Armezon Herbicide Made Available for Corn in Western Canada

Seedling corn Corn growers in Western Canada have another option for post-emergent weed control.

BASF Canada has announced it’s making Armezon herbicide available for corn on the prairies.

Armezon contains a group 27 active ingredient for controlling weeds like wild mustard, barnyard grass and green foxtail. Volunteer canola has recently been added to the label and BASF has applied to the Pest Management Regulatory Agency to also list resistant kochia control. When tank-mixed with glyphosate, the product offers multiple modes of action on annual grasses and broadleaf weeds.

“Armezon gives us a lot of options,” said Warren McCutcheon, a grower from Carman, Manitoba, in the company’s news release. “Volunteer canola comes in late sometimes and we can put Armezon on up until the corn starts filling in the rows and see good control with no damage to the crop.”
