The 1998 issue of Crop Protection Reference [C&P Press, New York] lists several
herbicides for Canola/Rapeseed, including Assure II, Poast, Treflan HFP, Treflan TR-10,
Tri-4 HF, Trifluralin 4EC and Trifluralin HF. Farmers do indeed have options and do not
have to rely on Roundup resistance technology if they chose not too.
