PERFORMANCE TIPS
CONQUER is a contact herbicide and must be applied directly on growing
weeds for effective results.
1. Droplet size – use a combination of nozzle type and sprayer speed to
   achieve a fine to medium droplet size. Adjust sprayer speed to optimize
   weed coverage.
2. Water volume – use 10 gal./ac. water volume for adequate coverage
   on weeds.

VALTERA:
ALL-SEASON
WEED CONTROL
Valtera™ is the one product that can be the answer to the problems of fall, spring and in-season
weed control with its extended activity. A fall application of Valtera, in a tank mix with glyphosate,
will clean up weeds that appear after harvest and provide residual control that keeps working
through the winter and will re-ignite with spring moisture. It’s a simple way to spread your workload,
and get a jump on spring weed control. Alternatively, spray in the spring with glyphosate to kill
early season weeds while retaining the benefits of up to eight weeks of extended control.

SEED TREATMENT
OPTIONS
Assessing the performance of your crops is a key part of planning for next year.
Considering the pest pressures in your cereal, soybean and pulse crops is an
integral part of choosing a good seed treatment option. Seed treatments provide
valuable protection for seed and seedlings from pest pressures, and help ensure
your valuable crop can reach its full performance potential.
Nufarm has two effective solutions to the problems plaguing pulse, soybean and
cereal crops in Western Canada – INTEGO™ Solo and NipsIt™ SUITE.

APHANOMYCES IS EVERYWHERE
“If you’ve grown pulses in the last five years, your soil is
 probably harbouring aphanomyces,” says Roger Rotariu,
 Canadian Marketing Manager, Nufarm Agriculture Inc.
There is general agreement among researchers in                INTEGO Solo is a Group 22 fungicide registered
 Western Canada that aphanomyces spores are naturalized        for the control of pythium in all labeled crops, and
 across the prairies.                                          phytophthora in soybeans, and also suppresses seed
So, what do you do for this upcoming season?                   rot caused by aphanomyces in field peas and lentils.
For starters, it’s best not to reseed pulses into the          Because INTEGO Solo is a different chemical group
same fields. But to limit the potential spread of the          than other seed treatments, it strengthens the fight
disease, you’ll need the protection of INTEGO Solo             against pythium resistance when mixed with other
seed treatment. INTEGO Solo is the only seed treatment         products. Together, the combination of seed treatments
registered to protect your pulses from aphanomyces.            will provide control of other troublesome diseases

“If you are planting pulses in fields where you aren’t sure
 about the level of aphanomyces, we still recommend
 INTEGO Solo to limit the increase of oospores, and keep
 the overall inoculum levels down for future growing
 seasons,” says Rotariu. “But more importantly, using
 INTEGO Solo in conjunction with other leading broad-
 spectrum seed treatments will give your pulse crops the

the last several decades across Canada. Researchers with Agriculture and
Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) have been tracking herbicide-resistant weeds
across the prairies since the 1990s. Research scientist Hugh Beckie estimates
that nearly 50% of all cultivated land on the prairies had resistant biotypes
in the early 2000s, and that number is climbing.

Based on the latest AAFC weed surveys, Beckie expects that a staggering 38 million acres
of cropland in Western Canada is infested with herbicide-resistant weeds. The costs
to growers for dealing with these hard-to-control weeds is estimated at $1.1-$1.5 billion
a year in increased herbicide use and decreased crop yield.                                                                                                                                                                          2.   Courtesy of pestmanager.ca
