Cirray herbicide has been registered for use in Western Canada on spring wheat and barley, the Crop Science division of Bayer says in a news release on Nov. 29. Cirray provides control of wild oats and green and yellow foxtail, while also controlling barnyard grass and Persian darnel.
“Cirray combines the trusted power of Group 1 pinoxaden with the addition of fenoxaprop to offer broad-spectrum control of tough grass weeds,” Mark Alberts, grower and channel marketing manager for cereals at Bayer, says in the release. “It provides farmers improved control of key grass weeds over existing go-to solutions like Puma Advance, while supporting multiple broadleaf tank mix partners and a wide window of application.”
The release notes Bayer is the first to introduce fenoxaprop alongside pinoxaden in cereals. Cirray can be tank mixed with a wide range of cereal broadleaf herbicides such as Infinity FX, Buctril M and Stellar herbicide. It enables farmers to apply as early as the one leaf stage, and up to six leaves on the main stem plus three tillers.
“Bayer is committed to delivering unparalleled performance and continued development of tailored solutions for Canadian cereal farmers. The addition of Cirray to our robust cereal herbicide portfolio provides farmers with another outstanding tool in the fight against wild oats,” Alberts says.
The release says Cirray will be available in a 20 acre jug and 320 acre drum for the 2022 growing season.
