'Hussar' (Aventis) and 'Affinity' (CropCare) in cereals demonstrations locations

To demonstrate a new wheat herbicides Hussar® from Aventis, and Affinity® from CropCare for grass and broadleaf weed control.

Key messages

Hussar® is a group B herbicide, which is active on a range of grasses (Wild Oats, Phalaris, and Rye Grass) and broadleaf weeds in wheat. Hussar® is currently pending registration.

Affinity is a Group G herbicide (as is Goal) used for broadleaf weed control in cereals. Best used in conjunction with MCPA. The control plot yielded the least presumably due to competition from weeds. Affinity showed good crop tolerance.
