How to Use Banvel Herbicide


Banvel herbicide is a product of the BASF Corporation. Banvel herbicide is used to control many types of broad-leaf weeds in crops. Its main active ingredient is Dicamba, and it can be tanked mixed with a 2,4-D herbicide. It is important that you use Banvel herbicide as directed to effectively kill the weeds. A solution that is too weak won't work, and one that is too strong could harm your crops.
