SOYBEANS

The selective soil herbicide designed for protection of the corn/maize, sunflower, and soybean crops against annual dicotyledonous and cereal weeds.

Active Fraction Content Acetochlor, 900 g/L

Chemical Group Chloroacetanilides

Preparative Form Emulsion Concentrate

WHO Classification II class (High-toxic substance)

Advantages of product

The preparation provides a wide range of action against cereal and some dicotyledonous weeds.

Long-term protection effect.

It does not impact on the following crop rotation cultures.

Mechanism of Action

After the herbicide has been entered into the soil, it remains in the upper layer thereof. The active substance of the preparation - acetochlor – effects on sprouting weeds, penetrates into the tissue of strands and roots, actively inhibits the growth and division of cells, and infringes the protein and lipid metabolism therein. Changes in metabolism caused by acetochlor are an irreversible process, resulting in the growth of the sprouts to stop and their death without appearing on the surface of the soil. In compliance with the technology of making the preparation, SAHARA ensures no weeds within 4-8 weeks.

Coverage

Annual cereal weeds:

barnyard grass (Echinochloa crusgalli), yellow-foxtail grass (bristle grass (Setaria)), green foxtail grass (Setaria viridis), crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis), ryegrass/darnel (Lolium) (darnel), barnyard grass (Panicum crussgalli), etc.

Annual dicotyledonous weeds:

amaranth, ragweed, blindweed (Capsella bursa pastoris), white pigweed, thorn apple (Datura stramonium L.), galinsoga, chamomile, buckwheat, black nightshade (Solanum nigrum L.), common purslane (Portulaca oleracea), chickweed satin flower (Stellaria media), common fumitory (Fumaria officinalis), Canadian hemp nettle (Galeopsis), China jute (Abutilon theophrasti), common arache (Atriplex patulum).

Perennial weeds:

Canada thistle (Cirsium arvense) (seeds sprouting), green valley grass (Sorghum halepense) (seeds sprouting).

Preparation Properties

SAHARA decomposes in the soil during one vegetation period and does not affect the following cultures in crop rotation.

Recommendations for Use

Application Features

The quality of soil treatment has an effect on the effectiveness of the preparation. The greatest effect is achieved when the soil before the preparation will be entered is in finely-branched condition with thoroughly chopped plant residues. The preparation is introduced before the emergence of culture sprouts. In arid conditions, the herbicide is applied under harrowing or pre-sowing cultivation to a depth of up to 5 cm. The heavier mechanical composition and higher content of humus, the higher the standard of the preparation consumption.

Compatibility

The preparation is compatible with most preparations. However, in each particular case, before a tank mixture will be prepared it should be tested whether it is compatible or not.

Precautions in Use

When the weather is cold and the soil is extremely moist, the preparation can inhibit sunflower crops. Therefore, in order to avoid the phytotoxicity of the preparation, at such weather conditions, it should be used in a tank mixture with the prometryn-based preparations.
