Arable and vegetable growers have even more flexibility to control broad-leaf weeds, following changes to label recommendations on Clomazone-based herbicide Mohawk CS. CPM reports.

Already registered for use in potatoes and oilseed rape, broad-leaf herbicide Mohawk CS – from Cambridgeshire firm, Sipcam – can now be used on peas, beans and carrots, increasing flexibility for growers and making it a well-rounded tool in the armoury for growers.

“Mohawk CS is a high-quality capsule suspension formulation making it easy and effective to use alone or in an appropriate tank mix,” explains the firm’s James Ward. “Now that it can be used on more crops it increases the options for efficient herbicide control across the farm.”

Whole crop treatment

What’s more, following the submission of additional data to the Chemical Regulation Division, Mohawk no longer has a 10m non-target plant buffer zone, making application a simple process.

As well as this, the hazard phase has also been removed from the label. “Removing the buffer zone means that the whole crop can be treated, keeping the headland areas free of weeds,” adds James.

“It also makes spraying the crop a little easier, with no need to calculate a buffer margin, while the removal of the hazard phase simply gives a little more flexibility and reassurance.”
