Active Ingredient: 300g/L MCPB, 20g/L MCPA and 10g/L Flumetsulam


Formulation: Soluble Concentrate


Development of Tribal Gold

Tribal Gold contains a unique co-formulation of MCPA, MCPB and Flumetsulam which was developed specifically for NZ pastoral farmers after Nufarm noticed a common trend in weed species in pasture renewal programmes.

Local trials showed this combination of active ingredients consistently provided the highest level of early broadleaf weed control in new pasture prior to the first grazing.

The key difference with Tribal Gold over other MCPA/MCPB mixed formulations is the broader weed spectrum. By combining Flumetsulam in the mix we are able to control a large number of additional seedling weeds that are not normally controlled by traditional formulations.


How Tribal Gold Works

Tribal Gold contains 300g/L MCPB, 20g/L MCPA and 10g/L Flumetsulam. These active ingredients are absorbed through the foliage and translocated to the growing points where they interfere with cell division and enlargement. Weed vigour declines and subsequent death occurs.


Outstanding Weed Control 

Tribal Gold gives outstanding broadleaf weed control in new pastures. Seedling weeds controlled include: buttercups, black nightshade, chickweed, cleavers, docks, fathen, fleabane, hedge mustard, mayweed, mallow, plantain, redroot (amaranthus), shepherd’s purse, spurrey, storksbill, thistles, twin cress, willow weed and wireweed.


Excellent clover safety

Tribal Gold displays outstanding weed control without killing young clovers. Some temporary clover suppression may occur, but recovery is rapid.
