Basis® Blend herbicide features outstanding post harvest burndown plus residual weed control in an enhanced dry-blended formulation.
Applied in the fall, Basis® Blend herbicide provides long-lasting weed control for cleaner, warmer seedbeds the following spring in fields that will be planted to corn. Diminished weed cover allows no-till and reduced-till fields to be ready for earlier planting. Cleaner fields reduce additional passes in the spring, saving farmers time, fuel and money.
Basis Blend controls glyphosate-tolerant and glyphosate-resistant weeds plus other key weeds, including dandelion, poison hemlock, annual bluegrass, henbit and other winter annuals.
Advanced formulation dissolves more completely so it mixes easier, minimizes residue left in the tank and requires less rinsing. Basis Blend is more readily absorbed by weeds, resulting in more consistent control over a wide variety of environmental conditions, including cool fall or early spring conditions.

Don Lamb, a soybean farmer near Lebanon, Indiana, saw firsthand the value of a fall burndown herbicide application when one portion of a field missed the application and significant weed populations emerged. Lamb says the untreated marestail likely reduced yield in that portion of the field by 5 bushels per acre. He recommends fall burndown applications to manage difficult weed populations, including resistant weeds. Better weed control helps crops deliver on their yield potential and reduces the weed seed bank for the following season. Depending on crop rotation plans and geography, burndown herbicide options include Trivence®, Basis® Blend, Canopy® EX and Elevore™ herbicide Always read and follow all label directions and precautions for use.
