BASF Crop Protection announced that Facet L herbicide, a high performing liquid formulation of quinclorac, is now available to provide rice growers with an improved tool to fight weeds.

Facet L provides excellent control of many yield-robbing weeds found in rice, including barnyardgrass, morningglory species, hemp sesbania and crabgrass. It also offers improved post-emergence weed control compared to Facet 75 DF.

Facet L provides excellent handling characteristics, easy mixing and broad tank-mix compatibility, and has a wide application window, approved for use from preplant up to heading.

"Facet L herbicide is an excellent resistance management tool and can be used with the Clearfield Production System for rice," said Nocha Van Thielen, BASF Rice Marketing Manager. "This liquid formulation will allow rice growers to have more efficient and consistent control of barnyardgrass and other weeds that plague rice fields."

Application rates for Facet L herbicide are 21 to 42 oz/A with a maximum of 42 oz/A per season. For more information about Facet L contact your local BASF technical representative or business representative.
