Cowboy 80 EC is absorbed by the leaves of narrow-leaved weeds. Active growth stops in 48 hours in narrow-leaved weeds sensitive to the product. Effects of the product are seen in 1-3 weeks depending on the weed type and environmental conditions. Rots in the weed’s nodes and growth spots become visible and the weed dies after young leaves turn yellow. The product is not affected by rain starting 2-3 hours after application. The excipiant (safener) in the formulation of the herbicide encourages the metabolism and increases the selectivity of the herbicide on wheat. It is tolerated very well by wheat if applied during the recommended period and at the recommended dose.
Method of Application
Cowboy 80 EC may be used at any time from post-emergence of wheat and weeds, e.g. from the 3-leaf stage of wheat to the end of tillering. Best results are obtained from Cowboy 80 EC if it is applied when most of the weeds have emerged and, for example, they are actively growing under warm and moist conditions. Since it has no permanent effect, narrow-leaved weeds that appear after administration are not inspected. In cases when rainfall is expected within 2 hours following the administration, administration should not be made. The product is not affected by rain starting 2-3 hours after application. The product should be applied by a sprayer fitted on a tractor, employing medium- and high-volume ground sprayers and using a minimum of 15 l water per decare. Atomizers or back sprayers are not recommended. It is tolerated very well by wheat if applied during the recommended period and at the recommended dose. Cowboy 80 EC is not recommended to be used in products other than wheat. Since Cowboy 80 EC rapidly disintegrates in soil, it barely has any effect from the soil. Therefore, there are no limitations for crop rotation.
Compatibility: It is not recommended to mix with other pesticides. If it is needed to prepare a mixture, a compatibility test should be done before application.
