PARAMOUNT MAX delivers a safe and reliable control of an extensive range of broadleaf weed across a flexible window of application. PARAMOUNT MAX should be used in mixtures with other cereal herbicides with a different mode of action such as DUPLOSAN KV or TOMAHAWK 2 to protect against weed resistance and further enhance broad leaf weed spectrum.​ 

 

Paramount Max offers solutions to the twin problems of controlling Groundsel in cereal crops in the spring and herbicide safety in crops of oats and barley.

Controllable Weeds With Paramount Max

Chickweed

Susceptible

Stellaria media, this broadleaf weed is identified by its vibrant green pointed oval leaves are borne in opposite pairs.  For ALS resistant Chickweed, a combination of Paramount Max + Duplosan KV (mecoprop-p) + fluroxypyr is recommended. 

Weed size controlled with Paramount Max: Up to and including flowering.

Groundsel

Susceptible

Groundsel, like other plants on the list compete with cereal crops for space and resources. Groundsel can be identified by its long lobed leaves. 

Shepherd's Purse

Susceptible

Capsella bursa-pastoris, is a fast growing broadleaf weed with toothed green leaves. Known to produce many seeds, with three generations per year.

Weed size controlled with Paramount Max: Up to 100 mm.

Volunteer OSR

Susceptible

Volunteer oilseed rape can be controlled too. Springing up as a result of previous crop rotations and are important to control in order to prevent yield loss and harvest contamination.

Weed size controlled with Paramount Max: Before flower buds visible. 

Poppy

Susceptible

Papaver somniferum, poppies are well known and iconic plants, like most of those listed here, on their own they are not an issue, but it is when they rob crops of space and resources that they become an issue.

Weed size controlled with Paramount Max: Plants up to 6 expanded true leaves.

Mayweed

Susceptible

Tripleurospermum inodorum, a annual bushy broadleaf plant, when flowering it has distinct white petals. It too competes actively with cereals for space and nutrients, robbing yield and grain quality. 

Weed size controlled with Paramount Max: Up to when flower buds visible.

Cleaver

Susceptible

Galium aparine, this broadleaf weed is identifiable by its oval leaves early on and long stem with small curved hairs as it develops. Cleavers are known to be highly competitive with cereal crops and so it is important to control to prevent significant yield loss.  

Weed size controlled with Paramount Max: Plants up to 200 mm.

Charlock

Susceptible

identifiable by its kidney-shaped cotyledons, its first true leaves are broad and rounded. As with other broadleaf weeds it competes with cereal crops and can decrease yield. 

Weed size controlled with Paramount Max: Plant up to 15 cm across/high.

Key Benefits

1. A highly effective combination

Active Ingredients that work well to control broadleaf weeds

A carefully chosen balance of Florasulam and Tribenuron-methyl in an optimised granule formulation containing Florasulam 200 g/kg + Tribenuron-methyl 600 g/kg for ease of use. 

2. Can used in a variety of different weed challenges

Controls an extensive range of weeds including cleavers, groundsel and chickweed.

Proven performance on a wide spectrum of key annual weeds in both winter and spring sown cereals. To access the Paramount Max label and view the list of controlled weeds click here.

3. Wide window of application

A flexibility in dose means you are less limited by the weather when spraying.

Paramount Max is less affected by cold weather than some herbicides and delivers reliable weed control despite challenging spring weather. 

4. Highly compatible as a mixing partner

Forms part of a balanced resitance management program by mixing with phenoxies.

As part of an integrated approach to weed control, Paramount Max can be used in sequence and / or tank mix with a wide range of other herbicides, allowing practical and sustainable weed management.

Use of Paramount Max gives you flexibility in approaching weed control. A mix of Paramount Max + DuplosanKV + Fluroxypyr is ideal for dealing ALS resistant chickweed and fumitory.

Paramount Max with Duplosan KV

For anti-resistance sustainability and enhanced speed of action on several weeds

  • Duplosan KV  (600 g/l mecoprop-p) is one of the main products as a mixture partner for Paramount Max to enhance Cleaver and Chickweed control. 
  • The utility of CMPP-P has been proven during many years and is now even more relevant as an ALS resistance management tool.
  • Duplosan KV is the partner of choice in early spring.

Paramount Max with Tomahawk 2 (fluroxypyr)

Fluroxypyr is a cost effective partner

  • Tomahawk 2  (200 g/l fluroxypyr) is one of the main products as a mixture partner for Paramount Max to enhance Cleaver and Chickweed control at later timings vs. Duplosan KV. 
  • The utility of fluroxypyr has been proven during many years and is now even more relevant as an ALS resistance management tool.
