Spitfire®

Herbicide

Spitfire® helps combat a wide range of broad-leaved weeds in cereal crops, for use in both autumn and spring. Suitable for use throughout the season it protects against yield loss and prevents the build up of weed populations from GS13 right up to GS39 (GS45 in winter crops). Outstanding against cleavers, Spitfire also controls other key weeds, including volunteer beans, brassica weeds, groundsel and mayweeds.
