EDGE MICROACTIV HERBICIDE
Edge® MicroActiv® herbicide is a powerful tool for weed control in canola, lentils and other broadleaf crops. Edge MicroActiv contains the active ingredient ethalfluralin, a group 3 mode of action herbicide that controls weeds (such as kochia), which are resistant to other herbicides. Edge MicroActiv is broad-spectrum, controlling many important weeds plaguing growers in Western and Eastern Canada.
MANAGE HERBICIDE RESISTANCE
Herbicide layering is a recommended way to use multiple modes of action to help manage herbicide resistance. Use Edge® MicroActiv® to control kochia and Group 1 and Group 2 resistant wild oats.
Get your Edge® MicroActiv® on as soon as you can. Spring and fall are both options, but we recommend applying at the first available opportunity to make sure it gets done.

FORMULATION + PACKAGING

Apply Edge® MicroActiv® with a floater, a Valmar® applicator, or another air-flo type applicator to ensure proper coverage of soil. Your local dealer may have a floater or rental equipment so check with them. Valmar® has many product options, but one of the best is to mount a Valmar box directly onto your harrow bar for one-pass application and incorporation.
