“We first used Authority┬« Charge in 2012 on our flax fields. Our biggest weed issues in flax have been kochia and buckwheat, as well as volunteer cereals. Our weed management program includes a burn-off followed up with an in crop broadleaf weed and grass control product. We added Authority Charge into the mix to get better control and because we wanted to rotate our chemistries. We had great success with Authority Charge, the fields are cleaner and have good control of kochia. With the chance of roundup resistance up and group 2 resistance in kochia, we like the idea of rotating new herbicides, in hopes of preventing resistance. We have also used Authority Charge in peas and have been very pleased with the job it has done.”
