UPL AgroSolutions Canada announces that the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has granted registration of STRIM MTZ herbicide for potatoes. The new option features two modes of action to control some of the most stubborn annual grasses and broadleaf weeds.
“Canadian growers need flexible, new solutions they can trust on their farms,” says Chris Nowlan, marketing portfolio manager, UPL AgroSolutions Canada. “New STRIM MTZ herbicide provides potato growers a better way to manage weeds, resulting in more efficient weed control in just one application.”
As a Group 5 and Group 15 herbicide, STRIM MTZ jherbicide provides early-season, residual control of broadleaf and grassy weeds. The powerful combination of the two active ingredients, S-metolachlor and metribuzin, is effective against hard-to-kill redroot pigweed, eastern black nightshade, lamb’s quarters and common and giant ragweed. For even greater resistance management options, STRIM MTZ can be rotated with different herbicide groups that control the same weeds in a field.
“As growers’ needs evolve, UPL continues to offer unique product solutions to growers in Canada,” Nowlan adds. “The registration of STRIM MTZ gives growers another trusted herbicide in their toolbox to achieve optimum control of stubborn annual grasses and broadleaf weeds while managing resistant weed issues.”
