Why Imidazolinone tolerant barley

  • Safety when there are concerns with plant back following Imidazolinone tolerant wheat and canola
  • Post-emergent control of brome and barley grass
  • Removal of self-sown wheat in barley crops
  • Earlier/dry sowing of barley into wheat stubbles becomes a safer option
