SAMUM 150 SL

A universal desiccant of contact action to dry sunflower.

Active ingredient:

diquat dibromide, 150 g/l

Formulation:

soluble concentrate

Packing:

1 L, 5 L, 10 L, 20 L

Mode of action:

the product penetrats to the plants through the leaves, with partial movement at the xylem. The active substance diquat dibromide disrupts the process of photosynthesis in plants. They form strong oxides that damage cell membranes and cytoplasm, leading to dehydration of cells and complete drying of plants. Acts immediately after application of the product, visually the desiccation effect is visible in 5-7 days, depending on temperature and phase of culture development.

Field of usage


Crop

Dose rate,
l/ha

Terms of application

Sunflower

2.0–3.0

Spraying of crops in the early phase of the browning of baskets (sunflower seed moisture is not more than 30-35%) ground/air

Soybean

Spraying of crops in the phase of the onset of browning of lower level beans with seed moisture not more than 35–40%

Compatibility

Samum 150 SL  is compatible with urea or ammonium nitrate. It is recommended use a mixture of SAM Wopro Wet or SAM Maxium and nitrogen fertilizers to improve the action. Tank mixtures with other pesticides are not recommended because of mismatching of product use.

Application features

• the product is applied by spraying sunflowers in a phase of browning baskets; early treatment can reduce the harvest;

• it is necessary to cover the whole area and spray the plants heavily while applying the product;

• treatment is recommended to carry out in the evening or during the day provided the weather is cloudy;

Product’s advantages

• produces extremely rapid product effect and convincing result;

• it is quickly absorbed by plants and provides rapid and equal ripening; as a result it saves costs in final drying of seeds;

• the active ingredient of contact action degrades quickly in the plant, so you can use the product on seed plots and edible crops;

• dries a weed (except crops) which makes harvesting easier;

• gives possibility to obtain seeds with low humidity and doesn’t change the fatty acid composition;

• stops the development and spread of diseases such as white and gray mold of sunflower, and others;

• preserves machinery and equipment: there is an element that prevents metal corrosion.

Optimal weather conditions for application

Preparation of the tank mixture

Weather conditions during the period of application

from + 12°С to + 22°С

at ground application – 200-400 l/ha, at aviation – 50 l/ha

Application should be done out in the evening or during the day in cloudy weather, because in sunny and hot weather conditions desiccation is very fast, but less efficient. Application in the morning is not recommended. Application should be done at the wind speed of not more than 3-4 m/s and there should no raine.
