Maya- A new broadleaved weed herbicide for use in the spring in cereals


Another active ingredient ioxynil will soon be taken off the market. Ioxynil was often sold with bromoxynil in products such as Stellox and Oxytril CM. Maya is a new formulation of bromoxynil and is a worthy replacement for these old mixture products. It is an ideal mixer product with SU's and Nufarm's own phenoxy chemistry

Maya is in a different chemical class to the ALS group of chemistry and is a useful product for resistance management.

Maya weed control spectrum is particularly suitable for the weed spectrum found in spring cereals but is also highly complimentary to the weed spectrum of many broadleaved weed herbicides found in winter cereals

Download Nufarm's broadleaved weed identification chart


With many new agronomy trainees and young farmers entering the industry now, Nufarm have produced a weed seedling identification chart which is available to download. It is always difficult to identify young broadleaved weeds. This chart shows over 50 weeds species at a growth stage when many herbicides are applied. It is often the case that weeds in the same family are susceptible to the same herbicide. Nufarm have colour coded each species according to the family it belongs to
