Pixxaro EC

Herbicide

Pixxaro EC is an innovative herbicide for the control of broad-leaved weeds in winter and spring cereals, based on innovative chemistry. It is the first molecule in over 20 years to be launched in the UK to provide a new level of dependable and flexible weed control from spring applications to all cereals. Pixxaro EC is based on the innovative active ingredient Arylex Active (halauxifen-methyl) developed by Dow AgroSciences and registered in the UK in 2015. The new product also contains fluroxypyr, the tried and trusted active substance in Starane®.

Pixxaro EC is a spring applied wide spectrum broad-leaved weed herbicide, giving reliable control across a range of weather conditions. Pixxaro EC provides robust control on key driver weeds such as cleavers, poppy, fumitory, fat hen, cranesbill and chickweed with greater flexibility on timing.
