Weeds are among the main factors that cause yield decrease in agriculture.

One of the main allies to minimize these losses are agricultural herbicides. In soybean, for example, the fastest growing pre-emergent herbicide in the adoption area for intelligent weed management is ZethaMaxx®.

ZethaMaxx® stands out for having an unique composition on the market, controlling a wide spectrum of weeds (broad and narrow leaves), which avoids losses due to initial weed competition, in addition to being highly selective to the crops without carryover risk to subsequent crops.

Understand how ZethaMaxx® brings tranquility to the producers of soybean and peanuts

With its exclusive formulation and composition, ZethaMaxx® has two mechanism of action and different modes of action that provide excellent control of broad and narrow leaf weeds, both in the pre-emergence and also in the initial post-emergence, mainly accelerating the action of Crucial in pre-sowing desiccation.
