XERTON can also have activity on black-grass (Alopecurus myosurides) when included within a programme at 0.6L/ha, and can be a useful tank-mix partner to products specifically targeted at black-grass control when they are applied early post-emergence of the crop.
Suspension concentrate (SC) formulation containing 417g/L of ethofumesate.
Xerton is a selective systemic herbicide, absorbed by the emerging shoots (grasses) and roots (broad-leaved plants), with translocation to the foliage.
Not readily absorbed by leaves after the plant has generated a mature cuticle.
Inhibits the growth of meristems, retards cellular division, and limits formation of waxy cuticle.
Moderate soil persistence – 10 weeks, not readily leached but biologically degraded in the soil.
