Important Information


    ​Pasture Guard® Bentazone is lucerne and clover safe making it suitable for very young pastures containing seedling clovers or establishing lucerne stands.

    It is very effective on some hard to kill weeds such as seedling chamomiles, cleavers, nettles, nodding thistles, storksbill, and a wide range of broadleaf weeds in new lucerne and pasture, allowing the pasture to establish in the paddock.

    It controls many invasive species and prevents establishment of many weeds


    ​At all times you should refer to the Pasture Guard® Bentazone label.

    Rates vary from weed species and whether the plant is a seedling or established plant. Pasture Guard® Bentazone can be tank mixed with most commonly used herbicides.


    Bentazone is absorbed mainly by the foliage and inhibits photosynthesis in susceptible plants. Legumes such as clover and peas are not susceptible to bentazone.
