Crucial® 698: state-of-the-art glyphosate herbicide

  • Double Salt: due to the Isopropylamine Salt of glyphosate and Potassium Salt of glyphosate in the formula, rain does not affect the performance of this systemic herbicide in combating weeds. Therefore if it rains 01 hour after application of the product, there is no interference in the good performance of the pesticide.
  • Rainfastness: the high incidence of rain does not compromise the high effectiveness of Crucial® 698. This happens because the product is quickly absorbed in the cultures where it is applied.

Soluble Concentrate (SL) Formulation

The agricultural herbicide has a Soluble Concentrate (SL) formula that contains glyphosate salts and other substances. This means it consists of an active component (solute) and a solvent. For this reason, the application of the pesticide can only be made after diluting it in water (in addition to being the universal solvent, glyphosate salts are more soluble in it).

How Crucial® 698 fights weeds

This glyphosate herbicide protects crops by blocking the weed EPSP enzymes. This prevents the synthesis of certain vital amino acids, resulting in the target’s extermination, approximately 21 days after the application of the product.
