MB Agriculture and Resource Development is working with FMC to move supplies of Muster Toss-N-Go to Manitoba
Muster Toss-N-Go broadleaf herbicide is the only other registered product for broadleaf weed control in conventional sunflowers. Muster Toss-N-Go, like Assert/Avert is a Group 2 herbicide. It is registered for control of flixweed, hemp-nettle, smartweed (Lady’s thumb), stinkweed, and suppression of redroot pigweed. It will not have an effect on volunteer canola.
IF growers are interested in sourcing the product, growers should contact their local retailer to request product and quantity in order for product to be redistributed accordingly.
NSAC is working with our seed suppliers to determine next steps for 2021 to ensure that growers will have herbicide options for the available commercial hybrids for sale
NSAC will continue to work with FMC and monitor the situation regarding the future of Assert.
