Titus®

Herbicide

Titus® is a sulfonylurea herbicide containing rimsulfuron for control of broad-leaved weeds in potatoes. 

Titus is an important herbicide for potato growers, particular on organic soils where soil movement and weed loading mean that pre-emergence treatments need a follow up herbicide to control successive weed flushes, or in dry seasons when pre-emergence herbicide activity will be negatively affected.


Benefits

Titus is often used alone with a wetter to provide post-emergence activity across all potato varieties, excluding seed crops.

In fields where no pre-emergence herbicide has been applied, or if conditions have been too dry, a mixture of Titus + metribuzin and a wetter will broaden the weed spectrum.

Titus works most effectively against small, actively growing weeds, so target weeds at cotyledon to four-leaf stage, and before the crop reaches 15 cm, to minimise weed shading.
