Evaluating Zidua Herbicide for Use in Potato Production



Zidua (pyroxasulfone) is a relatively new herbicide from BASF currently being used in corn, soybeans, and wheat. In the future, BASF would like to expand the Zidua label to include additional crops such as potatoes. In support of this goal, we conducted a field trial in 2014 to evaluate weed control effectiveness and potato crop tolerance to Zidua when used alone and in combination with other herbicides in a potato production system.
