How it Works

  • Think of the weeds that really destroy your canola yields. Chances are good that Tensile herbicide can rid them from your fields.
  • Tensile delivers superior wild buckwheat control compared to glyphosate. It even provides suppression of Canada thistle and sow thistle.

Application Tips

  • Tensile should be applied early to maximize yield.
  • To optimize herbicide performance, apply Tensile in warm weather to actively growing weeds.
  • Do not apply Tensile if freezing temperatures are forecast or immediately after a frost or unseasonably cold weather.
  • Temperatures near freezing (below 5°C) will prevent optimum herbicide performance because the weeds are not actively growing.

Please note: Use on Clearfield XCEED canola will cause crop injury

When to Apply

  • Tensile herbicide should be applied from the 2 - 6 leaf stage of Clearfield canola development and after weeds have emerged.
  • To control broadleaf weeds, apply Tensile from the cotyledon to the 4-leaf stage of weed development. To control grasses, apply Tensile when the weeds are between the 1 and 4 true leaf stages, until early tillering.

How Much to Apply

  • One case of Tensile herbicide treats 40 acres and should be applied in a minimum water volume of 100 L/ha (40 L/ac).
  • As with most contact herbicides, Tensile requires higher water volumes for optimal control.
  • Merge® adjuvant is included in the case and should be mixed in at a rate of 0.5% v/v.

Follow Crops

The year following Tensile herbicide application, the following crops may be grown in the treated field:

Canary seed
Canola
Clearfield canola
Clearfield XCEED
Durum wheat
Field peas**
Flax
Spring barley
Spring wheat
Tame oats
Winter wheat

**Some re-cropping restrictions may apply under certain soil/environmental conditions.
