • Controls
    annual grassy and broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate, triazine and
    ALS-resistant weeds
  • Can be
    applied anytime during the season as long as the ground is not frozen or snow
    covered
  • Is an
    effective resistance management tool
  • Provides
    flexibility because it can be tank-mixed

    low dose rate
