Active Ingredient: clodinafop-propargyl

Formulation: Wettable Powder

Mode of Action:

The active ingredient clodinafop-propargyl and the safener cloquintocet-mexyl are absorbed through he leaves and shoots actively growing plants. They are rapidly translocated in the plants and accumulate in the meristematic tissues.
