Bayer Adds Huskie® FX Herbicide to the Huskie® Brand Family of Herbicides

February 23, 2021

Bayer introduces Huskie® FX Herbicide as the next-generation herbicide with superior* control of broadleaf weeds and built-in resistance management.

(ST. LOUIS, Feb. 24, 2021) – Bayer is excited to announce the launch of the new Huskie® FX Herbicide for cereals to provide broad-spectrum control of broadleaf weeds, with improved efficacy against tough-to-control kochia*, and built-in resistance management.

This new formulation added to the Huskie® family of herbicides combines three modes of action to make one simple solution for weed resistance management for cereal growers. Huskie® FX includes three active ingredients, with the addition of fluroxypyr on top of pyrasulfotole and bromoxynil.

Lindsey Aagesen, U.S. Marketing Segment Manager – SeedGrowth and Cereals, shares, “Huskie® FX provides cereal growers with strong weed resistance management and pride knowing they have done their part to proactively manage resistance. This new crop protection product is a foundation for controlling tough weeds today to combat weed resistance tomorrow, all part of our broad portfolio of crop protection products.”

Recent trial data demonstrated the use of Huskie® FX-enabled enhanced control of broadleaf weeds and excellent control of kochia* in spring wheat compared to other herbicide programs on the market. Huskie® FX is formulated to deliver enhanced control of kochia and provide cereal growers with the superior control over a variety of broadleaf weeds.

“As weed resistance continues to become a growing issue, Huskie® FX has proven itself to be an excellent tankmix partner with grass herbicides to fit the needs of a grower’s operation,” adds Aagesen.

The built-in resistance management of Huskie® FX helps protect the viability of group 4 herbicides (fluroxypyr) while continuing to bring the efficacy growers rely on with Huskie®. Customers can trust that they have made the right decision in their integrated weed management programs by choosing the new, premium herbicide to fight against tough, resistant weeds.

Huskie® FX is included in the Bayer PLUS Rewards program1 – a broad portfolio of high-performance products designed to provide growers with flexibility and rewards on eligible purchases all season long.
