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.

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.

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
  • Spring wheat including Clearfield wheat
  • Spring barley
  • Tame oats
The following crops can be grown two years after using Ares herbicide:
  • Canola
  • Durum wheat
  • Flax
  • Sunflower

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.

Can I apply Pursuit® in Clearfield lentils and still comply with the process? Will I be eligible for BASF Ag 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 BASF Ag 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 BASF Ag Rewards. They also face the risk of monetary penalties.

Commitment

Overview of the Clearfield® Commitment for lentils.

The Clearfield Commitment, an agreement between the grower and BASF, is an important part of growing Clearfield lentils. Not only does it serve as a licence allowing the grower to access the benefits of the Clearfield trait, it also preserves the integrity of the Clearfield trait, delivering the same level of germination and vigour you’ve come to expect from the Clearfield system.

Details of the evergreen Clearfield Commitment for lentils.

Dedicated to improving its processes, BASF updated the Clearfield Commitment to an evergreen Commitment in 2015. That means growers who signed a Commitment in 2015, 2016 or 2017 will not be required to sign again. However, growers who did not purchase Clearfield lentils in the listed years will need to sign a Commitment for the 2018 season.

  • Sales period for Clearfield lentils and registered chemistry is October 1, 2018 – September 30, 2019
  • Deadline for submitting the Clearfield Commitment form is July 9, 2019

Benefits of the Clearfield Production System for lentils.

  • Access and use Clearfield trait technology
  • Access high-performing varieties and innovative chemistry, tailoring solutions to your fields
  • BASF Ag Product Assurance and technical support for the Clearfield Production System
  • Get exclusive offers from our BASF Ag Rewards Program
  • Support ongoing research and development of new Clearfield lentil varieties since a portion of your herbicide purchase is reinvested into the Crop Development Centre (CDC)

Four ways to register and/or sign a Commitment.

  • Via the Secure Grower Website at www.agsolutions.ca. You will require your unique username and password
  • With a Clearfield lentil retailer
  • With your BASF Sales Representative
  • Call BASF Ag Solutions Customer Care at 1-877-371-BASF (2273)

Clearfield-Confirm Testing

You can source seed directly from your local seed grower. Contact BASF Ag Solutions Customer Care to find out who has Clearfield lentil seed or use your own farm-saved seed. Prior to growing from your own seed or selling it to others, you must first have it Clearfield-Confirm® tested to ensure it has not been contaminated with non-Clearfield seed. This test is free for the 2018 growing season and, while you’re at it, you can also get a free pre-seed quality and disease test package.1

1 Limit of one (1) bonus pre-seed test package per eligible farm.
