Active Ingredient: Saflufenacil @ 700g/kg
Sharpen Herbicide is for the control of a range of broadleaf weeds prior to the establishment of crops and forestry plantations, fallows, established citrus, pome and almond orchards, and around commercial, industrial, and agricultural buildings and yards, on established lucerne crops, in rice, harvest-aid application in pulse crops, and late application in cereals.
Sharpen Herbicide is a powerful knockdown herbicide that can be used to replace or reinforce the effectiveness of glyphosate in different use patterns all year round.
Sharpen provides excellent weed control to maximise moisture retention in fallow. Use the fast and robust systemic activity of Sharpen – standalone or tank-mixed – to give each spray an extra cutting edge and quickly knock down young problem broadleaf weeds like fleabane and sowthistle.
Using Sharpen Herbicide provides fast pre-sowing knockdown of broadleaf weeds, including hard-to-kill species like fleabane, sowthistle (milk thistle) and prickly lettuce. Enormous reductions in the amount of seed set by wild radish and 6 other broadleaf weeds in winter cereal crops before harvest.
Sharpen Herbicide provides rapid and thorough desiccation of chickpeas and other pulse crops to streamline harvesting plus excellent fallow establishment and maintenance through fast knockdown of 32 broadleaf weeds. Use Sharpen for efficient ‘winter cleaning’ of established lucerne and the clean-up of broadleaf weeds in established almond, citrus and pome orchards and around farm buildings
Sharpen Herbicide is a fast-acting contact herbicide and aids in the control of weeds through a process of membrane disruption. The foliar uptake of Sharpen Herbicide is rapid and plant desiccation can occur within 4 days of application. Application of Sharpen Herbicide should target small actively growing weeds. Subsequent germinations will not be controlled. Sharpen Herbicide is rapidly absorbed through the foliage of plants. Within a few hours following application, the foliage of susceptible weeds will show signs of desiccation, and in subsequent days necrosis and death of the plant.
