What is Condor?
A NEW HERBICIDE FROM SIPCAM for post-emergent control of broadleaf weeds in cereals. Condor has two active ingredients, pyraflufen-ethyl and MCPA in the Potassium salt form.
Pyraflufen-ethyl is a GROUP G herbicide which has no known cases of resistance in Australia. MCPA is a GROUP I herbicide well known in Australia. When combined with pyraflufen-ethyl the two active ingredients are very complementary.
Pyraflufen-ethyl works quickly to desiccate plant foliage while MCPA is translocated to the growing points resulting in excellent weed control of a wide range of broadleaf weeds.
Condor controls weeds quickly by desiccating and burning leaf tissue that it contacts and symptoms such as spots and burnt blotches appear within a few days. Regrowth is prevented due to the MCPA concentrating in the actively growing parts of the plant, whether that part of the plant is initially contacted or not.
