This is a powerful weapon against broadleaf weeds in corn!

Coltrane is a selective systemic herbicide intended for the control of annual perennial broadleaf weeds in maize crops.

“It is a new preparation on our market, but it contains two very effective active substances for weed control in corn. These are mesotrione and dicamba “, states Milan Radović, representative for Srem and Macva.

Mesotrione solves the problem with one-year-olds broadleaf weeds, while the combination of mesotrione and dicamba leads to a perfect solution of perennial most hardy broadleaf weeds in corn. By the synergy of these two active substances, we have a solution for all broadleaf weeds on plots.

The time of application of Coltrane is different to the ninth leaf corn.

“There is no longer a need for producers to see whether it is the fifth or sixth leaf, whether the first one has dried or not, whether it counts or not, so they have space to protect up to the ninth leaf of corn,” Radović emphasizes.

The dose of the preparation is 2 l/ha. Coltrane successfully controls all economically important weeds Cinderella, tatula, bonito, mustard, various types of peppers, wild sunflower, ragweed, burdock. It can be used twice, in the first treatment up to the fourth – fifth leaf to use 1.2l/haand later more 0.8l/ha. In this way, we will control broadleaf weeds in time.

“If you have a plot that has been made with one preparation for many years, there is a possibility that one weed is dominant, that the preparation you used no longer has an effect on that weed, Coltrane is the solution in that case as well,” Radovic said.

The active substance dicamba has a fast action, it gives an immediate effect, on the other hand, the mesotrione also acts foliar and soil.

For a complete solution of weeds in corn Coltrane can be mixed with preparations based on nicosulforone or Nicogan and other pesticides of wild sorghum in corn.

Coltrane is also very successful on plots where a preparation was made that had no effect on weeds, later new weeds appeared, and the biggest problem was the cinderella size of 20 cm.

Zikica Milovanovic from the company ZZ Agronom Prhovo says: “One preparation was used there and there were omissions, cinderella appeared which was not destroyed, we were looking for a solution for it.” In cooperation with the company ADAMA and their professional service, we came up with the preparation Coltrane with which we worked on protection and the effects of vide.“

Even when the weather conditions do not allow entry to the plot until the seventh leaf Coltrane in 24 hours frees corn from the presence of weeds, grass clonesand 7-10 days later it will dry completely.

“This is extremely important because we will preserve additional moisture in the plot, we will preserve nutrients that are intended for corn, not weeds,” said Savo Jovanovic, regional representative. for southern Banat.
