Tackle emerged black-grass populations when they’re most susceptible

When it comes to black-grass, every percent of control counts. When each black-grass head produces on average 100 seeds, smart choices can make a big difference to seed return.

Bayer’s new post-emergence herbicide, Monolith, can provide 10% uplift in black-grass control in the spring compared to Atlantis WG during the spring and is one small change to boost your black-grass control programme.

Visit our Monolith page to discover how you can improve your black-grass control this spring.

Introducing Monolith

Monolith is a new post-emergence grass-weed herbicides from Bayer. It combines mesosulfuron - the grass-weed active ingredient from Atlantis with propoxycarbazone to create a new standard for post-emergence black-grass control for use in the spring.

The additional 10% uplift in black-grass control that Monolith can provide over Atlantis WG will help reduce the number of seeds returning to the seed-bank helping you keep on top of your black-grass population.
