Frontline™ XL

The trusted standard in flexible, reliable broadleaf weed control for cereal growers in the black soil zone.

WHY USE FRONTLINE™ XL?

  • Trusted. The benchmark for wide-spectrum weed control on over 40 million acres for 10 years and counting.
  • Beats the competition. Consistently better broadleaf weed control than Refine® , Buctril®; M or Target®. And there’s no need for additional broadleaf tank mixes.
  • Two active ingredients. Combination of Group 2 and Group 4 for reliable control of cleavers and chickweed.
