With just one application per year, Celadon is a powerful systemic penetrant, selective herbicide which controls many broad-leaved plants including: Daisy, Dandelion, Clover, Buttercup, Ribwort Plantain, Slender Speedwell in amenity grassland, lawns and managed amenity turf.
Celadon should be applied at a rate of 2 L/ha.
- Trusted formulation contains the active ingredients florasulam and fluroxypyr
- Low application rate (2 L/ha)
- Requires only 200 L/ha of water for knapsack application.
- Controls a wide range of weeds in managed turf, including domestic lawns including Slender Speedwell
- Ideal for newly established turf (2 leaf stage)
Celadon controls a wide range of broad leaved plants including:
- Ribwort plantain
Where to use
- Lawns: Any areas composed primarily of close mown grass, including such areas in private gardens.
- Amenity grassland: Areas of semi-natural or planted grassland subject to minimal or nonintensive management including golf roughs, airfields and predominantly grassed railway embankments and roadside verges.
- Managed amenity turf: Areas of frequently mown, intensively managed turf, including fields being used for turf production. May include areas for public use including all types of sports turf, golf greens, tees and fairways.
When to use
- Turf sown in spring or summer may be ready for spraying at or after the two-leaf growth stage - usually two months after sowing.
- Turf sown in late summer or autumn should not be sprayed until growth is resumed in the following spring – usually eight months after sowing.
- Apply when weeds are in active growth normally from March to October when the soil is moist.
- Do not apply in periods of drought unless irrigation is applied.
- Avoid mowing 3 days before and after spraying to ensure sufficient weed leaf surface is present and to allow uptake and movement of Celadon within the weed.

Bio-Chemical Mode of Action: Florasulam belongs to the ALS (Acetolactate Synthase) Inhibitors group of herbicides. Acetolactate synthase is an important enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of branched-chain amino acids. ALS inhibitors interrupt this process causing the plant to initially become chlorotic before necrosis of plant tissues followed by whole plant death occurs.
Mobility: Florasulam is absorbed through both the shoots and roots of plants. It is a systemic penetrant which means that the active substance can be translocated downwards through the plant within the phloem (sugar conducting tissues) and upwards through the plant within the xylem (water conducting tissues).
Application Timing: ALS inhibitors are best applied when the weeds are actively growing. They are more effective when target plants are young and in their vegetative phases.
Bio-Chemical Mode of Action: Fluroxypyr belongs to the synthetic auxin or plant growth regulator group of herbicides. Synthetic auxins work by inducing rapid abnormal cell growth and development in the stems, petioles and leaves of susceptible plants causing cell bursts and ultimately cell and plant death.
Mobility: Fluroxypyr is absorbed through the shoots of a plant. It is a systemic penetrant which means that the active substance can be translocated downwards through the plant within the phloem (sugar conducting tissues) and upwards through the plant within the xylem (water conducting tissues).
Application Timing: Synthetic auxins are best applied when the weeds are actively growing. They are generally more effective when target plants are younger and in their vegetative phases.
