In-crop herbicide use

Published: 18 Jan 2024

The 'In-crop herbicide use' fact sheet covers the application considerations for in-crop herbicide use. It details adjuvent choice, travel speed, nozzle design and the importance of knowing how a herbicide works (it's mode of action).

The mode of action (MOA) of the chemical being applied and the crop situation determine the water volume and droplet size and how a sprayer should be set up.

It is also important to know how a product enters the plant and how it is translocated within the plant to determine where the spray coverage is required and what adjuvants may assist with the uptake of the product into the plant.
