An effective solution to control sickle bush encroachment on your farm.

Sendero 336 SL is a water-soluble concentrate herbicide for the selective control of woody plant species as listed in grazing, game ranches, conservation areas, forestry industrial areas and non-crop land.

Certain woody plants are essential for desirable wildlife habitat. Wildlife uses these plants for cover, sheltering for the young and nutrition. However, species such as sickle bush out- compete desirable shrubs for moisture and sunlight, if left unmanaged. The selectivity of Sendero 336 SL allows control of the undesirable brush while having little to no effect on desirable brush, even with broadcast aerial applications.

Sendero 336 SL translocates to the roots and underground bud zone more quickly and thoroughly than other products. This specialty product is your proven wildlife and livestock habitat enhancement partner.

Sendero 336 SL is not a plant poison an auxin-like growth regulator herbicide that is absorbed by leaves and roots. The active ingredients mimic plant hormones to disrupt plant growth. This leads to the plant demise. Sendero 336 SL applications can be done by aerial broadcast or by foliar spot application and has no restrictions regarding the removal or moving of livestock or game animals prior to product application. It also does not harm sensitive ecosystem fauna.

Product facts:

a.

It is a liquid formulation applied by air by means of a fixed – wing aircraft or helicopter at a spray mix rate of 40 liters per hectare. Drone applications are also gaining increased popularity.

b.

Aerial application of a liquid rather than a granule ensures more even and effective distribution of the active ingredients to reach the target plants.

c.

The product’s efficacy is not influenced by soil clay content.

d.

It can be applied with much greater accuracy to smaller areas by helicopter and even drones.

e.

It has no negative impact on grass species, so natural grazing is not affected. Good grazing grasses returns very quickly after application, as the dead trees do not use the available water and nutrients in the soil anymore.

f.

Where good grazing grasses establish, it suppresses tree seedlings that germinates form the seedbank from taking over the target area again.

g.

It is environmentally friendly, because it only targets thorny tree species such as Sickle bush, Black thorn and Sweet thorn. (Predominantly encroacher species)

h.

It does no serious harm to beneficial tree species, such as the “Witgat” (Boscia albutrunca), Maroela, Leadwood, and other Combretum species.

i.

The dead tree material can be harvested two years after application – therefore work creation is stimulated in rural areas through guaranteed harvesting of safe firewood for resale.

j.

The active ingredients are not harmful to people or animals, since they only contain synthetic plant hormones.

k.

Cattle and game in the areas of application do not need to be removed prior to application.

l.

The product’s characteristics means that very large areas can be treated in a short time.

m.

The active ingredients have minimal to no carry over in the soil, which means the areas treated can be converted to fields ready for cultivation within two years of application.

n.

Trees that remain in peripheral infestation areas that is not feasible to treat aerially, can easily be controlled by means of knapsack sprayer application of Sendero 336 SL, ensuring further work creation for rural communities.

A systemic, oil in water, concentrate herbicide for the control of the Opuntia species.

Mezavue 250 EW is a registered agricultural solution available for use in South Africa (limited), Namibia, and Botswana. This liquid formulation has been meticulously designed to provide a superior and safer alternative to M.S.M.A. 720 SL, which was characterized by its organic arsenical nature. The application of Mezavue 250 EW involves the use of a fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter, dispersing the solution at a spray mix rate of 40 liters per hectare. Additionally, it can be applied with ease through a knapsack sprayer.

In South Africa, the primary focus of this product lies in effectively controlling Opuntia species within the Cacti family. This includes addressing concerns related to jointed cactus, prickly pear, queen of the night cactus, and various others. Notably, Mezavue 250 EW stands out for its benign impact on grass species, ensuring that natural grazing remains unaffected by its application. This characteristic underscores its commitment to sustainable agricultural practices and environmental compatibility.
