New Best Practice Application Advice For Residual Herbicides And Benefits That Come From The Inclusion Of Remix As An Application Aid

As we rely more on residual herbicides for effective weed control it has become increasingly important to get the best out of residual herbicides – particularly with difficult grassweeds. Here, we describe how the new best practice application advice for residual herbicides and benefits that come from the inclusion of Remix as an application aid – in both cases from years of trials with our bespoke specialist application equipment.

 

MORE DROPLETS which hit the target - is the key to getting the best out of residual herbicides.

In our trials best results have been achieved by either twin-line or twin cap applications. By spraying with two nozzles at the same time we are able to deliver many more droplets to the target – giving better coverage of the soil which results in better herbicide performance.

Pre-emergence treatments of Liberator 0.6 + Remix were applied to a ‘difficult’ blackgrass population as below:

 

- Single line (VP80-04 & VP110-04 nozzles, alternating forwards and down) - Twin line with Rotating Front Spray Line (VP80-03 & VP110 nozzles, angled forwards and down)

- Twin line with Fixed Front Spray Line (VP80-03 & VP110-03 nozzles, angled forwards and down) - Twin Cap (VP80-03 & Defy 03 nozzles angled forwards and down)

 

In each case the total water volume was the same – but the twin-line and twin-cap applications delivered more (smaller) droplets

Twin Cap – set up ​
