Developed through conventional breeding techniques, the Clearfield® Plus Production System for wheat utilizes two-gene technology for improved crop safety. When paired with Beyond® herbicide and performance-enhancing methylated seed oil, you can better manage some of the toughest weeds in your fields, such as downy brome/cheatgrass, jointed goatgrass and feral rye.
Features and benefits of the Clearfield Plus Production System for wheat:
- Provides broad-spectrum grass and broadleaf weed control, resulting in cleaner fields and greater yields
- Reduces dockage due to presence of weed seed in the harvested grain
- Reduces the potential for grain discounts by helping manage feral rye, leading to a lower percentage of foreign matter in the grain
- Helps manage contrasting wheat classes (non-Clearfield) in wheat fields
To preserve the long-term efficacy of the Clearfield Plus Production System for wheat, certain stewardship practices must be followed. Wheat producers are asked to help protect and prolong the usefulness of this technology by following specific requirements and recommendations to help prevent weed resistance.
In addition to the Clearfield Plus Production System for wheat, BASF offers innovative seed treatments, herbicides and fungicides, allowing wheat growers to customize a high-yielding program for their individual fields.
