Betanal Forte has offered forty years of effective weed control for New Zealand farmers. Betanal Forte is an effective post-emergence contact herbicide for the control of a wide variety of broad leaved weeds in beet crops.
Betanal Forte readily controls seedling stages of: chickweed, fathen, fumitory, groundsel, redroot, shepherd’s purse, spurrey, nettle and twin cress. Black nightshade, cornbind and willow weed are controlled only up to four true leaf stage. Grass weeds, mature annual broad-leaved weeds, perennial broadleaved weeds and wireweed are not controlled.
Small beet plants do not tolerate competition from weeds. You should aim, therefore, to establish the crop quickly in a fine, firm seedbed and ensure weed competition is eliminated by applying a robust weed control programme.
Effective weed control during the first 8 - 10 weeks of the crop's life will maximise crop yields and returns.
