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.


Benefits

Why use

Based on a unique combination of tried and trusted florasulam and fluroxypyr, Spitfire keeps on working whether it’s cool, warm or when diurnal temperatures are fluctuating. Spitfire also helps fight the threat of herbicide resistance thanks to its two proven ingredients – florasulam and fluroxypyr - with different mode of actions.
Can be used in spring sown barley and wheat from GS13-39, in winter wheat and barley from GS13-45 and in winter and spring sown oats from GS13-31
Can be used in cereals under sown with grass
Rainfast 1 hour
Following crops
Sown in the year of treatment: Cereals, oilseed rape, field beans, vegetable brassicas as transplants, grass
Sown the calendar year following treatment: Cereals, oilseed rape, field beans, carrots, vegetable brassicas as transplants, grass, linseed, peas, sugar beet, potatoes, maize, clover (for use in grass/clover mixtures)

Dual actives help to manage weed resistance

Autumn volunteer bean control
