Totril selective post-emergence contact herbicide provides valuable broad-leaved weed control in allium crops - onions, leeks, shallots and garlic. Note: Totril is no longer available and growers must use existing stocks by the end of August 2016.
Active substances: ioxynil as the octanoate ester.
Getting the best from Totril
Weeds may be sprayed post-emergence from cotyledon stage (flexible-dose programme) up to six true leaves (full dose). For best results the largest weeds should not be beyond the fully expanded cotyledon stage at spraying.
Totril may also be applied as a flexible dose programme depending upon crop and weed growth stage. This is particularly appropriate where climatic or cultural conditions result in ‘flushes’ of weeds, or when there is early weed emergence before the crop is fully hardened. The application rate should be adjusted to take into account crop safety and weed susceptibility.
Important things to remember
- Totril should NOT to be applied by hand-held equipment.
- Avoid drift onto neighbouring crops. Susceptible crops are beans, brassicas (including oilseed rape), carrots, legumes, lettuce, tomatoes and other horticultural crops
