Wheat growers have a new Bayer CropScience herbicide with a new active ingredient. Huskie Complete received approval from EPA for application to cereals, including spring wheat, winter wheat and durum. The new herbicide will control grass weeds including those that are ACC-ase resistant, such as wild oats, barnyardgrass and green and yellow foxtail. Huskie also will handle more than 50 broadleaf weeds, including ALS-resistant biotypes, including common lambsquarters, Russian thistle, and prickly lettuce.
