S-METOLACHLOR 960EC is a selective herbicide that provides excellent control of many important annual grasses and some broadleaf weeds in cereal crops, canola, newly sown pastures and the summer crops of maize, sweet corn and sorghum.
How does S-Metolachlor work? The new shoots (coleoptile) of germinating weeds absorb S-Metolachlor 960 during emergence. Once absorbed, the active constituent, S-metolachlor, controls weeds by producing a severe growth inhibition of seedling-shoot and root tissue soon after germination. Its effectiveness depends on the occurrence of rainfall or irrigation to move it down into the top 3 to 4 cm of soil where it must be present in a moist soil at the time of weed germination.
Best results – better results are usually observed where incorporation by rainfall, irrigation or mechanical means occurs within 10 days of application.
Residual Control? Under optimal conditions, S-Metolachlor 960 provides residual control of weeds for up to 8 weeks which can ensure optimum crop establishment and development.
