CRT Catalogue Pull-out Feature : CRT Autumn 2014 - Tech Update
There's always better value at CRT. Crop Protection If plants have been moisture stressed, delay application until after rainfall or irrigation and ensure weeds or suckers have resumed steady growth. Weeds don't have to be obviously wilting to be under dry stress which can limit control by Hammer. Hammer has a rapid rainfast period of only one hour. However, when tank mixed with another herbicide, observe the rainfast period for the other herbicide as well. Ensure that the recommended water volume is applied to give thorough coverage of leaves and stems for optimum control as Hammer is a contact herbicide. Use good quality water, preferably in the pH range of 5 -- 7. Cold water will not affect the performance of Hammer. Target smaller, young weeds which are usually more susceptible than older, larger weeds. Older, hardened leaves are slower to respond to Hammer due to reduced enzyme activity. For more information on Hammer 400 talk to your CRT Local Bloke. ® Hammer is a registered trademark of FMC Corporation. Opus® fungicide Opus® 125 is a broad spectrum contact and systemic fungicide with protectant and curative properties for the control of major foliar diseases. It is effective on stripe and leaf rusts, Septoria nodorum blotch and powdery mildew in wheat and leaf rust, the net form of net blotch, scald and powdery mildew in barley. The fungicide is taken up via the plant stem and foliage and is translocated upwards and outwards to provide protection to new growth. Thorough coverage of the crop is necessary for best results. Opus should be applied when conditions favour disease development, but preferably prior to development of disease in the crop. The power of Clearfield® Clearfield,® a powerful production system available in wheat, canola and barley, is designed to deliver extended weed control, increased yield potential and crop quality. The system uses technology that matches selected seed varieties with BASF's Intervix,® a custom designed Clearfield herbicide. Clearfield should be applied to actively growing grass weeds in 3-leaf to 2-tiller stage and broadleaf weeds in the 2 to 6 leaf stage. Higher rates should be used when weed numbers are high or towards the upper end of the recommended growth stages. A pre-emergent application of a group D herbicide such as Trifluralin or Stomp® is recommended where high populations of ryegrass (ie 200 plants/wqm) or Group B resistant ryegrass exists. Speak to your local CRT agronomist about Opus and Intervix today. ® Opus, Clearfield, Intervix and Stomp are registered Trademarks of BASF.
