Ask growers what their toughest weed problems are, and the word cleavers is never far away. In fact, according to a 2009 survey conducted by Stratus Market Research, cleavers ranks #7 among annual broadleaf weeds targeted for control in Western Canada.
What makes this tricky is that not all broadleaf herbicides can control cleavers. Many offer only suppression, if that. DuPont, on the other hand, offers growers several herbicides that control cleavers effectively.
DuPont™ Barricade® II, launched in 2010, leverages the strengths of three active ingredients from two (2) different herbicide groups (Group 2 and Group 4) to provide control of a broad range of broadleaf weeds including cleavers.
DuPont™ Triton® C provides cleaver control equivalent to the best on the market today. It attacks cleavers with two (2) herbicide groups (Group 2 and Group 4). Both groups significantly contribute to the control of cleavers, which means it can actively manage resistance in cleaver populations.
DuPont™ Harmony® MAX is an excellent option if you want to control grass and broadleaf weeds in one pass. With two (2) different broadleaf groups (Group 2 and Group 4) as well as an exclusive grass herbicide with the surfactant built in, Harmony® MAX is an efficient and effective way to control cleavers.
If pre-seed, chemfallow or post-harvest weed control is your preference, consider DuPont™ Express® PRO. Adding Express® PRO to glyphosate delivers up to 15 days of extended control on cleavers and other broadleaf weeds.
