In early December, BASF announced the launch of Odyssey Ultra herbicide for the 2015 growing season. The herbicide is the newest addition to the company’s pulse portfolio and is registered for use on Clearfield lentils, Clearfield canola, field peas and soybeans. Odyssey Ultra is a multiple mode of action herbicide with flushing weed control on grass and broadleaf weed species.
“Odyssey Ultra is a multiple mode of action herbicide with flushing weed control on grass and broadleaf weed species,” said Danielle Eastman, Western Herbicide Brand Manager at BASF Canada. “It offers control of tough weeds including wild oats and volunteer cereals. Japanese brome grass has been submitted to the Pest Management Regulatory Agency for a label expansion.”
Odyssey Ultra combines the early-season and flushing broadleaf weed control of Odyssey (imazamox, imazethapyr) with the proven, premium grassy weed control of Poast Ultra (sethoxydim). Odyssey Ultra provides control of key grassy weeds with an extended application window.
“When we heard Odyssey Ultra contained Poast Ultra, which we have used in the past with great success, it was a no brainer for us,” said Fred Grieg, a grower from Reston Manitoba. “With the quick results we saw on the grassy weed burndown, we will use Odyssey Ultra again.
