Active Fraction Content Mezotrion, 480 g/kg
Chemical Group Triketones
Preparative Form Suspension Concentrate
WHO Classification III class (Moderate hazard substance).

The preparation prevents resistance to preparations from the sulfonylureas group.
The rapid and prolonging effect that prevents the emergence of the next wave of weeds.
The preparation can be used at different stages of culture and weeds development.
Mesotrione blocks the effect of an important plant enzyme and prevents the formation of carotenoids in weed plants. Without carotenoids, light energy and by-products of photosynthesis destroy chlorophyll and cellular membranes. As a result, there is a rapid discolouration of leaves, followed by necrosis and loss of weeds. Such active ingredient as mesotrione quickly penetrates the plant through the leaves, roots and shoots, and causes the growth of sensitive weeds to stop for 1-2 days after application and complete destruction for 2 weeks.
