Weeds are often one of the biggest problems encountered by farmers. Their challenge is to control all weeds in a reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly way.
Alion™ is a new high-performance broad spectrum, soil active herbicide for use in established permanent crops such as citrus, grapes, fruit trees, tree nuts, industrial plantations and perennial sugar cane. Bayer CropScience´s new compound controls a broad spectrum of weeds, including species which are difficult to eliminate such as annual bluegrass, goosegrass, ryegrass and goosefoot.
Alion™ has an outstanding mode of action and thus provides excellent longer-lasting, broad cross-spectrum and resistance-breaking weed control.
Field trials show that Alion™, applied alone or in combination with other herbicides, can control ACCase-, ALS-, triazine- and glyphosate-resistant weed species. Another advantage for the operator is the low application rate. Because of the long-lasting action and the broad spectrum of activity, the number of applications can be reduced. Length of control has been equal to longer than all other registered products tested at the manufacturer’s recommended use rates.
