Crop protection Bayer products for rice crops


Target weed control in rice. Rice growers need to effectively control weeds and also minimize the development of herbicide resistance. Our range of crop protection products will help protect rice crops from pests. 

When applied as a program spray in flooded bay-sown rice, Saturn® and Taipan® will effectively control aquatic broadleaf weeds such as arrowhead, alisma, star fruit, water plantain, dirty dora and barnyard grass.

Taipan is a Group H herbicide that offers rice growers an alternative mode of action to control broadleaf weeds that have developed Group B herbicide resistance. It's a unique option for early weed control, with a comprehensive weed spectrum. The excellent selectivity of Taipan to germinating or very young rice plants means there is no need to wait for rice crops to reach a certain stage of growth to minimise crop effects.

Saturn EC plays an important role in herbicide resistance management strategies and gives rice growers an alternative (Group J) herbicide mode of action for controlling barnyard grass and certain annual sedges, including dirty Dora.
