The mechanism of action of herbicide Select
In the process of processing, it is quickly absorbed by weeds and passes into its root. After a couple of hours, the herbicide will fully penetrate the weeds, stop cell division and photosynthesis.
The type of soil and the peculiarities of weather conditions do not affect the effectiveness of the drug. It shows good results in small doses, and when used in a tank mix reduces the dosage of other pesticides.
Weeds completely die after spraying after 1-2 weeks. New ones can appear in at least 8 weeks.
Weed activity spectrum
Almost 40 species of annual and perennial cereal weeds are completely killed by Select. This even includes the carrion.
The herbicide is practically useless against:
- creeping wheatgrass;
- Aleppo sorghum;
- finger pig;
Also, it does not act on weeds that have appeared after spraying.
Duration of action
With the correct dosage calculation and spraying, new weeds should appear in about 2 months.
Select's standard rate is 50-60 liters per hectare. The product is only suitable for spraying. To process a hectare of annual cereal plants, you need up to 700 ml of the substance, for perennial - 1.8 liters.
The consumption rate of the substance is about 300 liters of diluted emulsion per hectare.
Preparation of working substance
The mixture must be prepared right before use. For this, only clean water is suitable. It can also be a technical liquid, the main thing is that it does not contain suspensions and mechanical impurities that can clog the sprayer nozzles.
Fill the sprayer tank with water halfway, turn on the mixer and add the required amount of Select. When everything is well mixed, fill the tank to the top with water. If foam forms during stirring, a little antifoam can be added to the solution.
Instructions for use
It is necessary to carry out processing during the period when 2-6 leaves appear on the weeds. The vegetation of cultivated plants does not affect this.
It is recommended to perform the procedure early in the morning or in the evening. If there is a strong gusty wind outside, it is better to postpone it. Rain or temperature fluctuations do not affect the performance of the Select.
Spraying can be done once a season. It is possible to contact the treated cultures only 7 days after the procedure. Mechanized work is allowed 72 hours after application.
|Culture||Weed type||Herbicide amount||When to spray|
|0.6-0.7 l per hectare|
When 2-4 leaves appeared on the weeds
|Rape, soy||0.5-0.7 l per hectare of crops|
|Beets, sunflowers, soybeans and rapeseed||Cereal perennials, creeping wheatgrass||1.6-1.8 liters per hectare of crops||When the creeping wheatgrass reaches a height of 20 cm|
It is strictly forbidden to violate the instructions, as this can negatively affect the condition of cultivated plants and their yield.
The maximum effectiveness of the drug is achieved at a temperature of + 8-25 degrees and a humidity of 65-90 percent.
If it is very hot and dry outside, the herbicide may lose some of its effectiveness.
Spraying should be carried out in a protective suit, gloves, glasses and a mask, avoid getting the solution on the skin and mucous membranes. After successful completion of the procedure, you need to thoroughly wash your hands and wash your face.
The herbicide is safe for bees, but it should be used when the bees do not fly out.
The Select has a third hazard class, so it is relatively safe for mammals.
Is it compatible with other drugs
The select does not interact with other herbicides, so such mixing is best avoided. There is a certain antagonism in tank mixes with bentazone and imazaquin, which are used to control broadleaf weeds.
Terms and conditions of storage
Select should be stored in its original packaging in a dry, dark, well-ventilated area. It is suitable for 2 years from the date of issue and provided that the integrity of its packaging has not been violated. It is forbidden to get the substance on food or food.
