Rotam UK is set to release its first residual herbicide product for pre- and post-crop emergence use against a range of grass and broad-leaved weeds in winter wheat and barley.

Available in 5L containers from 1 September, Golding® is a herbicide product containing a familiar ratio of actives – 400 g/l flufenacet and 100 g/l diflufenican – in a suspension concentrate formulation.

Golding® is very effective against annual meadow grass, common chickweed, common field-speedwell, field forget-me-not, field pansy, groundsel, mayweeds, and red dead-nettle. It can also be used in the treatment of black grass, up to and including GS 13 but before GS 21 (three leaves and before tillering has commenced).

“Golding® offers a cost-effective alternative to current pre and post-em herbicides,” said Rotam UK’s Customer Support Manager Dilwyn Harris.

“The product has been manufactured to Rotam’s exacting standards and specifications, and, like all of our herbicide products, can be relied upon to offer excellent results.”

To get more information regarding Golding® and how to order, contact Dilwyn Harris on 07795 026056 or email [email protected].
