Two new cereal herbicides containing new ArylexTM active: ZyparTM and PixxaroTM EC against various Geranium species
In recent years, various Geranium species have increased their significance in many important crops in Germany. The most important reason for this situation is the increased use of no-till farming as well as a smaller selection of herbicides used to control weeds. Dow AgroSciences has recently developed two cereal herbicides containing the new active Arylex™ (halauxifen-methyl), Zypar™ und Pixxaro™ EC. Dow AgroSciences initiated trials in Germany to investigate the potential of both products to control Geranium species to recommend the most effective products to farmers. Trials were carried out in greenhouses and in the field. Both products controlled various Geranium species and controlled Geranium pusillum and G. dissectum particularly well. The most difficult to control of the Geranium species was Geranium molle.
