Bayer has launched Monolith, for control of black-grass and other grasses in winter wheat crops in spring.
Ben Coombs of Bayer said the herbicide, based on mesosulfuron + propoxycarbazone offers 10 per cent more black-grass control than its product Atlantis. “It offers better and more consistent control. It can be applied from February 1 and the cut off is before growth stage 33. We recommend people apply before T0 in March.”
The product will be sold at a slight premium over Atlantis, added Mr Coombs.
