Early adopters getting control of the most hated, difficult-to-control weeds

All farmers hate weeds. Especially weeds that are hard to kill.

Weeds are yield-robbing nuisances that compete for valuable space in and out of the seed row. Some weeds are fairly easy to deal with and only create limited stress.

Think about how much time is dedicated to weed control at winter meetings and seminars across Western Canada. Farmers are always looking for new strategies and technologies to get control of the yield robbing weeds.

As you will hear from two Western Canadian farmers in the video below, having a broad-spectrum, flexible option for controlling these hard-to-kill weeds early is critical to protecting maximum yield potential.

We would like to thank the LUXXUR early adopters, Daryl Tuck and Hugh Stewart for participating in this video.
