Post emergence weed control


Good weed control is essential when growing maize. It eliminates competition for light, nutrients and moisture enabling the maize crop to maximise its yield. Using Latro 750WG as part of your post emergence weed control programme allows you to reach your full potential.

How Latro 750WG works


Latro 750WG is rapidly absorbed by foliage and translocated throughout the plant. Grass and broadleaf weeds stop growing immediately, discolouration occurs followed by dieback that spreads slowly throughout the plant.

Application timing


Grass weeds: Apply when there is sufficient leaf area for good uptake but before the grass has formed a thick layer. For best results with summer grass, application should not be later than the 4 leaf stage. The maize crop growth stage best for application is between the 2 and 8 leaf stage when the crop is growing vigorously without moisture stress. Application to maize greater than 500mm in height risks crop injury.
Broadleaf weeds: Use Latro 750WG before weeds have reached the 4 true leaf stage. Weeds larger than 4 true leaf stage may only be suppressed.


Weather conditions


Warm, moist conditions and adequate soil moisture, both before and after application, will improve control. Maize stressed due to weather conditions may show a temporary yellowing or crop stunting. Latro 750WG is rainfast 6 hours after application.

Directions for use


Grass and broadleaf weeds – Use Latro 750WG at 50-110g per hectare (check label for correct rate for specific weeds). Add Bonza® spray adjuvant at 500ml per 100 litres of spray volume. Apply evenly to the weed canopy in 100-300 litres of water per hectare. Use the high water rate where weeds are dense.

Compatibility


Latro 750WG is compatible in tank mixtures with Nu-Trazine™ 900DF and Flowable Atrazine 600. Latro 750WG may be tank mixed with Kamba® 500 (applied to maize less than 30cm tall), Emblem® or Valdo® 800WG to increase broadleaf weed control, but Bonza spray adjuvant should not be used with these mixtures as there is a greater risk of crop injury (which can be minimized by the use of dropper nozzles). Grass weed control with Latro 750WG may be reduced when Bonza is not used.
