Heat LQ - New liquid formulation.

The convenient and easy-to-use liquid formulation of new Heat® LQ provides faster fill-up times and improved tank clean out. Very rainfast and quickly absorbed, Heat LQ delivers complete weed control even under cool conditions. Heat LQ can be tank-mixed with glyphosate and applied pre-seed, pre-emergence or in chemfallow applications.

The ultimate pre-seed burndown.

Heat LQ herbicide complements and improves your glyphosate application with broadleaf weed control in as few as 3 to 5 days (depending on growing conditions). The innovative Group 14 chemistry provides an alternative mode of action that helps delay the onset of resistance and manages Group 2 and glyphosate resistant weeds.

Heat LQ pre-harvest

Heat LQ harvest aid provides the ultimate crop and weed. It’s the only herbicide that does both.

Heat LQ for pre-harvest

Heat LQ is applied pre-seed or pre-emergent for broadleaf weed control in cereals and select pulse crops. It can also be used for chemfallow applications on actively growing weeds.

  • New, convenient liquid formulation provides faster fill-up times and improved tank clean out.
  • Very rainfast and quickly absorbed for quick, complete weed control even under cool conditions.
  • The active ingredient, Kixor® is rapidly absorbed by roots and leaves then quickly mobilizes throughout the weed for control in as few as 3 to 5 days (depending on growing conditions).
  • Its Group 14 chemistry provides an alternative mode of action to help control weeds that are resistant to Group 2 herbicides and glyphosate.

Heat LQ can be applied pre-seed/pre-emerge on the following crops.

Cereals Barley, Tame oats, Wheat (spring, winter, durum), Canary seed and Corn
Pulses Chickpeas (kabuli), Field peas, Lentils, Soybeans

The ultimate weed burndown.

In addition to the weeds controlled on the glyphosate label, Heat LQ provides excellent control of the following weeds up to the 8 leaf stage.

  • Canada fleabane1
  • Cleavers (4 whorls)
  • Dandelion3 (15 cm height)
  • Flixweed
  • Kochia1 (15 cm height)
  • Lamb’s quarters
  • Narrow-leaved hawk’s beard (8 cm height)
  • Redroot pigweed2
  • Round-leaved mallow
  • Stinkweed2
  • Volunteer canola2,4
  • Wild buckwheat2
  • Wild mustard2

1 Includes Group 2-resistant and glyphosate-resistant biotypes.
2 For suppression of secondary flushes, use higher application rate of 59 g/ac (146 g/ha).
3 Top growth burndown control only of perennial plants, control of spring germinating plants.
4 All herbicide-tolerant canola systems including glyphosate-tolerant canola.

Heat LQ herbicides delivers fast control at cool temperatures.

Hear what growers say about the results they've seen.

  • It’s important to have another mode of action on our farm when we’re spraying, and Heat fits that really well.

    Brian Andrew
    Craven, SK
  • I would recommend Heat LQ after using it just one year. It was easy to handle and it worked really well.

    Ken Cubbon
    North Battleford, SK
  • I would definitely recommend Heat LQ to anyone to try next year.

    Dennis Connor
    Beechy, SK
  • Based on what we’ve seen this year, I would definitely recommend Heat LQ. It’s done an excellent job on our farm.

The critical weed-free period in peas.

All crops have a defined critical weed-free period. Weed competition during this stage can cause substantial loss in yield potential right up front. For peas the period is from emergence to the 3rd node.

Keeping peas free of weeds early and right through to canopy is essential for higher yields.

Keeps early peas weed-free.

The PeasPlus 2-pass solution is a recommendation specifically designed to keep peas clear during the critical weed-free period. This manages weed competition, allowing the crop to maintain its potential.

It starts with a Heat® LQ herbicide high-rate application at pre-seed/pre-emergence, then follows up with Viper® ADV herbicide in-crop from the 3rd to 6th node in peas.

The result is management of weeds from crop emergence, through the critical weed-free period right through to canopy closure. Target weeds include kochia, cleavers, redroot pigweed, stinkweed, volunteer canola, wild buckwheat and wild mustard, all of which are supported by BASF.

The ultimate burndown in pre-seed or pre-emergence.

  • Residual suppression of key flushing weeds (at high rate of 30 acres per case).
  • Broadleaf control in as few as 3 to 5 days.
  • Group 14 chemistry controls weeds resistant to glyphosate and Group 2 herbicides.
