Uribest 4 SC
Euribest 4 SC is a systemic liquid herbicide contains the active ingredient ‘nicosulfuron’, a member of sulfonylurea herbicide group. It shows good herbicidal efficiency as post-emergence herbicide for selective controlling of both annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds and sedges especially in Maize field. This selectivity of Euribest 4 SC is achieved by the maize plants ability to metabolise nicosulfuron into harmless compounds. After foliar application, the compound works by being absorbed through the leaves, and travelling through the xylem to the meristematic regions. It retarded the shoot growth by inhibiting the plant enzyme acetolactate synthase (ALS) that ultimately blocks the biosynthesis of branched-chain amino acids. Euribest 4 SC is easy to use, requires no adjuvant and does no wash into the soil. It is harmless to birds, fish, bees and insects.
