  • It degrades rapidly in soil and does not leave residues sensitive to following crops.



Benetrone 480 SL is a soluble liquid containing 480 g/l of Benetrone 480 SL active ingredient.


Mode of action

Benetrone 480 SL is a benzothiadiazone herbicide that interferes with photosynthesis of susceptible plants. Visible injury to the treated leaf surface usually occurs within 4 to 8 hours, followed by plant death.

Benetrone 480 SL is a contact herbicide absorbed by plant leaves. In resistant (tolerant) plants, it is rapidly broken down into natural plant components. A fraction of applied product may be absorbed by roots and translocated to other plant parts. Benetrone 480 SL is quickly metabolised and incorporated into natural plant components. It has little effect on germinating seeds.


Recommendations for use

Benetrone 480 SL is used in legume crops as a post-emergence contact herbicide to control a wide range of broadleaved weeds. It is particularly recommended in peas, beans, groundnuts and soybeans. It may also be used in cereals undersown with legumes. It can be used alone or in mixtures.
