Freestyle™ herbicide is a flexible solution for early-season weed control in any soybean production system. It provides enhanced residual control of grass and broadleaf weeds, including tough weeds like Eastern black nightshade.


Freestyle makes early-season weed control in soybeans simple and effective. It provides enhanced residual control of grass and broadleaf weeds, even many of the most troublesome weeds, including Eastern black nightshade. Freestyle also helps to defend against weed shifts in minimum or no-till systems.

Fits any soybean production system

Glyphosate-tolerant (GT) soybeans

Freestyle helps you time your in-crop glyphosate application for maximum effectiveness. By keeping your crop clean during the pre-emergence to third trifoliate stages, there’s more timing flexibility when making your in-crop glyphosate application. This allows you to manage your in-season workload better while minimizing weed competition, leading to higher yields and less stress for you.

Identity-preserved (IP) soybeans

Freestyle brings added performance, delivering a broader spectrum of weeds controlled, including many annual grasses and key broadleaf weeds such as velvetleaf and Eastern black nightshade.

A long-term approach for weed resistance in GT soybeans

Young soybeans

Glyphosate-resistant weeds are a reality in Eastern Canada.

By contributing a second mode of action to your glyphosate-tolerant soybean production system, Freestyle helps you manage weed resistance in your crop for today – and for the future.

Broad-spectrum and residual season-long weed control

Soybean field

Freestyle delivers broad-spectrum and residual weed control of many hard-to-kill weeds, including velvetleaf and Eastern black nightshade. Tank mixing Freestyle with your choice of glyphosate will help you manage others, such as dandelion, yellow nutsedge, prickly lettuce and annual sow thistle.

  • Weeds
  • Healthy soybean leaves

Use Freestyle with glyphosate in GT soybeans for a wider application window and better residual control. In IP soybeans, Freestyle controls a spectrum of grasses and broadleaf weeds. Tank-mixing with glyphosate will help manage hard-to-kill weeds.

  • Packaging


    • 288 g jug of Classic® + 2.5 L/jug of Imazethapyr SL herbicide
    • New: Classic
      2 x 288 g bottle + 2 x 2.5 L Imazethapyr SL herbicide
  • Mixing Instructions
    1. Fill clean tank about ¼ full with fresh water.
    2. Turn on full agitation.
    3. Add the proper amount of Classic 25 DF herbicide to the water in the spray tank with the agitator running. Maintain full agitation until product is fully dispersed. Continuous agitation is required to keep the product in suspension.
    4. After Classic 25 DF herbicide has been well mixed and is in suspension, add the tank mix partner, if applicable.
    5. Add a recommended amount of spray adjuvant (if required).
    6. Fill the remainder of the spray tank with clean water.

    On repeat tank loads, ensure that the amount of spray solution left in the tank from the previous load is less than 10% of the volume about to be mixed.

  • Tank Mixes

    Glyphosate – burndown or Post-emergence in soybeans

    Boundary® LQD – for IP soybeans

  • Additional Information

    Glyphosate tolerant soybeans – Pre-plant or Pre-emergence (14.4g/ac + 125 ml/ac)

    • Apply up to 14 days before planting
    • Removes early season weed pressure
    • Follow up in-crop with glyphosate

    Glyphosate tolerant soybeans – Early Post-emergence (9.6 g/ac + 83 ml/ac)

    •  Apply up to the 3rd trifoliate stage
    • Adds residual weed control
    • Tank-mix with 0.67-1 L/ac of a 540 g/L glyphosate
    • Post applications of Freestyle may shorten the internodes and stunt soybeans but will not result in yield reduction

    Non-GM soybeans - Early pre-plant to pre-emergence (14.4 g/ac + 125 ml/ac)

    • Tank-mix with a pre-emergence grass herbicide such as Boundary LQD for additional residual and modes of action

    Adjuvants: For control of emerged weeds add a non-ionic surfactant at 2 L/1,000 L of spray solution (0.2% v/v). When tank mixed with a glyphosate herbicide containing a built-in adjuvant system, a non-ionic surfactant is not required.
