CLEARFIELD® PLUS EURALIS, for a successful weed control without orobanche
Clearfield® Plus is a new generation of Clearfield® Plus herbicide tolerant sunflower. This technology provides farmers with new solutions to control weeds and the orobanche pest while benefiting from economic, time and yield gain. “This new formulation improves the effectiveness of weeding, which allows the sunflower to better develop its potential,” highlights Cédric Delavant, Sunflower Market Development Manager. This new formulation allows better weeding and with greater flexibility. Clearfield® Plus Herbicide deliver a consistently post emergence efficacy against broadleaf weeds, grasses and Orobanche, due to better retention and adhesion of active matters.
The best efficiency of herbicide passage is on the early stages of the weeds. In general, the weeds pressure is visible when sunflower plant has between 4 and 8 leaves. From another side, the presence of the Orobanche cannot be detected immediately on the sunflower because the roots might already be contaminated. The parasite plants start roots invasion when sunflower is more or less developed (approximately on the stage of 6 leaves) and new parasites can continue to develop until sunflower late maturity stages. That is why, for creating optimal condition to maximize the yield, Euralis and BASF propose Clearfield® Plus hybrids OR Master® hybrids. These hybrids are more efficient because they allow to combine genetic resistance and chemical control.
PULSAR Plus® present in the European Union
This technology is based on the effective combination of imazamox-based PULSAR Plus® herbicide from BASF and Euralis varieties that are tolerant to this herbicide. The arrival of this new formula improves the control of weeds (grass and dicotyledonous) and including weeds harmful to health such as ambrosia (allergen) and orobanche which is a parasitic plant.
The dose of PULSAR Plus® is approved between 1.2L and 2.0L of active ingredient applied per hectare depending on the situation of the plot. This new formula allows an improvement of the production performance which allows a better margin for the farmer.
Euro-Lightning® Plus for outside European union (exept Turkey)
This technology is based on the effective combination of Euro-Lightning® herbicide (imazamox and imazapyr) from BASF and Euralis varieties that are tolerant to this herbicide. The arrival of this new formula improves the control of weeds (grass and dicotyledonous) and including weeds harmful to health such as ambrosia (allergen) and orobanche which is a parasitic plant very present in the eastern europe.
The dose of Euro-Lightning® is approved between 1.6L and 2.0L of active ingredient applied per hectare depending on the situation of the plot and the orobanche pressure. The Euralis OR Master® genetics, with its tolerance to the orobanche, offers the opportunity to the farmer to reduce his dose of herbicide while improving the performance of his production. Thus, the farmer has a better margin.

When applying the weather conditions must be optimal. For optimized and professional use of PULSAR Plus® and Euro-Lightning® herbicide, always refer to Euralis’ instructions for use.
