Important Information


    Parable is a fast acting contact herbicide that rapidly burns and desiccates any green plant tissue it hits.

    Parable is the mainstay of winter spray programmes over established lucerne and is very compatible with triazine herbicides such as Atratec, Simaflo & Terbaflo. The combination of the contact herbicide with a contact, root absorbing and residual herbicide is ideal for this situation.

    It 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 seedhead is sprayed, Parable enters the seed coat burning the seed embryo, rendering it infertile.

    As the application rates varies depending on crop and usage, it is advisable to read the label prior to use.


    Destroys green plant tissue by a chemical and light interaction of chlorophyll. Has some localised translocation under low light conditions.
