Herbicides

With the cost of labour rising everyday and its availability also on the decline, herbicides are becoming a cost-effective way to control unwanted weeds in the fields. Herbicides are basically classified on the basis of their selectivity. We have both selective and non selective herbicides in our portfolio.

Daroga
Product available in: 500 ml, 1 litre

Product Description:

  • Daroga is based on imazethapyr 10% SL.
  • Daroga is an herbicide which belongs to the imidazolinone group.
  • It should be applied as early post-emergence herbicide for the control of selective broad leaved and grassy weeds in soybean and groundnut.
  • It has both contact and residual activity. An early application of weed block shall free the crop from competing weeds (2-3 leaf stage).
  • Daroga controls weeds by reducing the levels of three branched-chain aliphatic amino acids, isoleucine, leucine and valine, through the inhibition of acetohydroxyacid synthase, an enzyme common to the biosynthetic pathway for these amino acids.
  • Daroga is a systemic herbicide, absorbed by the roots and foliage, with translocation in the xylem and phloem and accumulation in the meristematic regions.

Recommended Use:

Herbicide name and approved crops Weed species Dosage per hectare Dilution in water (litre) Waiting period / PHI between last application and harvest (days)
a.i. (gm/kg) Formulation in (gm/ ml/ kg/ litre)
Soybean Cyperus difformis, echinochloa colonum, echinochloa crusgalli, euphorbia hirta, croton sparsiflorus, digera arvensis, commelina benghalensis 100 gm 1.0 litre 500-600 litre 75
Groundnut Cyperus difformis, commelina benghalensis, trianthema portulacastrum, eragrostis pilosa 100-150 gm 1.0-1.5 litre 500-700 litre 90

Headmaster
Product available in: 13.5 gm

Product Description:

  • Headmaster based on sulfosulfuron 75% WG.
  • Headmaster is a systemic, selective post-emergent herbicide of sulfonylurea group.
  • Headmaster effectively controls the narrow leaf weeds like phalaris minor (mandusi/guli danda) and broadleaf weeds like chenopodium (bathu), malilotus (sainji).
  • Headmaster inhibits the synthesis of amino acids and stops the metabolic process, with the result weeds dry up and ultimately dies.

Recommended Use:

Dissolve the total quantity of headmaster (13.5 g kept in a pouch) in 8 litres of water. Add to it the total quantity (500 g) of surfactant kept in other packet and mix them well. Use 1 litre of this stock solution per pump (15 litre) and spray on the crop. For better results use at least 8 pumps per acre and use only flat fan or flood jet nozzle.

Herbicide name and approved crops Weed species Dosage per hectare Dilution in water (litre) Waiting period / PHI between last application and harvest (days)
a.i. (gm/kg) Formulation in (gm/ ml/ kg/ litre)
Wheat Phalaris minor, chenopodium species, melilotus alba 25 gm 33.3 gm 200-250 + Cationic surfactant 1250 ml per hectare 110

Rota
Product available in: 100 ml, 250 ml

Product Description:

  • Rota is based on oxyfluorfen 23.5% EC.
  • Rota is a selective pre and post emergence herbicide used to control of more than 60 toughest annual broadleaf and grassy weeds in vegetables, fruit, cotton, ornamentals, etc.
  • Excellent control of both broadleaf and grassy weeds.
  • It has a residual activity and controls important weeds in crops like rice, tea, potato, onion, groundnut and mentha.

Supra 71
Product available in: 100 gm

Product Description:

  • Supra 71 is ammonium salt of glyphosate 71% SG.
  • Supra 71  is a non-selective, systemic herbicide of organophosphorus group, which inhibits the EPPS synthesis in weed plant. Due to its non-selective action it kills all types of weeds.
  • Supra 71 is absorbed by the weed plants very rapidly and kills the plant from the root within 7 to 12 days after its application.
  • Supra 71 apart from annual and perennial weeds also kills the aquatic weeds efficiently.
  • Supra 71 kills all types of weeds if sprayed in open fields, bunds and water channels.
  • Supra 71 does not affect the germination of ensuing crops and any crop can be grown after its application.
