Important Information


    Fast acting contact herbicide that desiccates all green plant tissue.

    Increased concentration means reduced container waste.

    Used pre-harvest in many cropping situations as well as along fence lines, drains and around stockyards where a fast-acting herbicide is required.

    Parable 250 is a rapid acting contact herbicide that desiccates all green plant tissue. Parable 250 is mainly used in winter spray programmes over established Lucerne combined with either Atratec, Simaflo or Terbaflo. The combination of the contact herbicide with a contact, root absorbing and residual herbicide is ideal for this situation.

    Parable 250 rapidly burns and desiccates any foliage it makes contact with so is ideal in any situation where rapid defoliation is required.

    Parable 250 is one of the most cost effective herbicides for the control of barley grass in waste areas, stock camps and established pastures. When the developing seed heads are sprayed, Parable 250 burns the seed embryo, making it infertile.


    As the application rates varies from crop to crop and situation to situation, it is advisable to read the label prior to use, to ensure the correct rate is applied. Parable 250 may be used in tank mixes with most commonly used herbicides.


    Destroys green plant tissue by a chemical and light interaction of chlorophyll. Has some localised translocation under low light conditions. It’s effect is rapid under high light conditions with total desiccation occurring within 4 - 7 days.
