Herbicide of systemic action for the destruction of annual dicotyledonous and some of the cereal weeds in the crops of sugar, fodder and table/red beets.
Active Fraction Content Fenmedipham, 91 g/L + Desmedipham, 71 g/L + Ethofumezate, 112 g/L
Chemical Group Phenyl Carbamate, Benzofuran
Preparative Form Emulsion Concentrate
WHO Classification III class (the low-toxicity substance)
The preparation effectively destroys practically all types of annual dicotyledonous weeds, including hard controlled ones, and some cereals.
The preparation has a combined mechanism of action on weeds - through a leaf apparatus and soil.
The first signs of action are manifested through 2-7 days.
The preparation is compatible with the most
The preparation allows handling the up to closing in row spacing.
High selectivity is inherent to the preparation.
Well-chosen active ingredients of such herbicide as BETAGARD lead to destructive and irrespective processes in the weed plants: disturbance of photosynthesis, lipid synthesis, protein exchange, growth retardation, and division of cells, preventing the formation of wax plaque. BETAGARD preparation has a combined mechanism of action on weeds - through a leaf apparatus and soil. Fenmedipham and desmedipham are mobile photosynthesis inhibitors - after penetration into leaves they are concentrated in chloroplasts and cause blocking of the photosynthesis apparatus. Ethofumezate (a seedling inhibitor) is absorbed by various parts of plants - dicotyledons absorb a substance by their roots, penetrates in a monocotyledon through coleoptile during germination. Visual signs of the preparation’s action, such as: clarifying the colour of the leaves and, in the future, chlorosis, appear in 2-7 days after treatment with a herbicide. Complete destruction of weeds occurs in 2-3 weeks.

One of the active substances of the preparation - etofumezate - is absorbed by young weeds when they come in contact with an aqueous solution of ethofumezate in the soil. Therefore, the high humidity of the soil contributes to increasing the efficiency of etofumezate, and drought and high content in the soil of organic matter, on the contrary, reduce it.
