Ravensdown provides a range of Agrochemicals for use in a wide range of farming situations, including herbicides, inseticides, fungicides, plant growth regulators, adjuvants, slug control and accessories.

A wide range of herbicides are available for use in a range of farming situations.  The correct use of the right herbicide is extremely important to control weeds in the most cost-effective manner and protect your profits.

Insect damage can have a major impact on the productivity of all crops.  Careful monitoring and insecticide selection is key to protecting the yield potential of your crops.  We have a range of insecticide solutions.

Fungal infections in crops can reduce yield, vigour and crop quality.  Monitoring and control are essential to get the most out of your investment. Control rust and some other fungal problems in ryegrass.

Ravensdown’s range of yield enhancing plant growth regulators channel growth into the more desirable areas of the plant, increasing the productivity of your crops.

Make the most of your applications by incorporating the right adjuvant.  Whether a surfactant for penetration and uptake, or a dye or foam marker to avoid double sprays, the correct selection and use of an adjuvant gives more economical and effective agrochemical application.

Endure is New Zealand’s most able slug bait.  Slugs and snails thrive where organic material exists, including new pastures, brassica crops, and cereals.  Even small populations can cause huge damage to seeds and seedlings.

Drum Pumps are also available from Ravensdown.
