Glufosinate is a broad-spectrum, non-selective contact herbicide that is used to control a wide range of weeds after the crop emerges or for total vegetation control.
Glufosinate is a natural compound isolated from two species of Streptomyces fungi. It inhibits the activity of an enzyme, glutamine synthase (GS), which is necessary for the production of glutamine and for ammonia detoxification.
UPL Glufosinate can be very efficiently used as pre-sowing burn down in various field crops with no worry of side-effects on subsequent crop. Glufosinate can be used very efficiently in minimum till or no-till cropping system.
UPL Glufosinate can be used very safely in vines and orchards where the vines and trees have stems which are completely lignified. Caution is advised during usage in young trees and vines so as to minimize the drift as well as direct exposure on the crop.
Over the top treatment with UPL Glufosinate can be used only in crops genetically modified for in-built resistance to Glufosinate.
Glufosinate can be tank mixed very well with various residual herbicides.
For example: UPI Tricor
1. Knock down combined with Residual control
2. Long Residual control for 55 to 60 days for both grasses and broadleaf weeds.
