Kansas ranks No. 1 in U.S. grain sorghum production with more than 50% of the market. The Kansas Grain Sorghum Commission (KGSC) directs the investment of funds generated by the grain sorghum checkoff to enhance the profitability of the Kansas grain sorghum producer. KGSC continues to work with research groups to find ways to increase sorghum production in Kansas as it is a vital part of the Kansas economy.


One of the most recently funded and completed projects by KGSC was “Managing Difficult Weeds with a Potential New Herbicide: Huskie®.”


Huskie® herbicide is a prepackage mixture of pyrasulfotole and bromoxynil developed by Bayer CropScience and initially registered for broadleaf weed control in wheat. Huskie® will provide sorghum growers another opportunity to control broadleaf weeds. Pyrasulfotole is a herbicide in the HPPD inhibitor family, which will help control ALS-, triazine-, PPO-, and glyphosate- resistant broadleaf weeds.


In Kansas, research by Kansas State University weed scientists has shown that Huskie® controls kochia, Palmer amaranth, redroot pigweed, tumble pigweed, velvetleaf, puncturevine, morningglory, and other broadleaf weeds. A timely application of Huskie® to 2- to 4-inch weeds will provide the most consistent control. Later applications of Huskie® to larger weeds often do not provide adequate weed control. This research was conducted by K-State Weed Management Specialist, Curtis Thompson.


This project funded by KGSC helped to get Huskie® labeled for sorghum in July 2011. Watch for more projects and research results funded by KGSC in the next issue of Sorghum Grower.
