3 ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Chloridazon 650g/kg as a powder.
4 CHEMICAL GROUP: C. Herbicide. Pyridazinone.
5 RELATED HERBICIDES:
6 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
A selective, residual, root absorbed, herbicide that control weeds as they germinate.
7 APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:
Apply on the day of sowing or soon after, before the crop and weeds emerge. It requires moist soil. If the soil is dry then irrigation or rain must follow within 10 days of application. Irrigation should not exceed 35 mm/week. It is often applied as a 10-20 cm band application and mechanical weed control used on the inter row areas.
