Protect your wheat crop from Phalaris with Zidua®, a sustainable solution for effective Phalaris management

Phalaris is the toughest weed and it has changed over the past several years by developing resistance to herbicides with different modes of action. Zidua® overcomes this from 1st day itself, providing growers with superior, long-lasting residual tool to manage resistant Phalaris coupled with excellent crop selectivity. Now it’s time for you to change your farming practice and apply Zidua®

How it works?

Zidua® is applied as pre-emergence herbicide with combination of Stomp EC. Its root thinning activity keeps Phalaris population and growth under control so that it will not compete with wheat. Irrigation at 21st day controls the already emerged Phalaris and it works as a residual herbicide and gets absorbed through growing roots of Phalaris which leads to a significant long duration control. Zidua® and Stomp EC herbicides, with their combination of two different modes of action, help growers in resistance management in the long term.
