  • Benefits

  • Crop Suitability & Usage

  • Resources

  • Sakura is applied pre-emergence of the weeds ensuring competition from weeds is eliminated during the important crop establishment phase.
  • Sakura controls competitive and difficult grassweeds. It provides excellent control of the autumn germinating ryegrass, vulpia hair grass, annual poa and soft brome. In addition Sakura suppresses autumn geminating ripgut brome, prairie grass and wild oats.
  • As Sakura is applied soon after planting it means that you can get on to the paddock to spray. You can then have the confidence to move on to other jobs knowing Sakura is protecting your crops from weeds during autumn and early winter
