When kochia’s an issue, wheat and barley growers in the brown soil zones know what to do. They call the specialist, DuPont™ Triton® K herbicide.
Powered by Solumax® soluble granules, Triton® K controls kochia (including Group 2 resistant biotypes), along with 38 other broadleaf weeds in spring wheat, durum wheat and barley.
Other than kochia, Triton® K controls cow cockle, flixweed, narrow-leaved hawk’s-beard2, volunteer canola, volunteer Clearfield® canola, volunteer Roundup Ready® canola, annual sow-thistle, annual sunflower, ball mustard, bluebur (≤4-leaf), burdock (≤4-leaf), Canada thistle1, cocklebur, dandelion, daisy fleabane, false flax, false ragweed, giant ragweed, goat’s-beard, hare’s-ear mustard, Indian mustard, lamb’s-quarters, mustards (except Dog and Tansy), plantain, prickly lettuce, ragweeds, redroot pigweed, Russian pigweed, Russian thistle, shepherd’s-purse, stinging nettle, stinkweed, sweet clover, thyme-leaved spurge, tumble mustard, wild buckwheat (1–4 leaf), wild mustard, wild radish, wild sunflower and wormseed mustard.
Triton® K delivers three (3) broadleaf active ingredients from two (2) different Groups (Group 2 and Group 4), for resistance management of kochia and other broadleaf weeds.

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.
Weed resistance can be managed by carefully choosing herbicides that offer multiple groups within a single tank mix. Listen to this podcast to learn about this and other best management practices for controlling herbicide resistant weeds.

INFORMATION & IDEAS
Weed resistance can threaten the long-term viability of any herbicide option. It’s important for growers to protect these tools. Research from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada shows that using herbicides with multiple groups in a single spray is one of the best ways to manage weed resistance.
Dry herbicides are compact and easy to handle. Liquid herbicides are easy to mix and clean out of your tank. With herbicides Powered by DuPont™ Solumax® soluble granules, you can get the best of both worlds.
Research by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada at the University of Saskatchewan show that DuPont™ Solumax® soluble granule technology offers growers simplified tank cleanout. That can save time and effort in the field.
Many of the DuPont™ sulfonylurea (SU) herbicides are powered by Solumax® soluble granules, giving you all the convenience and benefits of a dry herbicide that works like a liquid.
