Agrochemical manufacturer Belchim Crop Protection are delighted to confirm the addition of an amenity vegetation (around) recommendation to the Chikara label. The same label recommendation is expected to come through the regulatory system shortly for Katana.
Chikara/Katana contain the active ingredient flazasulfuron, from Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha of Japan and are already established as the key products of choice for residual total weed control management in both the public and commercial sectors. The addition of amenity vegetation to the label will enable grounds maintenance organisations to combine efficient delivery of low active ingredient with effective and long lasting weed control.
“There has not been an effective product for use in shrub beds for a few years now due to regulatory constraints which prohibited the use of many older products in the amenity sector. Chikara/Katana aim to fill the void left by the loss of these products and will deliver season long weed control across all porous surfaces found within the amenity industry “confirms Peter Ingram, Senior Technical Advisor for Belchim Crop Protection.
“Chikara/Katana are only available via our trained and qualified distributors, Rigby Taylor, Nomix and Sheriff Amenity“ he concludes.
