Important Information


    Controls annual grass and some broadleaf weeds in fodder beet, red beet, pasture and turf/perennial ryegrass.

    Used in pasture to control barley grass during the winter.

    Fumate is the best and most cost effective way of controlling poa annual in turf crops.

    Fumate is also the main chemical used to control barley grass in perennial pastures due to its safety on the perennial species with minimal clover checking.

    Fumate is active in the soil for up to 10 weeks after application.

    Fumate has the added advantage of controlling a range of broadleaf weeds and can be applied by boom spray or hand gun.  Hand gun may be the best method of application for patchy barley grass situations.


    Application rates do vary from crop to crop depending on the weed spectrum present. Always read the label or refer to your Ravensdown Agrochemical Territory Manager. Never mix a surfactant of any type with Fumate as crop injury may result.


    Absorbed by the emerging shoot of grass weeds and by roots of broadleaf weeds soon after germination. Post-emergence applications are taken into the plant initially through foliage and later via the roots.
