Management practices weeds can’t resist.
Herbicide resistance occurs when the same mode of action is used repeatedly to control a weed species. Not only is it important to use multiple modes of effective action to minimize the risk for resistance, but it’s also crucial to apply them at the proper time throughout the season. In peas, that’s the critical period for weed control from emergence until 6th node.1
1 The critical weed-free period is the amount of time a crop needs to develop, absent of weed competition in order to maximize yield potential. In field peas, this period is from emergence to third node (Harker et al. AAFC, 2011).

Watch tough weeds back down
The Advanced Weed Control Program helps keep fields clean during the critical period for weed control. It’s the go-to program for managing problem weeds, such as cleavers, redroot pigweed, stinkweed, kochia, volunteer canola and wild oats.
Pre-seed: Heat LQ
Heat LQ pre-seed herbicide provides the first layer of defense against weeds. With a Group 14 chemistry, it delivers burndown of tough broadleaf weeds in as few as 3 to 5 days.2 Applied at the high rate with glyphosate, it provides residual activity that suppresses key flushing broadleaf weeds in peas.
2 Depending on growing conditions.
The best defense is a strong offense.
Heat LQ herbicide manages tough weeds from the start of the season, including cleavers, redroot pigweed, stinkweed, volunteer canola, wild buckwheat and wild mustard.
- Heat LQ provides the fastest burndown under cold conditions.
- Volunteer glyphosate tolerant canola 12 days after application at 10°C
- Cleavers 12 days after application at 10°C
- Kochia (Group 2 and glyphosate resistant) 12 days after application at 10°C
Pre-seed: Heat Complete
Heat Complete herbicide provides the ultimate pre-seed burndown with extended residual activity on grassy and broadleaf weeds, such as wild oats and kochia. This includes activity on Group 1-, 2- and 9-resistant weeds. With both Group 14 and Group 15 tank mixed with glyphosate, Heat Complete eliminates weeds during the most critical time and establishes a cleaner field for an in-crop application.
The burndown nothing can beat. Not even weeds.
Heat Complete herbicide is the ultimate pre-seed option in the Advanced Weed Control Program for peas. It provides multiple modes of effective action to control tough weeds, such as green and yellow foxtail, kochia, lamb’s quarters, waterhemp and wild oats.
- Heat Complete provides the ultimate pre-seed burndown with extended residual activity on tough-to-control weeds.
In-crop: Viper ADV
Viper ADV is an in-crop herbicide that provides broad-spectrum control of later germinating broadleaf weeds and grasses. Its user-friendly, liquid formulation makes it a convenient in-crop application from 3rd to 6th node. Plus, it offers excellent rotational flexibility for your follow-cropping needs.
Tough weeds? Double the action against them.
As part of the Advanced Weed Control Program, Viper ADV helps combat herbicide resistance by providing different modes of action than applied pre-seed. With Group 2 and Group 6 chemistry, Viper ADV helps manage weeds, such as lamb’s quarters, redroot pigweed, volunteer canola and stinkweed.
- Comparison of resistant kochia control
- Comparison of flushing control of key weeds (9 to 28 days after treatment)
- Comparison of flushing control of key weeds (14 to 29 days after treatment)
- Cleaver control, 7 days after application of Viper ADV herbicide
- Volunteer canola control with application of Viper ADV herbicide vs glyphosate

Peas can be highly susceptible to disease during flowering. A well-timed, preventative strategy can help you manage key diseases, including mycosphaerella and sclerotinia for increased yield potential.
