“Getting the right result, the first time, is extremely important says Jason Marriott, Territory Manager for West Waikato and King Country … especially considering pasture is our biggest crop, you want to set it up to succeed from the start he says.

I recommend CRUCIAL because paddocks sprayed can be grazed, cultivated or drilled just one day after application for annual weeds, and three days for perennial weeds.

The security of knowing you can achieve 15 minute rain fastness with CRUCIAL mixed with Pulse® Penetrant is a big plus, when combined they offer quick die-down and penetration to the plants’ roots. “It’s easy to use, and there are no problems with compatibility with other Nufarm products.” (refer to NUFARM COMPANION HERBICIDE CHART)

The extra time and confidence is what gives a lot of our customers the confidence to go with CRUCIAL over generic glyphosates, especially in trying conditions.

Fast, reliable weed control is money well spent and sets up your new grass paddocks to last for years to come.

Jason recommends three key things to maximize control with CRUCIAL;

  • Use the correct rate of CRUCIAL
  • Ensure there is enough actively growing green leaf at spray-out
  • Add Pulse® Penetrant

CRUCIAL– is a high strength formulation, with 600g/litre of glyphosate, which means you can transport less chemical, apply less per hectare and cover more area than if using a lower strength product.

For more information, look into our CRUCIAL Booklet.
