Broad leaved weeds


Key Points

•Weeds can harbour infestations of insect pests

•High weed populations compete with the crop for water, nutrients and light

•Broad-leaved weed control programs begin in the autumn

•Follow-up treatments are normally applied by GS30-32 of the crop

•Use the emergence chart on the right to plan applications around your weed profile


Land used for cereal crops can become infested with annual and pereninial weeds. To minimise competition between weeds and crop it is advisable to treat broad-leaved weeds in cereal crops before they compete significantly with the crop. Programs begin in autumn often with additional treatments made in the spring, around GS 30-32.

Control Options

Pixxaro EC and Zypar both contain the new active ingredient ARYLEX™ active. Regardless of weather conditions, Pixxaro and Zypar deliver consistent, robust control of your most competitive broad-leaved weeds.

A key benefit of Spitfire is its robustness of control of major weeds from early autumn to late spring. As the spring progresses even more options become available for broad-leaved weed control in cereals.

Galaxy can all be applied once the crop has reached GS13. Best results are achieved from applications made from late March onwards.

Broad-leaved weeds and grassweeds:

The introduction of pyroxsulam, found in Broadway Star, has created a whole new concept in weed control. In the past, most herbicides have focused on either effectively controlling grassweeds or broad-leaved weeds - our pyroxsulam products control both weed types without comprise - that's 'cross spectrum' weed control.
