BASF Agricultural Solutions is reporting that Zidua SC herbicide recently received label registration for use on potatoes across Canada. The active ingredient in Zidua SC (pyroxasulfone) has MRLs established in the major export markets for Canadian potatoes: the U.S., Mexico, and Japan. Please check with your processor to ensure Zidua SC is approved for application.
Zidua SC herbicide (Group 15) residual activity controls germinating annual grasses and broadleaf weed seedlings before or soon after crop emergence and can be used to support a variety of tank-mixes. This provides potato growers more options to manage resistant redroot pigweed, common waterhemp, kochia and wild oats.
The expanded label is registered for the 2021 season and beyond.
