- High biological effect to control weeds having a strong wax protective layer (for example, Chenopodium album)
- Reliable control of annual dicotyledonous weeds, including green amaranth and some grass weeds
- Weed penetration both through leaves and roots
Mode of action
Ethofumesate impairs mitosis in weed cells. It penetrates plants predominantly via their root systems and then translates through the stalk to their leaves. It inhibits the Hill reaction during photosynthesis. The action is function of soil humidity and organic contents in soil. Adequate soil humidity and low organic content are positive factors.
Until the next wave of weeds, which is dependent on weather conditions in the year of application. The preparation affects weeds present in the plantings during spraying.
Speed of action
The preparation has a systemic effect. Visible signs of herbicide action appear depending on weather conditions on 4th to 8th day after application.
Compatibility with other preparations
The preparation has a good compatibility with most cereal herbicides: Healer, OEC; Censor, EC; Forward, OEC; Mitron, SC; Lornet, SL; Betaren 22, OEC; Betaren Super MD, OEC; Betaren Express AM, EC. In each specific case, the components to be commingled shall be checked for physical and chemical compatibility.
Spectrum of action
The herbicide preparation for beet plantings is intended to control annual bilobate weeds, including amaranth and some species of annual cereal weeds.
|Crop||Harmful object||Consumption rates of preparation, l/ha||
Consumption rates of working liquid, l/ha
||Method, treatment time, and application features. Period of manual (mechanized) work||Safety intervals (treatment frequency)|
|Sugar beet||Annual bilobate (including amaranth species) and some annual cereal weeds||1.0-2.0||100-200||Successive spraying of plantings upon sprouting of 1st, 2nd and 3rd wave weeds (at seed leaf stage for bilobate weeds and at one leaf stage for cereal weeds) from the fork phase to closing of beet rigs.||60(2)|
||Annual bilobate (including amaranth species) and some annual cereal weeds||1.5-2.0||200-300||Spraying of plants in phase 1-4 leaf stage and earlier stages of weed growth||-(1)|
Mix preparation method
Prepare the mix immediately before use. Dose the preparation for a single fill of the sprayer. Then prepare the mix as follows: Fill the sprayer tank to about its half with water, add the required herbicide dose and top up with water until full while continuously stirring using hydraulic agitators. Rinse the empty tank several times with water that is then poured into the sprayer tank. Prepare the herbicide mix and fill the sprayer on dedicated sites that are disinfected afterwards.
Use commercially available ground-based boom sprayers provided with slit-type nozzles for herbicide application.
Hazard class III, moderate hazard.
ACTION, SC (500 g/l) is quite selective and normally does not affect sugar beet plantings when used in accordance with the proposed regulations.
Potential for resistance
Application time for machinery assisted operations – 3 days
Keep the preparation in a room dedicated for pesticide storage. Temperature range is minus 10⁰C to plus 35⁰C. Stir before use
