Non Selective Herbicides

About Gramoxone


GRAMOXONE is a unique, fast acting, non-selective, contact herbicide for control of most fibrous rooted grasses and annual broadleaf weeds with varied uses in a wide variety of crops. GRAMOXONE is a non-selective herbicide that is used by millions of growers and is, after nearly 50 years, still one of the most widely used herbicides in the world. It is used in around 100 countries on more than 100 crops.

GRAMOXONE is revolutionizing weed control by replacing the time-consuming chore of hand weeding. The active ingredient, paraquat, is deactivated when it reaches soil by rapidly binding to soil particles and does not have a negative effect on ground water or soil organisms, even after years of repeated applications.

The incredible success of GRAMOXONE is built on its unique features, its mode and speed of action, its versatility in terms of weather as well as its environmental behavior.
