Dow Shield® 400


Dow Shield® 400 is a post-emergence herbicide which provides economic control of a range of perennial and annual broad-leaved weeds in oilseed rape, sugar beet and a wide range of other crops.

Flexible on dose rate and ideal for a programmed approach, Dow Shield 400 gives superb control of difficult weeds including mayweeds and thistles.
The double strength formulation of Dow Shield 400 provides the same level of control as our previous formulation but simply with less packaging, giving significant benefits to the end user. Coupled with the new self-seal technology, waste disposal is simplified with this new packaging concept.
