Controls Tough-To-Kill Broadleaf Weeds

A selective herbicide with an underutilized mode of action, TOUGH® 5EC enhances post-emergence control of actively growing broadleaf weeds. With a wide window of application, this pyridate-based product is a contact herbicide that works across a broad spectrum of weeds.

TOUGH 5EC is especially effective on Pigweeds, Palmer Amaranth, Waterhemp, Kochia, Common Lambsquarters, and Black Nightshades. It is even effective on strains resistant to other more-commonly used herbicides.

Adding TOUGH 5EC to your integrated weed management program can also help to combat weed resistance, leading to a higher quality crop.

Currently approved for use on corn, mint and chickpeas. Contact your Belchim USA representative for more information.
