Según la explicación, se refiere al tiempo de absorción del herbicida, de manera que la lluvia no lo lave y anule su efecto. ¡Suerte!

Rainfast Period for Various Post Herbicides

Shown below are some guidelines for minimum intervals between a postemergent herbicide application and a rainfall. If a rain should occur sooner than the interval, reduced weed control may result. Not all labels specify rainfast intervals; however, those listed are based on the best information available [university, manufacturer, etc.]

** Rain soon after application may reduce effectiveness. The number in parentheses represents rainfast periods based on old labels and/or university information.

Artículo explicativo:

La soja RR permite a los agricultores evitar o reducir el uso de herbicidas persistentes altamente activos de baja dosis; muchos de los cuales pueden dañar las plantas de soja y reducir los rendimientos. Una última y mayor ventaja es que los sistemas de gestión de malezas de soja RR son clementes. Ellos proveen a los agricultores una gama más amplia de posibilidades para lidiar con los problemas de malezas y oportunidades extra para compensar atrasos en operaciones de campo o por una *** lluvia inoportuna que lava los herbicidas de las malezas antes de que sean absorbidos***. En algunas granjas, estas ventajas agregan un poco más de producción por acre que cuando se siembran variedades tradicionales de soja.
