Just GO performance with resistance management built in.


  • Just GO. 95% or greater control of most labeled weeds. Whether they are large or small, in large or small crops, even in cool conditions.
  • GoDRI Formulation. Easy to mix and handle. Finally, a dry that mixes like a liquid.
  • Performance and Value. Paradigm controls all your common broadleaf weeds. For kochia, heavy hemp-nettle and volunteer Clearfield canola use Pixxaro
  • Simplicity GoDRI. Tank-mix with Paradigm for excellent wild oat control and other broadleaf weed control
  • NEW Pre-seed uses. Paradigm can now be used as a pre-seed solution ahead of wheat and barley and can be applied in the spring or fall

Grower Experience

I found Paradigm very easy to use, and the GoDRI mixed well. Crop staging was not an issue and weed control is very good. Overall satisfaction with this product was high and would definitely use again!

I like the fact that the Paradigm is a nice sized jug that can easily be measured out for different sized fields.

Darcy B. - Keoma, AB

We had a horrible spring with frost and wet conditions, and lots of stress! We usually have to wait for “perfect" conditions to spray and weeds to be just the right size but with Paradigm it took away all the stress and worry!
