WHEAT (FALL AND SPRING SEEDED) - EARLY SEASON APPLICATIONS - BIENNIALS AND PERENNIALS
Banvel + 2,4-D is a selective postemergence herbicide for controlling a wide spectrum of annual, biennial, and perennial broadleaf weeds and brush in grass forages and selected row crops.
MODE OF ACTION
Banvel + 2,4-D contains two active ingredients: dicamba and 2,4-D. Banvel + 2,4-D is readily absorbed by plants through shoot and root uptake, translocates throughout the plant’s system, and accumulates in areas of active growth. Banvel + 2,4-D interferes with the plant’s growth hormones (auxins) resulting in death of many broadleaf weeds.
EARLY SEASON APPLICATIONS
Care should be taken in staging early developing wheat varieties such as TAM 107, Madison, or Wakefield to be certain that the application occurs prior to the jointing stage.
