Herbicide for controlling weeds in pastures

As a herbicide derived from the Auxin Mimics group (also known as Growth Regulators), Creta® has high efficiency on the control of weeds in pasture areas.

It is recommended for the control of broad-leaf, herbaceous, semi-shrubby and shrubby weeds in areas of forage grass pastures. The product acts directly on the metabolic functions of weeds, including altering cell functions, resulting in:

  • Deformation of lateral and apical buds;
  • Paralysis of growth and thickening of roots;
  • Appearance of “callus” in the nodes along the stem.

Methods of application

Creta® is highly versatile and can be used through land foliar applications in the total area, localized foliar or aerial (agricultural aircraft), according to the recommendations described for each situation. The spray volume may vary depending on the area actually to be treated, the density and size of the weeds, as well as the equipment and application technology used.

Always consult an Agronomist.
