ADAMA Canada Registers BRAZEN™ - the World’s First Alternative Pinoxaden Herbicide

New herbicide delivers choice to Canadian farmers for 2019 growing season.

March 27, 2019 – Winnipeg, MB – Canadian cereal growers will have a new tool at their disposal to combat grassy weeds in 2019. ADAMA announced today it has registered BRAZEN™ - the world’s first alternative pinoxaden herbicide. Pinoxaden is the world’s leading post-emergence grassy weed-herbicide for spring wheat and barley and until today has only been available from one source.

“ADAMA is proud to be delivering a world’s first to Canadian farmers,” said Darren Palendat, Global Product Strategy Manager, Strategic Cereal Herbicides, for ADAMA. “With the addition of BRAZEN™ to our roster of herbicides, we are providing cereal growers with more choice and flexibility to manage their operations.”

BRAZEN™ is powered by the active ingredient pinoxaden, this proven active ingredient delivers grassy weed control in wheat and barley with a wide application window and multiple tank-mix options for onepass weed control. Multiple years of testing of ADAMA’s BRAZEN™ showed outstanding results in field tests across Western Canada.

This group 1 herbicide is safe to use on both spring wheat and barley up to flag leaf on both crops – saving time in spray season. Working quickly on grassy weeds, its broad-spectrum annual grass control includes wild oats, green foxtail, yellow foxtail, Persian darnel, volunteer oats, volunteer canary seed and proso millet.

“BRAZEN™ is further proof of ADAMA’s ongoing commitment to provide farmers with simple, effective solutions,” added Jodi Starodub, Demand Creation Manager. “ADAMA will continue to listen to Canadian growers and deliver world-class crop-protection products that meet the needs of their farms.”
