For lighter populations of kochia (including Group 2-resistant biotypes) in spring wheat, durum wheat and barley, PrecisionPac® DB-10550 herbicide is a great option.
It is designed for growers in the brown soil zones and will also provide excellent control of annual weeds like wild buckwheat (up to the 5-leaf stage), flixweed, narrow-leaved hawk’s-beard and Russian thistle.
Other major weeds controlled include annual smartweed, chickweed, cow cockle, hemp-nettle, lamb’s-quarters, redroot pigweed, shepherd’s purse, stinkweed, volunteer canola (excluding Clearfield® varieties) and wild mustard.
PrecisionPac® DB-10550 can be tank-mixed with DuPont™ Harmony® Grass or Horizon® and contains active ingredients from both Groups 2 and 4, making it a smart choice in terms of resistance management .
As a PrecisionPac® herbicide, PrecisionPac® DB-10550 also gives you the flexibility to customize your package size to fit your sprayer tank or field size.

- Kochia is a growing problem in Western Canada, but one that can be managed with diligent weed control strategies. Preventing seed production and managing herbicide resistance are two of the most important approaches.
DuPont™ PrecisionPac® herbicides are precisely customized for field size or sprayer capacity. Alberta wheat grower Colin Marshall figures this customization takes 10% off the time it takes to spray his 7,000-acre farm.
