Diquat Non-Residual Herbicide is for pre-harvest crop desiccation and the control of a wide range of broadleaf weeds in certain crops as per directions for use. Diquat non residual herbicide is also for use in aquatic areas to control weeds including duck-weed, red azolla, water hyacinth, salvinia, marsilea, water lilies , water lettuce, cattail and pond-weed.
Diquat is an aqueous solution of diquat, a non-volatile herbicide with unique properties. It very quickly kills green growth with which it comes into contact and is particularly effective against broadleaf weeds. It is inactivated on contact with the soil and crop roots and seeds below the soil remain unharmed. It can be safely applied around bushes and trees which have no green bark. It is non-volatile, easily mixed with water and active at low concentrations.
Diquat can be used pre-planting and pre-crop emergence to control weeds in seed beds before sowing, or post-sowing pre-crop emergence. Apply as a blanket spray with this product using boom spray equipment or knapsack sprayers.
Diquat not only provides an efficient and reliable means of preparing a crop for harvest in potatoes, but desiccation with Diquat will also contribute to good tuber uniformity, skin set and storage.
Diquat acts rapidly on the green parts of all plants and is locally systemic. For best results, an even and complete coverage with good penetration of the spray into the target foliage is necessary. Applications made in dull weather or at the end of the day will help to maximise the performance of Diquat resulting in the green parts of most plant crops and weeds being completely desiccated within a few days of spraying.
Diquat is a contact herbicide that produces desiccation and defoliation. Diquat is a nonselective herbicide that acts quickly to damage only those parts of the plant to which it is applied.
