Nicosulfuron 40 g/l OD
Selective post-emergence herbicide, used to control annual grass weeds, broad‑leaved weeds and perennials grass weeds such as Sorghum halepense and Agropyron repens in maize.
Composition: 40 g/l Nicosulfuron
Chemical group: Sulfonylurea
Type of formulation: Oil Dispersion (OD)
Mode of action:
Selective post-emergence herbicide, used to control annual grass weeds, broad‑leaved weeds and perennials grass weeds such as Sorghum halepense and Agropyron repens in maize.Nicosulfuron is rapidly absorbed into the weed leaves and is translocated through the xylem and phloem towards the meristematic zone. In this zone, Nicosulfuron inhibits acetolactate synthase (ALS), a key enzyme for branched‑chain aminoacids synthesis, which results in cessation of cell division and plant growth.
SAFETY PERIOD (Pre-harvest interval):
The product must not be mixed with organophosphate insecticides, or to be applied to maize, where the furrows are treated with granule organophosphate insecticides.
Can be applied to maize treated with carbamate insecticides against soil insect pests.
