A Section 18 emergency exemption has been granted for the use of Ultra Blazer herbicide for sugarbeets in eastern North Dakota. With the discontinuance of Betamix, Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said there are no other registered postemergence products available to control glyphosate resistant waterhemp. This exemption allows Ultra Blazer to be used on beets in Barnes, Cass, Cavalier, Grand Forks, Pembina, Ransom, Sargent, Steele, Traill and Walsh counties.
