Manage inputs for a better yield outcome.

Herbicide resistance comes from natural mutations in weed genetics. When a single mode of action is used repeatedly, you’re more likely to select for a resistant weed. Using multiple modes of action is a good line of defense against resistance—and applying herbicides during the critical period for weed control, from 5th to 10th node in lentils, is crucial for establishing a higher yield.1

A seasoned plan. For the whole season.

The Advanced Weed Control Program for Clearfield® lentils frees the crop from weeds during the critical period with a pre-seed application of Heat® Complete herbicide. The pre-seed herbicide provides extended residual activity for secondary flushes, setting up the crop for effective in-crop applications of Odyssey® Ultra NXT or Solo® Ultra herbicide.

Advance against weeds.

The Advanced Weed Control Program is the go-to program for managing problem weeds, such as green and yellow foxtail, lamb’s quarters, redroot pigweed, volunteer canola, wild buckwheat and wild oats.

Pre-seed: Heat Complete

With both Group 14 and Group 15 tank mixed with glyphosate, Heat Complete establishes cleaner fields during the most critical time. As the ultimate pre-seed burndown, it provides extended residual activity on grassy and broadleaf weeds. Heat Complete delays secondary flushes up to 4 weeks after application, setting up the crop for an in-crop application.

Start strong by finishing off weeds.

With control or suppression of Group 1-, 2- and 9-resistant weeds, Heat Complete herbicide provides a strong start against weeds. This includes tough weeds, such as kochia, lamb’s quarters, green and yellow foxtail, common waterhemp and wild oats.

  • Heat Complete provides the ultimate pre-seed burndown with extended residual activity on tough-to-control weeds.

In-crop: Odyssey Ultra NXT

Odyssey Ultra NXT is an in-crop herbicide for early-season flushing control of grassy and broadleaf weeds. With a wide window of application, it can be applied from 1 to 9 node to provide control of grassy weeds and multiple flushing weeds.

Protection that outlasts stubborn weeds.

Odyssey Ultra NXT provides flushing weed control and helps manage problem weeds, including cleavers, redroot pigweed, volunteer canola, green foxtail (including Group 1- or 2-resistant), yellow foxtail and wild oats (including Group 1- or 2-resistant).

In-crop: Solo Ultra

Solo Ultra is an in-crop herbicide with two modes of action for control of a wide spectrum of grasses and broadleaf weeds—not to mention the maximum re-cropping flexibility it provides. Its built-in adjuvant and wide window of application simplifies the process at spray timing.

Next up: Disease Management

Lentils are highly susceptible to disease. With disease pressure on the rise, a well-timed preventative fungicide program can help you manage key diseases including anthracnose, ascochyta and sclerotinia.

The Advanced Weed Control Program

The Advanced Weed Control Program from BASF takes the guesswork out of weed control and resistance management strategies. Follow the program from a complete solution in your peas, lentils, soybeans and corn.

Ways to bring weeds under your control.

Whether it’s the ultimate pre-seed/pre-emergent burndown or exceptional in-crop control, you’ll find solutions to keep your fields clean all season long.

The right stuff. At the right time.

Timing herbicides right is critical for effectively reducing weed competition in peas and lentils. By spraying according to crop and environmental conditions, you can prevent substantial yield losses.
