Chickweed in grassland

chickweed in grasslandChickweed is a weed which can quickly grow and smother a young ley or established grassland. It is currently warm during the day but cooler at night. Weeds are growing but selecting the right solution is important. Envy TM, a new solution from Dow AgroSciences containing the new grassland active ingredient florasulam, is a better solution than straight fluroxypyr because it works better where there is cooler and large diurnal temperature fluctuations.

Zypar unveiled to UK growers by Dow AgroSciences


Dow AgroSciences has today unveiled a brand new cereal herbicide which will deliver UK growers unparalleled control of key broad-leaved weeds in both the autumn and spring. Zypar™ is a co-formulation of Dow’s longstanding active florasulam – used in Spitfire™ – and Arylex™ Active which was introduced to the market in Pixxaro™ EC last year.

Zypar – flexible broad-leaved weed control

ZyparTM is a new herbicide for the control of broad-leaved weeds in winter and spring cereals.

A co-formulation of our longstanding active florasulam – used in Spitfire™ – and Arylex™ Active which was introduced to the market in Pixxaro™ EC last year, Zypar provides effective control in cold and variable temperatures, a key benefit to UK growers. If you can travel, you can apply Zypar.

The real benefits are that it is contact-acting herbicide and can be applied from early growth stages through to growth stage 45 in all winter and spring cereals except oats. It has outstanding control of key problem weeds such as cleavers, poppies, cranesbill, fumitory, fat hen, chickweed, brassicas and mayweeds. Used in the autumn, Zypar has the added bonus of being able to take out volunteer beans and manage high populations of cleavers, poppies and cranesbill before they start to seriously compete with crops and cause a yield penalty.
