Group 14 Herbicide

Spotlight® Plus Herbicide

Spotlight® Plus Herbicide is the only herbicide registered for sucker control in grapevines, olives, fruit and nut trees and rubus crops.

Quick Facts

Spotlight Plus® is a non-residual, contact herbicide that is readily absorbed by green leaves and stems of broadleaved plants with no translocation within the plant to roots or to other unsprayed leaves. When used at the label rates Spotlight Plus® has no residual activity from herbicide that falls onto soil.

  • Using Spotlight® Plus Herbicide requires less labour than the manual alternative whilst also reducing the risk of spreading trunk diseases through manual de-suckering wounds.
  • A non-residual contact herbicide designed to maximise efficacy and reduce drift.
  • Has excellent safety in vines and tree crops because the active constituent is not translocated within the plant.
  • Has excellent compatibility with knockdown herbicides for faster burndown and improved control of tough broadleaf weeds such as small flowered mallow.
