A RELIABLE COMBINATION WHICH IS SUITED FOR A WIDE RANGE OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS.
As you begin your 2019 sowing, it’s important to have your dry condition weed control plan in motion. Here’s why our Avadex Xtra and TriflurX are the reliable combination in these dry conditions.
Herbicide properties increase effectiveness in dry conditions:
1. Vapour action – Once incorporated, Avadex Xtra + TriflurX turn into a gaseous vapour filling the pore spaces within soil, this vapour is then absorbed by germinating weeds, inhibiting growth. This action occurs with minimal moisture. If weed seed is sitting in completely dry soil Avadex Xtra + TriflurX will begin to release to vapour right after rain when weeds are germinating. Many other herbicides require sufficient rainfall to move into the weed seed root zone.
2. Absorption in weeds occurs by shoot (inhibits fat synthesis) + root uptake (inhibiting microtubule assembly) = complimentary modes of action.
3. Tightly bound to soil particles – Once incorporated, Avadex Xtra + TriflurX become bound near the soil surface around where key weed seeds lay which allows effective control.
4. Residual activity at recommended rates Trifluralin + Avadex Xtra provides extended control.
