How it Works

  • Basagran Forté is a Group 6 herbicide that works by contact action.
  • Thorough coverage of the leaves is important for consistent weed control because uptake into the plant occurs primarily through foliage.

Application Tips

Ground Application

  • Use sprayers equipped with standard flat fan pesticide nozzles with the recommended spray volume, pressure and additives.
  • Tilt spray nozzles 45 degrees forward to ensure better coverage.

Spray Volume

  • Minimum 40 L/ac (100 L/ha). Use larger water volumes (up to 120 L/ac) for weeds at the upper limit of their recommended stage for treatment.

Spray Pressure 

  • Minimum 275 kPa. Use higher pressure (use up to 425 kPa) for weeds at the upper limit of their recommended stage for treatment.

Note

  • Use a minimum of 80 L/ac if crop canopy or heavy weed population interferes with thorough spray coverage, or under cool temperature.

When to Apply

  • Although the time of application should primarily relate to the stage of weed growth, the crop must also be in a tolerant stage as shown below.
  • The information on usual crop stage for optimum weed control may also serve as a guide to spray timing.

Crop Application Timing

Crop Tolerance Stage Usual stage of crop for optimum weed control
Beans (dry) including white beans and kidney beans Tolerant after 1st trifoliate leaf has fully expanded. 1 to 3 trifoliate leaves
Corn (grain, silage, sweet and seed) Tolerant at any growth stage 1 to 5 leaf stage
Faba beans Tolerant after 2 or 3 leaf stage or crop is 10 cm high Soon after 3 leaf stage
Flax (excluding low linolenic acid varieties) Tolerant when crop is 5 cm or higher Soon after crop reaches 5 cm
Peas (field and processing) Tolerant after 3 nodes are present Soon after 3 pairs of leaves form
Soybeans Tolerant at any growth stage Unifoliate to two expanded trifoliate leaves usually 18 to 28 days after planting

How Much to Apply

Basagran Forté is available in cases of two 10-litre jugs or bulk, depending on individual requirements.

Rates

Add Basagran Forté 0.5 - 0.7 L/ac + PURSUIT® 125 mL + Nitrogen Source 0.8 L/ac.

Add 0.5 L/ac Blazer to 0.5 L/ac rate of Basagran Forté.

Add Basagran Forté 0.9 L/ac + Pinnacle 2.2 - 3.2 g/ac herbicides.

Add Basagran Forté 0.7 L/ac + Pinnacle 2.2 - 3.2 g/ac herbicides.


Mixing Instructions

  1. Fill the tank half full with clean water. Start agitation or by-pass system.

When using the Basagran Forté + Pinnacle tank-mix, prepare a Pinnacle water slurry in a separate container with clean water before adding to spray tank on repeat tank loads.
  4. Add correct amount of Basagran Forté and agitate 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Add remainder of water, agitate and spray.
