BASF are proud to introduce Butisan® our first new herbicide since returning to the Australian agricultural market in 2014. 

Butisan will bring the benefits of superior pre-emergent grass control to your canola production systems. Butisan is currently under evaluation by the APVMA for registration prior to the 2017 winter cropping season

  • A new group K herbicide active suitable for use in Canola
  • Proposed registration is for use immediately before sowing (IBS) with knife point tynes
  • Proposed registration for control of annual ryegrass, wild oats and wireweed
  • Suitable for use in all canola production systems; Triazine Tolerant, Roundup Ready, Clearfield® and conventional varieties
  • Butisan is activated in low moisture conditions, and moves back into the furrow providing superior in-furrow weed control compared to commercial standards
