Sakura 850 WG Herbicide
Setting a new standard for pre-emergent weed control
Sakura has set new standards of performance, reliability and convenience for pre-emergent control of annual ryegrass – including herbicide-resistant annual ryegrass – and other key weeds in wheat (except durum wheat) and triticale.
Sakura is a Group K herbicide that can be applied up to 3 days before incorporation by sowing. It provides extended residual control of annual ryegrass, barley grass, annual phalaris, silver grass and toad rush in wheat (except durum wheat) and triticale.
Sakura is also registered for the suppression of brome grass and wild oats.
Sakura can be used to control weed populations that have already developed resistance to other chemistry groups. However, where possible it should be used as part of a herbicide rotation to help delay the development of resistance.

Sakura controls five key weeds: annual ryegrass (including populations resistant to other modes of action); barley grass; annual phalaris (Phalaris paradoxia only); toad rush; and silver grass.
Sakura controls weeds in two cereal crops: wheat (except durum wheat) and triticale.
Sakura is effective in up to 50% trash cover.
Sakura can give longer residual control than other herbicides.
Sakura is applied at a rate of 118 g/ha - less than one measuring cup per hectare.
Sakura has a 3-day application-to-sowing window.
