Puma S

Puma S can be relied upon to consistently deliver a high level of control of wild oats in wheat and perennial ryegrass seed crops and to control lesser canary grass in wheat. Both of these grass weeds compete to significantly reduce the amount of nutrients, light and water that are available to your crop. Without early and effective control you will see a dramatic reduction in your yield, grain quality and profit!
