Multi-mode of action

With three proven active ingredients, Commenza delivers overlapping effective modes of action on key weeds such as Eastern black nightshade.

Convenience and confidence

Convenient 20 acre co-pack is easy to handle and measure. And a complete herbicide program from one manufacturer provides you confidence and assurance

Technical Specifications

  • Application Method

    Apply Commenza™ herbicide in conventional, conservation tillage or no-till soybean production systems. Commenza™ is not registered for aerial application.

  • Rates

    One case treats 20 acres

  • Packaging

    Commenza herbicide is packaged in a 20 acre case. Each case contains 10.5 L S-Metolachlor 960 herbicide + 4.54 kg TriCor 75 DF + 715 gram bottle of Broadstrike RC™ herbicide.

  • Crop Rotation

    • 4 months: winter wheat

    • 10 months: spring wheat, spring barley, oats, soybeans, common beans (dry,

    snap), lima beans, processing peas, field corn and seed corn

    Rotational crop restrictions: When tank mixing with other herbicides, follow the

    most restrictive crop rotation guidelines on the label of each product used.

    Rotational crops, except field corn and soybeans, may sustain herbicide injury

    if dry conditions, not favourable to herbicide breakdown, persist following

    application of Commenza.

    Following an application of Commenza in a dry year, the risk of injury to rotational

    crops may increase in light-textured soils containing less than 2% organic matter

    due to a higher bioavailability of herbicide residues for plant uptake.

    A field bioassay should be conducted before planting other crops not listed above.

    A successful bioassay means growing test strips of the crop(s) to maturity intended for production the following year.

  • Additional Information

    The pre-harvest interval for Commenza is 90 days.
