Post harvest application delivers a cleaner spring seedbed

Applied in the fall, Basis® Blend herbicide provides long-lasting weed control for cleaner, warmer seedbeds the following spring in fields that will be planted to corn. Diminished weed cover allows no-till and reduced-till fields to be ready for earlier planting. Cleaner fields reduce additional passes in the spring, saving farmers time, fuel and money.

Controls tough weeds

Basis Blend controls glyphosate-tolerant and glyphosate-resistant weeds plus other key weeds, including dandelion, poison hemlock, annual bluegrass, henbit and other winter annuals.

Enhanced formulation

Advanced formulation dissolves more completely so it mixes easier, minimizes residue left in the tank and requires less rinsing. Basis Blend is more readily absorbed by weeds, resulting in more consistent control over a wide variety of environmental conditions, including cool fall or early spring conditions.
