It is a non-selective contact herbicide of broad spectrum to be used in citrus, fruit trees and grapes. It is a pre-emergent product with long-term residual effect control of up to 90 days, applied to weeds coming from seeds (annual, biennial, perennial), either monocots or dicots. Its active ingredient Indaziflam, belongs to the Alkylazine chemical group (Fluoro alkyl triazine) and its action mode inhibits cellulose biosynthesis, resulting in a better control of weeds resistant and tolerant to traditional herbicides”.
