Avadex Mode of Action

Tri-allate, the active ingredient in Avadex Excel 15G, is a thiocarbamate and it acts by inhibiting lipid synthesis. Avadex Excel 15G, when applied to the soil, forms a chemical barrier through which germinating weeds have to grow; they absorb the chemical and are killed.

Recommended crops grow through the barrier safely. However wild-oats germinating on or near the surface or from well below the treated layer may not be controlled. Weeds not completely controlled may be more susceptible to following herbicide applications in the programme.

The product is safe to all recommended cereal crops when used according to the label.
