  • Highly selective herbicide presented in pre-measured syringes for easy application and greater turf safety

How it works

 

Pylex Herbicide is a Group 27 herbicide. Inhibiting the plant enzyme 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD inhibitor), Pylex Herbicide compromises photosynthesis and results in the bleaching of new tissues on sensitive weeds. HPPD catalyses the breakdown of the amino acid Tyrosine which has three negative consequences for the target weed: stunting of weed growth, oxidative damage (bleaching), and chlorophyll damage (ceasing photosynthesis).

What our customers are saying

Pylex herbicide

We set up ryegrass areas in local soil for research every year within our R&D facility. All types of weeds pop up with the turf germination. One application of Pylex Herbicide is enough to hold most weeds down whilst ryegrass took over.
