1. Flucarbazone. Clodinafop-Propargyl OD 13% (6.5+6.5)
This is a foliar spray to control annual grassy weeds in wheat fields. The acting site of flucarbazone is different from Bayer’s Puma® clodinafop-propargyl. There is no cross resistance, and it has a synergistic effect if it is mixed with clodinafop-propargyl, which is also safe for wheat. The formula is of broad-spectrum herbicidal efficacy and has a good effect on the control of almost all vicious grassy weeds except Aegilops tauschii cosson. It is especially effective in controlling bromegrass and can enhance the effect against amur foxtail and Alopecurus japonicus. It can also be used to control shepherd’s purse, vetch and penny cress.
2. Flumioxazin Series
The series includes Flumioxazin 51% WDG, Flumioxazin 50% WP, Flumioxazin 42% SC (480g/L), Flumioxazin.S-metolachlor 52% SE (2:50), and Flumioxazin.glufosinate 66% WP (6:60).
Using a major technical material such as Flumioxazin, S-metolachlor or glufosinate as a base, the company has developed the single material Flumioxazin and formulations mixed with S-metolachlor and glufosinate. The GLP report on technical materials and toxicology information is complete and available.
Flumioxazin offers high activity with low quantity of use. It is an herbicide without residue and is safe for harvested crops. It can be used on crop-rotating plantations. When it is used with glufosinate, weed growth can be prevented and controlled and the cost of repeat applications can be reduced. The same benefits apply when it is used with S-metolachlor, which has a good effect on the control of both monocot and dicot weeds. The product series is supplied in different formulations and formulas to meet the different needs of customers.
