summary of challenges sunflower desiccation and harvest aid
Summary of Challenges Sunflower Desiccation and Harvest Aid

BASF has not seen these challenges in earlier 2010 successful applications nor in prior years of research.

BASF logged alleged concerns on Sharpen Herbicide Performance in Sunflower Desiccation, and worked quickly with growers and applicators to reach resolution.

Based on the trends observed from the challenges reported, some clear Critical Success Factors emerged.

sharpen sunflower desiccation critical success factors
Sharpen Sunflower Desiccation Critical Success Factors
  • Water Volume
    • More is better
    • Label revised from 3 gpa to 5 gpa
  • Adjuvant
    • MSO @ 1 pt/A or MSO based HSOC @ 0.75 pt/A.
    • AMS @ 8.5-17 lb/100 gal or 1.25-2.5 gal 28% UAN/100gal
  • Application Timing
    • Label allows application at physiological maturity
    • If applied prior to PM, it will take longer to desiccate

  • Small Plot Replicated Trials
    • NDSU Fargo, Carrington, and Minot
    • Evaluate adjuvant rates with and without glyphosate tankmix
    • Evaluate application timing
  • Aerial Application Split Field Trials
    • Evaluate various oil adjuvant rates
    • Fifteen locations scattered throughout North Dakota, South Dakota, and NW Minnesota
