Benefits of Basagran

  • A contact herbicide with only localized translocation to exposed parts of the plants (i.e. leaves and their cells), therefore thorough coverage is critical.
  • It interferes with photosynthesis of susceptible plants interrupting the use of carbon dioxide in the plant and therefore prohibiting the production of carbohydrates.
  • The weed ultimately starves to death due to carbohydrate depletion.
  • Safe on all field pea and dry bean crops.

Application Tips

  • Basagran has very little residual activity, if any at all. It breaks down rapidly and therefore will not affect subsequent crops.
  • Basagran can stay in the spray tank overnight however it must be mixed thoroughly before heading into the field the next day.
  • Your spray timing is determined by the stage of the primary target weed.
  • Rainfall within 6 to 8 hours of application may reduce effectiveness.
  • For optimal results, use 8004 spray nozzles at 40 psi, with a minimum of 20 gallons per acre of spray solution.

Lima, dry, snap beans (including white, kidney, black, pinto): 1 - 3 trifoliate leaves
Faba beans: Soon after 3-leaf stage

Canada thistle: Up to 8 inches (20 cm)
Wild mustard: Up to 10 inches (25 cm)

Mixing Instructions

  1. Fill clean spray tank half full with clean water. Start agitation system.
  2. If required, add correct amount of nitrogen source. Do not add nitrogen source when tank mixing Basagran with Pinnacle, Reflex or 2, 4-D Amine or Ester and Assist or XA oil concentrate.
  3. If required, add the correct amount of Pinnacle, Reflex or 2, 4-D Amine or 2,4-D Ester. Continuous agitation is required to keep Pinnacle, Reflex or 2, 4-D amine or ester in suspension. On repeat tank loads, prepare Pinnacle/water slurry in a separate container with clean water before adding to spray tank.
  4. Add correct amount of Basagran and agitate 2 - 3 minutes
  5. Add correct amount of Assist or XA oil concentrate or Citowett Plus and agitate 2 - 3 minutes. When tank mixing Basagran with Pinnacle, Reflex or 2, 4-D amine or ester, only Assist or XA oil concentrate may be used.
  6. Add remainder of water, agitate and spray.

Spraying Instructions

  1. Minimum spray volume is 100 L/ha. Use larger water volumes (up to 400 L/ha) for weeds at the upper limit of their recommended stage of treatment.
  2. Minimum spray pressure is 275 kPa. Use higher pressure (up to 425 kPa) for weeds at the upper limit of their recommended stage for treatment.
  3. Use 1 litre of Assist or XA oil concentrate per 100 litres of water with a maximum application rate of 2L/ha. Under hot, humid conditions, restrict additive rate to 1 L/ha. Alternatively Citowett Plus may be used on peas only at a rate of 2.5 L per 100 L of spray solution.
