Sharpen® Herbicide

Fast and flexible broadleaf control for all seasons

Sharpen® is the latest multi-purpose herbicide most growers will soon want to have in the shed all year round. It is now registered with an additional 6 weeds, reflecting its exceptional reliability and versatility:

> Fleabane
> Indian Hedge Mustard
> Prickly Lettuce
> Milk Thistle
> Turnip Weed
> Wild Gooseberry

Many broadacre farmers already value Sharpen for its robust control of problem weeds in fallow and pre-plant. It can also be used as a harvest aid in winter pulses for cleaning of lucerne, and for seed-set reduction in wild radish and other problem weeds in winter cereals and established almond, citrus and pome orchards. 

In WeedSmart's crop-topping in winter cereals podcast edition, you can hear Phil Hoult, BASF Technical Services Manager, discuss Sharpen and it's unique fit for wild radish seed set reduction in winter cereals.
