BioBoost Liquid Canola Compatibility Expanded

Posted: Apr 24, 2015

WINNIPEG, MB - Western Canadian farmers have additional tank mix options with BioBoost® Liquid this spring. Already approved as a tank mix with glyphosate, the label has been expanded to include herbicide tank mixes with Liberty®, Ares® and Centurion®
 

BioBoost Liquid on canola is proven to enhance canola yields by 5% (2 bu/acre) on average and the expansion of the approved tank mix herbicides will make it easier for more farmers to incorporate BioBoost Liquid into to their operations. “We know Western Canadian farmers are always looking for ways to maximize their yield and profitability which are also simple and easy to incorporate into their operations,” says Ken Bartsch, Director of Marketing at BrettYoung, “and BioBoost Liquid has done that for Genuity® Roundup Ready® canola growers. The tank mix label expansion brings that same level of convenience to Liberty® and Clearfield® canola growers.”
