Terrad’or, is regarded as fast acting hergbicide among non-selective herbicides in South Korea, quickly and forcefully controls weeds by inhibiting chlorophyll formation in weeds and generating active oxygen to destroy cells. It is highly rainfastness, and has no damage to humans and animals while its control efficacy on weeds resistant to glyphosate is strong.
Terrad’or Plus(tiafenacil 0.5% + glyphosate 24%), which was released by FarmHannong last year in South Korea, is a non-selective herbicide used in orchards and non-crop lands with a wide weed control spectrum and long residual efficacy. In addition, Terrad’or Gold(tiafenacil 0.8% + glufosinate-ammonium 16%), which was commercialized this year in interrow application, orchards and non-crop lands, can control troublesome weeds such as Copperleaf(Acalypha australis), Purslane(Portulaca oleracea), field horsetail(Equisetum arvense). Terrad’or ME, launched in Sri Lanka this year, is used as a pre-plant burn-down treatment for paddy rice and non-crop lands.
"Terrad’or, which has been developed over 10 years and with great effort, is recognized for its excellence," said Lee Yoo-jin, CEO of FarmHannong.
