With its active ingredient mesotrione, BASILICO® belongs to the group of triketones. As a predominantly, but not exclusively, foliar herbicide, it is also absorbed to a certain extent via the root. In this way, sensitive weeds that emerge later in maize are controlled over a longer period of time.

BASILICO® is effective against chicken millet and other types of millet, as well as numerous weeds with a photo-oxidative effect, the bleaching of green parts of the plant.
