Meteor herbicide: instructions for use of fungicide and composition, dosage

Herbicides are drugs used over large areas to control weeds. They are able to stop the development of weeds and completely destroy most of them in a short period of time. Choose products suitable for certain crops. For example, for the treatment of crops of wheat, rye, corn, triticale, barley and oats, the Meteor herbicide can be used, treatment in accordance with the instructions for use does not harm crops.

Composition and release form of herbicide "Meteor"

The drug for weed control is available in the form of a suspension emulsion. This allows it to be retained after spraying on leaves and other plant parts. Herbicide consists of 2 components:

  • 2,4-D acid 2-ethylhexyl ester - 300 grams\liter;
  • florasulam - 6.25 grams/liter.

The first component of the mixture penetrates the weed through the leaves, the second one affects the foliage and root system. The presence of two components reduces the likelihood of developing weed resistance to the herbicide. The manufacturer, LLC "Frandessa", is located in the Republic of Belarus.

Produced in plastic cans with a capacity of 1, 5, 10, 20 liters, with a tight screw cap. It contains information on the spectrum of application of the substance, its composition, detailed instructions on how to use the herbicide, precautions and protection.

Speed, mechanism and range of action

Herbicide is used against dicotyledonous weeds, suitable for the destruction of chamomile, bedstraw, poppy and other pests on crops of spring and winter wheat, rye, oats, barley, corn, triticale (wheat-rye hybrid).The fields where crops are located for seeds are not cultivated.

Complete death of weeds occurs 2-3 weeks after the treatment of crops, the effect begins already 1 hour after spraying, becomes noticeable after 3-4 hours. A single treatment per season is enough to protect plants.

The active components of the herbicide affect all parts of the weeds. 2,4-D acid 2-ethylhexyl ether decomposes proteins, slows down the process of photosynthesis, provokes the destruction of starch and inulin present in plants. It provokes a violation of the water balance and metabolism in the tissues of a weed plant, without harming the sown crops. Florasulam blocks the production of enzymes necessary for the life of the plant.

Meteor herbicide benefits are:

  • possibility of use at low, from +5 °С, temperatures;
  • affects most dicotyledonous weeds;
  • economy of use, convenience of emulsion formulation;
  • can be used in tank mixes;
  • sharing with other drugs.

It has a not too high cost and the ability to process crops from the appearance of the first leaves of cultivated plants to the tubing phase (in corn - until 6-7 leaves appear).

Consumption rate and application

The drug is economical, it consumes 0.4-0.6 liters per hectare. The mixture is prepared before processing, the finished solution is not stored for more than a day. Processing is not carried out in sunny dry weather. Spray the herbicide after rain, when it is cloudy outside. Herbicide is recommended to be applied at a temperature from +7-8 °C to +25 °C. Do not use it after night frosts, to destroy overgrown weeds.

Safety precautions

Tanks for the preparation of working solutions are located on special sites, away from agricultural and residential premises, in places inaccessible to children and animals. Before preparing mixtures, it is necessary: to put on clothes made of thick fabric, with long sleeves. Tie your hair under a cap or scarf. Put on goggles, rubber gloves, a respirator.

Important: this work should not be done by people with allergic diseases, respiratory problems. After work, you must thoroughly wash your hands, exposed areas of the body.

"Meteor" is used with sulfonylurea derivatives, graminicides, in tank mixtures with "Dicamba" and other drugs. Compatibility information is available on the packaging and on the official website of the manufacturer. In each case, before use, a trial mixing of the necessary components is carried out with an assessment of their physico-chemical compatibility.

How to properly store the product

Herbicides should not be stored near food or feed. After use, the canister is tightly closed with a lid. Do not allow the container to heat up, direct sunlight on it. Means keeps efficiency at a temperature from +5 to +25 °C. Shelf life - 3 years from the date of manufacture.
