Diuron 80DF Herbicide, a non-selective residual herbicide for the control of a wide range of grasses, broadleaf weeds in land not intended to bear vegetation, including rights-of-way, pipeline, highways, industrial sites, railways, and many other non-crop situations. Diuron 4L Herbicide is not corrosive to equipment and is certified as non-flammable. Diuron 80DF can be applied prior to the growth or the presence of weeds.
Diuron 80DF Herbicide may be applied to soil prior to emergence of weeds to control susceptible weed seedlings for an extended period of time. The degree of control and duration of effect will vary with the amount of chemical applied, soil texture, rainfall, and other conditions. Soils high in clay or organic matter require higher dosages than soils low in clay or organic matter for equivalent herbicide performance. Moisture is required to activate the herbicide. Best results occur if rainfall (or sprinkler irrigation) occurs within 2 weeks of application.
Diuron 80DF Herbicide applied before emergence of crop and weeds is an effective procedure because susceptible weeds are controlled in an early, vulnerable seedling stage before they compete with the crop. With favorable moisture conditions, this product continues to control weeds for some time as the crop becomes better able to compete. Should weed seedlings begin to break through the pre-emergence treatment in significant numbers, secondary weed control procedures should be implemented; these include cultivation and post-emergence herbicide application.
In crop areas Diuron 80DF Herbicide can be used for the control of barnyardgrass, crabgrass, lambsquarters, pigweed, purslane, ragweed, cocklebur, morningglory, sesbania, sicklepod, bluegrass, groundcherry, chickweed, dogfennel, fiddleneck, foxtail, rattail fescue, dayflower, hoorseweed, johnsongrass, marigold, sandbur, and many other listed weeds.
