Oilseed and pulse growers have a potent new defense against a weed that's steadily becoming more prevalent in Western Canada.

DuPont Crop Protection announced today that DuPont™ Assure® II herbicide has been registered for control of downy brome in canola, flax, peas, lentils, dry beans and other oilseed and pulse crops. Assure® II is also registered on these crops to control foxtail barley, green and yellow foxtail, volunteer cereals, wild oats and other grassy weeds.

According to Todd Friday, Market Segment Manager with DuPont Crop Protection today's announcement is great news for growers. "Downy brome is a weed that's expanding rapidly across the West," he says. "It's also hard to control, and until now, no product in the category was registered for this purpose. This label addition is another reason why Assure® II brings more value to growers than competitive products."

In fact, as Friday explains, Assure® II is one of the most useful and versatile products on the market, period. Growers like its wide application window, applicability to many crops, lack of re-cropping restrictions and long list of tank-mix partners. Among these tank-mixes, growers count on Assure® II to bring extra grass activity to Liberty® herbicide in InVigor® canola. It's also a trusted addition to glyphosate in Roundup Ready® canola.

Says Friday: "Downy brome is now a significant issue in Western Canada, and we're pleased to offer growers the powerful, dependable action of Assure® II."
