Common Questions

What is the Clearfield Production System?

Clearfield is a crop production system combining specific herbicides and seeds from crop varieties that have been traditionally bred for herbicide tolerance and high yields.

The available Clearfield herbicides allow growers to customize weed control for pressures specific to their crops while maintaining sustainability in resistance management plans.

Are Clearfield lentil varieties Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)?

No. All registered or soon-to-be registered Clearfield varieties were developed using traditional plant breeding methods. Therefore, Clearfield crops are treated as non-GMO, conventional crops and are approved for export worldwide.

What are the benefits of the Clearfield Production System for lentils?

The Clearfield Production System for Lentils offers the first herbicide-tolerant lentil varieties in Canada. These include both red and green lentils with a choice of varieties, in all major market classes, that include solid agronomic traits including exceptional yields.

The system also includes a range of crop-safe, broad-spectrum herbicides that can be selected for weed pressures specific to your fields.

In addition, BASF provides an expanded range of crop protection products for pre-seed burn down and protection against disease, registered for Clearfield lentils.

Do I have to buy my Clearfield crop protection products from the Clearfield Lentil Retail?

No, however these retailers are best equipped to advise you in optimizing crop protection of Clearfield lentils with products including herbicides and fungicides and can advise you on harvest management.

Do I need to visit a Clearfield lentil herbicide retailer in order to comply with the IP process?

If you complete your Clearfield Commitment at the time of seed purchase or online, you don’t need to visit a Clearfield lentil herbicide retailer in order to comply with the process and sign your Commitment. These retailers however, can assist you with the completion of the form if you choose to use them.

Can I apply Pursuit® in Clearfield lentils and still comply with the process? Will I be eligible for AgSolutions Rewards?

Pursuit herbicide is not registered for use in Clearfield lentils. Lentil growers who use any non-registered herbicide – even in a tank-mix – will not be in compliance with the Clearfield Commitment process and therefore will be ineligible for related rewards.

I have grown Clearfield Lentils in past but not signed a Clearfield Commitment. I now plan to comply with the process. Am I liable for the years in which I didn't comply with the process? If so, what is the penalty?

Growers new to the process will not be penalized for previous non-compliance.

Are there changes to the review process?

Yes. Clearfield lentil reviews will continue. BASF no longer requires access to growers’ non-lentil related farm business records. BASF still requires a program to measure total Clearfield lentil acres since AgSolutions® Rewards savings are based on accurate acre reports.

If I decline to participate in the review process for Clearfield lentils, will I still be in compliance with the process?

No. Through the Clearfield Commitment, BASF retains the right to review Clearfield lentil growers. Growers who do not comply with the review process are non-compliant and ineligible for related AgSolutions Rewards. They also face the risk of monetary penalties.

If I don't complete a Clearfield-Confirm test, or my seed lot fails the test, am I still in compliance?

No. If you grow farm-saved seed and don’t complete a Clearfield-Confirm test, or your seed lot fails the test, you are not in compliance with the Clearfield Commitment process. Equally important, you will have no guarantee of herbicide tolerance in the event that your seed lot was inadvertently co-mingled with conventional seed. BASF pays the entire cost of the Clearfield-Confirm test.

Will BASF be charging a trait fee in Clearfield Lentils for 2014?

For 2014, BASF will not be charging a trait fee for Clearfield lentils.

What crops can I grow the year after using Odyssey Ultra herbicides?

The following crops can be grown one year after using Odyssey Ultra herbicides:

  • Canary seed
  • Chickpeas
  • Clearfield canola
  • Clearfield canola quality Brassica juncea
  • Durum wheat
  • Field corn
  • Field peas
  • Lentils (incl. Clearfield lentils)
  • Spring barley
  • Spring wheat

Can I re-seed Clearfield lentil seed?

Yes, Clearfield lentil seed can be re-seeded as long as it passes a Clearfield -Confirm test conducted by a Clearfield -Confirm certified lab, and a Clearfield Commitment has been signed.

What crops can I grow after using Ares herbicide?

The following crops can be grown one year after using Ares herbicide:

  • Canary seed
  • Chickpeas
  • Field peas
  • Field corn
  • Clearfield canola
  • Clearfield canola Quality Brassica juncea
  • Lentils including Clearfield lentils

Commitment

New evergreen Clearfield Commitment for lentils

All growers who grow Clearfield® lentils are required to sign a Clearfield Commitment Form for lentils. The Clearfield Commitment is the cornerstone of our dedication to sound stewardship. Beginning in the 2015 growing season, all previous Clearfield Commitment forms for lentils will no longer be in effect. By signing the new evergreen Clearfield Commitment growers will need to sign only once which will allow them to grow Clearfield lentils in 2015 and beyond. This means that growers who signed a Commitment in 2015 or 2016 will not be required to sign again in the future. Similar to previous years, growers must sign and have the Commitments submitted by July 7, 2017.

The Clearfield Commitment form is a license to use Clearfield technology
