Mode of Action

Target is a combination of dicamba, MCPA and mecoprop.  Target contains three proven broadleaf fighting ingredients so it delivers triple action to ensure outstanding control of over 30 of the most persistent broadleaf weeds in cereals. And Target's thorough systemic action ensures superior performance because it moves through the weed in the direction of greatest nutrient flow-either up to the growing point or down to the roots.

Plus, Target is formulated to spread over the surface of the leaf for thorough coverage and fast penetration-even on weeds with hairy leaves like Kochia.
