- Compatible with most pesticides, which makes is suitable for integrated protection purposes.
Mechanism of action
The preparation has a systemic effect. The active ingredient penetrates the plant via its aboveground portion, inhibits cell division in sensitive weeds, thus stopping their growth in several hours after treatment.
Controls bilobate weeds throughout the vegetation period (unless 2nd wave of weeds appears).
Speed of action
The herbicide is quickly absorbed by leaves and moves along the entire plant, however complete perishing of weeds is observed in 2 or 3 weeks after treatment. How fast the signs of delayed growth appear depends on weather conditions during treatment (humidity, temperature), species composition of weeds and their growth stage. Young weeds are more sensitive to the herbicide.
Spectrum of action
Annual bilobate weeds, including 2.4-D and MCPA resistant weeds.
Sensitive species: Canadian thistle, cranebill (species), pepper plant (species), charlock, blindweed, day-nettle (species), vetch, wall rocket, tansy mustard, hemp nettle (species), buttercup (species), treacle erysimum, chickweed, copper rose, wild radish, field chamomile, chamomile (species), campion (species), common sunflower, loesel (species), stinkweed, field pansy, sandweed, green amaranth, yellow field sow thistle, pigweed, cockweed, sandwort (species), storksbill, candytuft (species), toadflax (species), stoneseed, hollyhock (species).
Moderately sensitive species: bluebottle, common fumitory, wild pansy, catch weed, common dandelion.
Feebly sensitive species: ragweed, sheepbine, winterweed.
The preparation is compatible with most herbicides: Drotik, CSC; Primadonna, SE; Primadonna Super, CSC; Lintaplant, SC; Ovsugen Super, EC; Ovsugen Express, EC; Lornet, SL; Zinger, WP; Kassius, WSP; Fenizan, SL; Lornet, SL; Sprut Extra, SL. In each specific case, the components to be commingled shall be checked for physical and chemical compatibility.
Selectivity for cereal crops is achieved by means of fast herbicide decomposition in a stable plant.
Potential for resistance
To avoid resistance to sulfonylureas, use herbicides with various mechanisms of action, alternate preparations and use combined herbicides.

Application technique. Mix preparation method
Prepare the mix immediately before use. Dose the herbicide for a single fill of the sprayer. To prepare the stock solution, fill the vessel (bucket, tank) with water to 1/4, add the herbicide dose, stir uniform liquid and top up with water to 3/4. The fill the sprayer tank with water to 1/2, add the prepared stock solution of herbicide, top up with water until full. When a surfactant based herbicide is used, add Satellite, L to the mix, and top up the tank with water until full while continuously stirring the solution with hydraulic agitators. Then rinse several times the vessel where the stock solution was prepared. During spraying, the hydraulic agitator of the sprayer shall be in operation. Use the prepared mix immediately after preparation. After treatment with the herbicide, thoroughly rinse the sprayer tank with water and soda ash.
Prepare the mix and fill the sprayer on dedicated sites that are disinfected afterwards.
Use ground-based beam sprayers Amazone, OPSh-15-01, OPSh-3-24, ON-400, OP-2000-2-01, or similar.
The best result and quickest herbicide action of the preparation are achieved during active growth of young weeds at 2-4 leaves stage.
The preparation does not pose phytotoxic hazard for cereal crops, and quickly metabolizes in wheat and barley that is which these crops are highly tolerant to the preparation.
Recommendations on protection of valuable flora and fauna objects
The preparation is of low hazard to bees – Hazard Class 3, and virtually of no hazard to fish – Hazard Class 4. Basic provisions of the ‘Guidelines for preventing bee poisoning with pesticides’ and following environmental regulations:
