New Herbicide Available for Western Canadian Canola Growers

Command Herbicide from FMC now registered in canola for residual cleaver control

Regina, SK, August 18th 2016 – Canola growers now have a new tool to help manage cleavers in their canola fields.  FMC Canada is excited to announce the registration of Command, a new herbicide for control of cleavers in canola.

Command is a Group 13 pre-emergent herbicide that will provide canola growers with residual control of cleavers and will be an integral part of an overall cleaver management program in canola.  It is an easy to use liquid formulation that can be tank-mixed with glyphosate for a one pass pre-seed application.  Command can be used with any canola herbicide system.

“This product has been a long time coming for FMC and we are excited to bring this option to Western Canada canola growers,” says David Strilchuk, Country Manager with FMC Canada.  Jeff McSymytz, Western Sales Manager, adds “cleavers can be devastating to a canola grower. We have seen what using the pre-emergent of Command can do for early weed removal and cleaver control and are thrilled to bring this technology to the field.”
