Premium pre-emergent weed control
Pre-emergent herbicides used to be applied as a ‘cheap and cheerful’ precautionary measure with no great expectations of control. Group K chemistry has changed all that. Now products like Outlook® can boost the crop’s yield potential by promoting strong crop establishment and maintaining long-lasting control of weeds that would otherwise compete with the crop.
With its extended residual control of fat hen and other key weeds, Outlook is particularly valuable in a sweet corn/pumpkin or green bean rotation. It can also help manage annual ryegrass in winter pulse crops, and pinkweed (or fumitory) in poppies.
Outlook® is a selective pre-emergent herbicide for the management of certain broadleaf and grass weeds. Outlook can also be used for the post-emergence management of fumitory in poppies.
Outlook is mainly absorbed by the emerging shoot (coleoptile) of the weed. Outlook must be present in the top soil layer as the weeds germinate and the coleoptile passes through the treated soil to control susceptible germinating seedlings before or soon after they emerge.
Outlook will not control emerged weeds except cotyledon to 2-leaf pinkweed (fumitory) in 2 to 6-leaf poppy crops.
Outlook is most effective when incorporated by rainfall before weeds germinate. Reduced weed control may occur if there is insufficient soil surface moisture.
