Springbok® is a residual herbicide that can be used on all varieties of winter oilseed rape for the control of a range of broad leaved and grass weeds.


  • Protects yields through early removal of weed competition.
  • Controls key grass and broad-leaved weeds including cranesbill and shepherds purse giving you piece of mind.
  • Excellent pre and early post emergence residual and contact herbicide providing timing flexibility.
  • Improved efficacy in dry conditions compared to straight metazachlor providing greater confidence.
  • A maximum total dose of 1000g metazachlor/ha may be applied in a three-year period on the same field.

Why Springbok®?

Containing dimethenamid-P and metazachlor, Springbok® has both residual and contact action.

This formulation combination offers a unique weed range and consistent control in winter oilseed rape.

Springbok® works particularly well in dry conditions, which can be useful for general weed control in early sown crops. The product is taken up via cotyledons and roots and takes maximum effect before, or shortly after weed emergence. Optimum results are obtained from applications made to fine, firm and moist seedbeds.

Springbok® is highly effective for general weed control in oilseed rape and particularly for the control of Cranesbill and Shepherd’s purse, which can be competitive early on. The superior soil adsorption of Springbok® means that the active ingredients remain present and active for longer.

More reliable control

Dimethenamid-P is taken up by both the roots and young shoots of the weed, whilst metazachlor is taken up by the roots. Dimethenamid-P is not so reliant on ‘chasing’ the roots down through the soil but waits for the shoots to reach it. Hence, Springbok® is less affected by drier conditions, a common occurrence in early autumn.
