OLYMPUS 70% WATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULAR HERBICIDE is a selective pre-plant, pre-emergence and postemergence herbicide for use in spring, durum, winter wheat and triticale.
ENVIRONMENTAL AND BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY
OLYMPUS 70% WATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULAR HERBICIDE is absorbed by foliage and roots of weeds and offers contact and residual weed control. OLYMPUS 70% WATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULAR HERBICIDE provides the most consistent control when 0.5 inches of activating rainfall occurs prior to the weeds reaching a tolerant stage. OLYMPUS 70% WATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULAR HERBICIDE is active against many important grass and broadleaf weeds (see list below for details). Best weed control can be expected when applications are made after the crop has fully emerged and before grass weeds tiller.
Environmental conditions which support vigorous growth of crop and weeds result in highest herbicidal activity. Following application, symptoms of herbicidal activity may develop within several days. Speed of action depends on environmental conditions and increases with increasing temperature and moisture. Sensitive weeds.quickly stop growing and no longer compete with the crop. Visible signs of activity include termination of plant development, yellowing and/or reddening of weeds, and finally plant death. Abnormal environmental conditions (excess soil moisture or drought, extreme cold weather) can influence crop tolerance and herbicidal activity and may cause temporary damage to the crop or reduced levels of weed control. This may result in weed stunting, rather than weed death. However, weed competition will be greatly reduced, and should permit normal crop development. Crop response may occur when frost occurs shortly after application to actively growing wheat. In winter wheat, OLYMPUS 70% WATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULAR HERBICIDE can be applied either in the fall or the spring, or as a sequential treatment in the fall followed by a spring application. Fall applications generally offer more effective weed control than spring applications, unless drought or extreme rainfall provides unusual conditions. Best and most consistent weed control is provided by sequential applications in fall and spring.
