Grain company Viterra has added another Group 1 product to its new roster of company-branded herbicides, this time for Prairie spring and winter wheat, barley and rye producers.
The product, which the Regina company has dubbed Marengo, is a tralkoxydim herbicide, using the same active ingredient and rate as Dow AgroSciences’ product Liquid Achieve.
Viterra said the product is registered for post-emergence control of annual grasses in all varieties of spring wheat, winter wheat, two-and six-row barley and spring and winter rye, protecting against wild and volunteer oats, green and yellow foxtail, barnyardgrass and Persian darnel.
Viterra since February has now launched four Group 1 grass herbicides, also including Foothills, Shadow RTM and WildCat, plus a Group 1 and 4 combination dubbed Cypress.
The exact origin of the new product’s name wasn’t specified, but Viterra’s heritage company, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, previously operated a grain elevator at Marengo, Sask., about 45 km west of Kindersley.
