TEZOSAR® 500 SC is a selective herbicide characterized by systemic action that can be purchased in the form of a concentrate (concentrated suspension) for dilution with water.

It is active from the germination stage of weeds to the 4-leaf stage.

  • lamb’s quarters,
  • field pansy,
  • wall speedwell,
  • European black nightshade,
  • false mayweed,
  • cleavers,
  • black-bindweed (wild buckwheat),
  • shepherd’s purse,
  • red-root amaranth. 

How to use TEZOSAR® 500 SC herbicide

The product is intended for use in the period from the 2 to 6- leaf stage of maize. However, the developmental phase of weeds should also be considered.
