GLYPHOSATE AVAILABLE AS A FLAX HARVEST AID

 

Selected tradenames of glyphosate are approved for preharvest application in flax. Section 24(c) Special Local Needs registration has been approved for use of Roundup UltraMax or Ultra RT (Monsanto), Glyphomax Plus (Dow Agrosciences), and Gly Star Plus (Albaugh). The registrations were granted to control emerged grass and broadleaf weeds including Canada thistle prior to flax harvest. Review glyphosate labels for product rates, adjuvant use, spray carrier volume, etc.

 

Application must be made at least seven days before harvest and when the crop is physiologically mature. A rule-of-thumb to determine when flax is physiologically mature is when at least 75% of the bolls have turned brown. Greater perennial weed control will result if 10 to 14 days are allowed between glyphosate application and harvest. Applicators must read and follow label directions, and have the glyphosate label in their possession during application.
