What is Hamlet and why should I use it instead of Atlantis WG?

Darren Adkins, Bayer black-grass task force member is asked “What is Hamlet and why should I use it instead of Atlantis WG?” Hamlet is a new post emergence treatment available from Bayer this autumn. Its based on the same chemistry as Atlantis (mesosulfuron and iodosulfuron) but also contains DFF and is in a liquid formulation. This means that Hamlet offers between 5 – 10 percent better black-grass control compared to Atlantis.
