A unique high-performance herbicide with three modes of action that provides all-in-one weed control is now available to wheat growers. Arysta LifeScience announces the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has granted registration for BATALIUM Herbicide for use in spring, durum and winter wheat.
BATALIUM is a cross-spectrum herbicide that provides rapid and long-lasting control of tough grasses in wheat while also eliminating a wide spectrum of broadleaf weeds, all in one application. Its three distinct modes of action, in Groups 2, 4 and 6, also make the herbicide a valuable resistance management tool.
“BATALIUM offers unmatched weed control and flexibility that meets the growing demands of wheat growers, today and in the future,” said Kathy Seitzinger, Marketing Manager – Herbicides, Arysta LifeScience. “By simplifying grass and broadleaf weed control with one application, BATALIUM is a better way to control weeds, helping wheat growers achieve more efficient weed control and simply get more done.”
Featuring best-in-class crop safety, BATALIUM can be used in a variety of crop rotation programs for control of a vast array of broadleaf weeds such as common lambsquarters, wild buckwheat, wild mustard, pigweed, Russian thistle and shepherd’s-purse. BATALIUM also provides quick knockdown and residual control of tough grasses, such as green and yellow foxtail, wild oats and others. BATALIUM is also tank-mixable for even broader-spectrum control of weeds.
For growers looking for a better way to control weeds, BATALIUM is a welcomed addition in their crop protection toolbox,” Seitzinger says. “Our extensive testing of the product has shown consistent performance in controlling competitive weeds in wheat while offering significant time-savings advantages of a one-pass application.”
Application should be made to the crop from 2-leaf stage up to 60 days prior to harvest. Winter wheat applications can be made in the fall or spring. As for weeds, make application to control grass weeds from 1-4 leaf stage. Application should be made to control broadleaf weeds up to 4 inches tall.
