The Cleancrop™ Brassica System is a crop and weed management solution all in one. Cleancrop™ combines the power of a broad spectrum herbicide (Telar™), and 4 new brassica seed cultivars bred to be resistant to the sulfonyurea herbicide Telar™.

How does it work?
Just plant the herbicide resistant Cleancrop™ seeds and then spray Telar® herbicide within 48 hours to control 23 problem weeds taking root, leaving all the goodness in the soil for your crop to thrive on. With reduced competition from weeds, crop yield and your return on investment goes up.

Why use it?
