Performance of XTRON 700WG Herbicide
Unlike many other active ingredients available in the Australian market, amicarbazone doesn’t just suppress Poa, it eliminates it. Evidence of XTRON® 700WG Herbicide working is much easier to see than with some other herbicide options, within 21 to 30 days Poa will typically be gone, allowing desirable turfgrasses to cover the bare patches. During efficacy studies it was observed that some biotypes or varieties of Poa annua exhibited less susceptibility to treatments than others, though this was typically <5% of the Poa population in the treated area.
