(Active substances: mesosulfuron-methyl and iodosulfuron-methyl-sodium)
Building on the proven technology of Atlantis WG, Pacifica is our most effective spring herbicide for use in winter wheat. Its more robust formulation means that it treats a broader spectrum of grass-weeds; providing outstanding control of brome.
Pacifica allows a wider range of grass-weeds to be treated and provides useful control of broad-leaved weeds in the spring. It can be used flexibly at one of two rates depending on the target weeds. It provides a solution for tough and complex weed problems and can be used over a wide application window.
To get the best out of Pacifica, we recommend that you use it on small, actively-growing weeds and in a programme following a residual herbicide. It should always be used with an adjuvant such as Bayer’s biopower. It is also important to avoid complicated tank-mixes.
We advise you to always use Pacifica as part of a programme. It should be used in conjunction with an autumn residual such as Liberator.

biopower is our adjuvant for use with Atlantis WG and Pacifica.
Because these products act primarily via uptake by the leaves of susceptible weeds, the use of an adjuvant increases uptake. This increased uptake not only enhances the rainfastness of Atlantis WG and Pacifica, but also increases the reliability of the performance under a wide range of environmental conditions.
Our trials have demonstrated that biopower consistently outperforms other adjuvants in increasing the efficacy of Atlantis WG and Pacifica and in enhancing consistency of performance from season to season. These trials have also shown that the use of some adjuvants can be detrimental to the efficacy of these products.
Use biopower at 1 L/ha in order to maximise the efficacy and rainfastness of Atlantis WG and Pacifica.
ALWAYS add biopower to the spray-tank last. Switch off the induction bowl immediately after adding biopower since this can introduce air into the spray-tank and result in excessive foaming.
