IMI Tolerant

IMI varieties have resistance to the class of herbicides known as imidazolinone. IMI herbicides provide wide spectrum weed control of a different mode of action from glyphosate or glufosinate which has advantages in herbicide rotation. These varieties are also tolerant to potential residual herbicide that may prevail from previous season’s use of the imidazolinone chemistry.
