Oxadiazon is a selective and systemic pre-emergence and early post-emergence
herbicide of Oxadiazole group. It can inhibit the
protoporphyrinogen oxidase synthesis of weeds. Pre-emergence effect
is obtained at germination by contact with oxadiazon-treated soil
particles. The development of the shoots is stopped as soon as they
emerge - their tissues decay very rapidly and the weeds are killed.
Post-emergence effect is obtained by absorption through aerial
parts of weeds which are rapidly killed in the presence of light.
The treated tissues wither and dry out.; it delivers exceptional
broad-spectrum grass control for apples, pears, blackcurrants,
gooseberries, raspberries, ornamental trees and shrubs, hops, grape
vines and rice field; consistently controls a wide variety of
annual gramineous, sedge and broad-leaved weeds, including barnyard
grass, moleplant seed, monochoria vanalis, rotala indica, cyperus
difformis and more.
