SQUADRON® (Eastern Canada)

A broad-spectrum herbicide registered for grass and broadleaf weed control in a wide range of crops, most notably soybeans and potatoes. Can work alone or in combination with recommended tank mixes.

Key crops and application rates

Metribuzin inhibits the photosynthesis of grass and broadleaf weeds. Used pre-emergent susceptible weeds and crop seedlings emerge through treated soil, but 2 – 5 days later the weeds show chlorosis and necrosis. Plants treated post-emergent show chlorosis and necrosis between leaf veins, followed by wilting and death.
