Starane® Flex Herbicide

For pulse crop and potato growers, effective weed control in wheat used to come at a very high price — flexibility. Not anymore, thanks to Starane® Flex herbicide from Dow AgroSciences. Starane Flex controls the toughest broadleaf weeds, including large, more mature and ALS-resistant kochia; wild buckwheat; prickly lettuce; mustards; cleavers; and others. And it does so at an affordable price.
Benefits
  • Starane Flex controls tough broadleaf weeds, including kochia (even large, more mature and ALS-resistant kochia), wild buckwheat, prickly lettuce, mustards, cleavers, volunteer canola and others — optimizing the crop’s ability to reach its full yield potential
  • Excellent crop safety to wheat, barley, durum and oats
  • Because there’s no carryover with Starane Flex, growers can rotate to any crop the following season, making it ideal for cereals-pulse or cereals-potato rotations
  • Relies on two modes of action — Group 2 and Group 4 — for its outstanding results, and reduces the likelihood of resistance development
  • No antagonism when tank-mixing with fungicides, including strobilurins
  • Compatible with insecticides so growers can make one efficient, timely application when weed and insect control windows intersect
  • When broadleaf weed spectrums dictate, growers have the option to tank-mix Starane Flex with MCPA or 2,4-D to broaden the control spectrum to include Russian thistle, pigweed, lambsquarters and other high-anxiety species
