WHO Classification III class (the low-toxicity substance)

Advantages of product

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.

Mechanism of Action

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.

Coverage

Most sensitive weeds:

ragweed, common nipplewort (Lampsana communis), veronica (species), common bugloss (Anchusa officinalis), small-flower galinsoga (Galinsoga parviflora), buckwheat, field mustard (Sinapis arvensis, Brassica arvensis), white deadly, blindweed (Capsella bursa pastoris), thorn apple (Datura stramonium L.), dawny hemp nettle (Galeopsis tetrahit), common groundsel (Senecio vulgaris), chickweed satin flower (common chickweed) (Stellaria media), field daisy (Leucanthemum vulgare), annual nettle (Urtica urens), common Russian thistle (Salsola ruthenica), red chickweed (Anagallis arvensis), common arache (Atriplex patulum), red/field/corn poppy (Papaver rhoeas), field scorpion grass (Myosotis arvensis), black nightshade (Solanum nigrum L.), catchweed bedstraw (Galium aparine), common purslane (Portulaca oleracea), annual snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis L.), wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum), common fumitory (Fumaria officinalis), field pennycress (Thlaspi arvense), common spurrey (Spergula vulgaris), field violet (Viola arvensis), pigweed (Chenopodium album) and amaranth (various species of both).

Middle-sensitive weeds:

China jute (Abutilon theophrasti), fool's parsley, common chamomile, dog’s field chamomile, rape and sunflower (dead beans of both).

Low--sensitive weeds:

barnyard grass (Echinochloa crusgalli), black foxtail (Alopecurus myosuroides), loose silky bent (Apera spica-venti), bentgrass (Agrostis), green foxtail grass (Setaria viridis), common couch grass (Agropyron repens), hairy crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis), green valley grass (Sorghum halepense), scutch grass (Agropyron repens), Aleppo grass (Sorghum halepense).

Preparation Properties

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.

Recommendations for Use

Application Features

Beet areas should be treated with the preparation at intervals of 7-14 days when the first, second and third wave of weeds appear. The effectiveness of the application depends on compliance with the guidelines for the use of the preparation in relation to the phase of development of weeds. If processing will be too late (overgrown weeds have already appeared), there no effect may be. The maximum effect is achieved when the crop areas will be treated three times (the standard rate of use should be 1 L/ha) for the phase of development of weeds - cotyledons. Double treatment at the standard rate of use of 1.5 L/ ha should be carried out when weeds reach the phase of their development of the appearance of 2-4 actual leaves. A single application of the herbicide (the standard rate of 3 L/ha) is applicable at early stages of the development of weeds when at least 4 pairs of real beet leaves appear and they will develop under the optimum conditions.

Spray Material Consumption Standards

200 – 300 L/ha, it should be borne in mind that the concentration of BETAGARD spray material should not be less than 0.4%, that is, not less than 0.4 litres of the preparation per 100 litres of water.

Compatibility

To expand the spectrum of herbicidal activity, it is expedient to use the preparation in tank mixes along with herbicides on the basis of such active substances as clopyralid, lenacil, chlorosadone, triflusulfuronmethyl and graminacids. However, in each case, it is advisable to test additionally whether it is compatible or not.

Precautions in Use

It is not recommended to spray the beets when they are moist due to precipitations or dews when the plants are in a stressful state (weakened by cultivation, heat, frosts, diseases or pests) and less than 6 hours before precipitation. In order to avoid the risk of burning beet plants, it should be avoided to apply the preparation until two real culture leaves appear. Optimum conditions for the application of herbicide BETAGARD are at the temperature from + 10°C to + 25°C and no strong sunlight exposure
