Octavian Met is a new option for weed control in winter barley and winter wheat. Available to use at pre-emergence and as a residual top up it provides a good option for black-grass, brome and broad-leaved weed control.
It is a three-way coformulation of metribuzin, flufenacet and diflufenican. The addition of metribuzin to flufenacet provides improved grass weed and broad-leaved weed control compared to Liberator.
The metribuzin component is primarily root acting but also has some activity against shoot which means it is a strong candidate to use for top up applications. The addition of metribuzin provides up to 10% more black-grass control at the full rate compared to straight Liberator.
Octavian Met is a simple, way to apply three effective actives for weed control throughout the autumn.
