Control key weeds in corn at your own best timing
Arietta® provides very effective post-emergence control of key broadleaf and grass weeds in maize and sweetcorn. With its exceptionally long application window and level of crop safety, Arietta allows you to spray problem broadleaf and grass weeds when it fits your schedule rather than worrying about what size or growth stage the weeds have reached.
Arietta will quickly control key broadleaf weeds up to 8-leaf and grass weeds to 3 tillers.
Arietta® contains topramezone, a herbicide from the HPPD (4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase) mode of action group – classified as Group F2.
Arietta is taken up by both leaves and roots, and transported within the plant, where it interferes with the synthesis of carotenoids. This leads to bleaching (chlorosis) of leaves and weeds typically die within 14 days of treatment.
Although Arietta is systemic, thorough coverage of the target weed is necessary for optimum results. Application to small, actively growing weeds when conditions are conducive to maximum photosynthesis (moist, warm, bright sunshine) is ideal.
