Herbicides can be the key to a sustainable farming business, and may be the only solution to some critical infestations in modern agriculture. Nevertheless, they can also be the cause of controversy and their misuse can give rise to substantial claims.
Issues around bioaccumulation and the environmental impact of herbicides mean that they are subject to stringent regulation. Such issues have given rise to widespread scepticism among the public and regulators alike where the use of chemicals such as organophosphate herbicides is concerned.
Using the right combination of chemicals, at the right time, in the right way, in compliance with all the prevailing regulations is no easy task. Our industry specialists can help you choose the right one and decide the correct method of application, optimum dose and even the best time of application to ensure maximum effectiveness and minimum impact.
