Nirvana® is a market leading herbicide containing pendimethalin and imazamox, for the pre-emergence control of a range of broad-leaf weeds in winter and spring field beans, combining peas and vining peas.
- Long lasting broad-spectrum weed control
- Two herbicide modes of action for improved efficacy and resistance risk management
- Good residual activity covers the germination periods of key weeds e.g. annual meadow grass, cleavers, poppy, charlock and later germinating weeds like black bindweed, fat-hen, redshank and knotgrass
- The addition of imazamox to pendimethalin gives improved control of brassicas, mayweed and speedwells
- In winter beans, can be used at lower rates in tank mix with Kerb to improve black-grass control
Nirvana® is a market leading herbicide containing pendimethalin and imazamox for the pre-emergence control of a range of broad-leaf weeds. Peas and beans are not competitive crops and are highly vulnerable to early weed pressure. There are also very few post-emergence herbicides options available. Nirvana® offers excellent, broad spectrum activity for early control of a wide range of competitive, broad-leaf weeds.
The pendimethalin gives long lasting residual activity to ensure crops get away with no competition, whilst the addition of imazamox gives improved control of brassicas, mayweed and speedwells.
When used alone, Nirvana® should be used at 4.5 l/ha to give long lasting, broad-spectrum weed control. Lower rates can be used when Nirvana® is tank mixed with other pre-em herbicides – consult your agronomist for best advice on rates and mix partners depending on the expected weed spectrum.
Nirvana® for weed control
In European trials, Nirvana® is shown to improve weed control when compared next to straight pendimethalin.
