Instructions for the use of the herbicide Mortyra, principle of action and consumption rates

Herbicide Mortyra is an effective agent that is often used in agriculture. It is available in the form of water-dispersible granules. When dissolved in water, the composition is transformed into a homogeneous suspension. To achieve success in weed control, it is necessary to properly prepare a working solution and strictly follow the instructions for its use.

Composition, release form and purpose of the drug Mortyra

The product is available in the form of water-dispersible granules. The active component of the substance is tribenuron-methyl. 1 kilogram of the drug contains 750 grams of active ingredient. The agent is included in the chemical class of sulfonylurea. It is sold in bottles of 100 grams..

How does weed control work?

The substance is characterized by systemic activity. It is absorbed by the leaves and roots of the weeds and spreads rapidly through the plant structure. In sensitive cultures, the substance provokes the blocking of a special enzyme - acetolactate synthase. This component takes part in the production of important amino acids. When it is suppressed, the development of plants stops, after which their death occurs.

The main symptom of the action of the substance is a sudden stop in the development of weeds. It occurs several hours after treatment. Obvious symptoms in the form of reddening of veins, chlorosis of foliage, death of growth points and necrotic tissue damage occur after 5-10 days.

The complete death of weeds occurs 15 days after spraying.

If the weeds are in a late phase of development and are characterized by low sensitivity to the action of the composition, their death does not occur. Such grasses stop growing and do not compete with cultivated plants.

The protective effect lasts up to 3 weeks after spraying. Mortar helps to deal with 100 different weeds. These include highlander, walker, starfish, thistle and many other plants.

Benefits of Application

The main advantages of the herbicide include the following:

  • broad spectrum of action - the substance allows you to cope with a large number of dicotyledonous weeds;
  • flexible terms of use;
  • excellent technological characteristics;
  • complete harmlessness for the following crop rotation plants.

Consumption rate

The dosage of the substance depends on the variety of plants:

  • against annual weeds, 1-1.75 liters of the substance are used per 1 hectare of area;
  • against perennial plants use 2-2.5 liters per 1 hectare of planting.

The consumption of the working solution is 200-300 liters per 1 hectare of area. In the case of aviation, the consumption of the substance is 25-50 liters per 1 hectare of planting.

How to properly prepare and use a working solution

To achieve the effect when using the substance, the instructions for use must be clearly followed. The product is available in the form of granules that dissolve in water. This makes it possible to obtain a homogeneous suspension. To prepare a working solution, it is worth focusing on the consumption rates of the product.

It is recommended to process plants in warm weather. In this case, the soil must be sufficiently moistened. The procedure should be carried out during the period of active growth of weeds. Precipitation that fell 1 hour after the manipulation does not reduce the effectiveness of the herbicide.

To increase the speed of action of the agent, it is worth combining the use of the drug with mineral oil. For 1 hectare, it is recommended to take 1-1.5 liters of the substance. In this case, the dosage of the herbicide is reduced by 10-15%.

Mechanical processing is permissible only 5 days after using the Mortyra. The herbicide disintegrates in water and soil in a short time. It does not affect the cultivated plants that are planned to be grown in this place. There is no risk of re-development of weeds.

To prevent the emergence of resistance, it is recommended to use herbicides with different mechanisms of action.

Experts advise to alternate them.

The mortar can be used to eliminate the carrion of previously growing crops. To do this, use the minimum dosage of the drug. For 1 hectare, 0.8-1 liter of the substance will be required.

Safety precautions when using herbicide

The product is considered safe for humans and animals. It does not adversely affect bees and fish. However, when processing plants, you should follow the safety rules:

  • use personal protective equipment;
  • quit smoking and drinking water or food during processing;
  • take a shower after the procedure.

Toxicity and compatibility with other substances

The herbicide belongs to the third hazard class. This means that it has minimal toxicity and virtually no harm to humans and animals.

In tank mixtures, the substance can be combined with different types of postemergence herbicides. Combination with Torero, Goltix 700 and other substances is possible. But before using such combinations, it is worth assessing their compatibility.

How to store the product correctly

It is recommended to keep the drug in an airtight container. The temperature can be from -30 to +30 degrees. In an unopened original packaging, the product can be stored for 3 years.

Drug analogs

An effective analogue of Mortyra is the drug Granstar.

Mortyra herbicide is highly effective and can control most types of weeds. To achieve pronounced results, you should strictly follow the instructions.
