Application Advice

Fusilade Max works on contact with the target weed leaf –best results are achieved from applications made to small, actively growing weeds.




Apply when access to the target is still good, before row closure to obtain sufficient coverage.

Do not use ACCase inhibitors as the sole chemical method of grass weed control in successive crops. To manage resistance and maintain performance, incorporate cultural control methods and use different herbicide modes of action across the rotation.
