Heat LQ tank-mixed with glyphosate as a harvest aid provides fast, complete crop and weed dry down to speed up and improve harvest.

As a harvest aid in canola, Heat LQ helps facilitate straight cutting with crop dry down and control of perennial weeds to ensure cleaner fields at harvest and next spring. See how Heat LQ herbicide measures up in field scale trials and research authorization trials.

Hear it from the growers.

  • Has only been a couple of days, but very impressed so far. I was pleased with the speed, in 4 days the weeds were dead.

  • Weeds were burnt off very early compared to glyphosate only.

    Grant Payant
    Assiniboia, SK
  • The weeds were burned off quicker than RoundUp alone.

  • Worked really fast, dandelion and hawk’s beard control was good.

Growers are straight cutting across Western Canada.
Here’s why.

More and more Canadian growers are straight cutting all or parts of their canola acres. By speeding up field operations used for harvest, straight cutting helps save on time, labour and equipment costs. Plus, growers have reported that straight cutting can give canola more time to mature, leading to larger seeds with higher oil content. There’s no better time to start straight cutting.

Get time on your side with Heat LQ.

Applying Heat LQ helps facilitate straight cutting by quickening the rate of your crop and weed dry down, resulting in improved field uniformity and a cleaner sample and reduced seed moisture. With well-defined pre-harvest application timing, Heat LQ is a great option for straight cutting any type of canola, including Roundup Ready®, Liberty Link® and Clearfield® varieties.
