Ares


Ares™ herbicide provides superior, broad spectrum, weed control for growers with broadleaf and grassy weed challenges. With a user-friendly liquid formulation and wide window of application, Ares is the best choice for the Clearfield® Production System for canola and lentils. 

Ares delivers:

  • Consistent and reliable, in-crop grass and broadleaf weed control
  • Superior control of Lamb’s quarters, Wild buckwheat, Cleavers and Volunteer Canola.
  • Wide window of application on both crop and weeds
  • User-friendly, liquid formulation

How it works

  • Ares herbicide combines two active ingredients to deliver reliable control of grassy and broadleaf weeds for the Clearfield Production System for canola and lentils.
  • Applied post emergence, Ares is a systemic herbicide that is absorbed through the roots and leaves and moves quickly throughout the plant.
  • Weeds stop growing soon after treatment and continue to effectively die off up to two weeks after application.
  • Ares also provides enough residual activity for control of tough, small, shallow-germinating seeds without compromising seeding in the following year.

When to apply

Ares provides a wide window of application, helping you control early-emerging weeds before they affect your yield.

Application tips

  • The surfactant Merge®  is required for optimal herbicide activity and is included in the Ares packaging. No additional Merge is required..
  • Do not apply if near-freezing temperatures (below 5°C) are forecasted. Weeds will not be actively growing, preventing optimum herbicide performance.
  • Apply in a spray volume of 100 L/ha (10 gal/acre)
  • For applications on dense weed infestations and thick canopies, use a higher water volume.
  • Ares herbicide is rainfast 3 hours after application.
