Important Information

  • Benefits

    Residual herbicide to control some annual grasses and many broadleaf weeds

    Used extensively as a pre and post-emergence herbicide in maize crops

    Used in established (12 month+) lucerne for pre-emergence weed control

     
    Atratec is the most cost effective herbicide for use in maize and sweetcorn crops.  It can be used either pre or post crop emergence providing a large window of application.  Atratec combines well with most other specific maize and sweetcorn herbicides.
  • Application

    Atratec is mixed with Maize Guard and other herbicides in maize and sweetcorn crops, Pasture Guard MCPA 750 in Linseed crops and Parable (Paraquat) in established Lucerne crops. As the weed spectrum is large and rates do vary for specific crops.


    Always refer to the label for application rate details.

  • Mode of Action

    Atratec is absorbed through leaves and roots to provide knockdown and residual action. It inhibits photosynthesis with symptoms of yellowing and then death. For the best results ensure that the soil surface is moist and clod free.

  • Storage

    • Keep out of reach of children.
    • Store in accordance with NZS 8409 Management of Agrichemicals.
    • Store in original container tightly closed in a locked, dry, cool, well ventilated area away from foodstuffs, fertilizers and seeds.

    Please refer to the product label for product handling and storage details.

  • Shelf Life

    When stored appropriately this product should show no significant degradation for two years from the date of manufacture. Please contact your Ravensdown Account Manager, or the Customer Centre on 0800 100 123, for further information about the use of any product that is older than this.

  • Mixing

    Atratec mixes readily with water. Pour the correct quantity into the partially filled (50%) spray tank with agitation running, and then add the remaining water with agitation. The spray mixture must be kept agitated before and during spraying and before spraying after a stoppage. Unused spray mixture may settle out overnight.

    Note: When using Atratec in mixtures with other herbicides ALWAYS add the Atratec to the tank first and mix as directed, then add the partner product with agitation to the almost full spray tank.

    Atratec is compatible with most other commonly used herbicides and insecticides.
