Application features

• basic requirement for developing high herbicide effect is the quality of the seedbed preparation (large lumps increase the area of absorption, reducing the effectiveness of the product);

• after application, it is necessary to incorporate it into the soil by light or moderate harrows and in case of drought the soil must be pressed;

• use the minimum of a recommended dose on the humus-poor and light-textured soils and maximum of a recommended dose on the loamy, heavy and high-humus soils;

• apply the product in irriguous soil for better results;

• doze rate of the working solution during the ground spraying is 200-300 liters per hectare. It is necessary to cover the whole area while applying the product.

Product’s advantages

• it provides crops with a good start and further development, resulting in the death of the weed competitors even before they are on the surface;

• it reduces the number of mechanical tillage that retains moisture and productive topsoil;

• it doesn’t accumulate in the environment and is rapidly degraded in soil.
