Mode of ActionAs an herbicide(it’s also known by the brand name Gramoxone), paraquat acts by inhibiting photosynthesis. In light-exposed plants, it accepts electrons from photosystem I(more specifically ferredoxin, which is presented with electrons from PS I) and transfers them to molecular oxygen. In this manner, destructive reactive oxygen species(ROS) are produced.
It is quick touch-killing herbicide than lose activity in earth and without leaving toxicity in the soil.
Mix the required amount of PARAQUAT SL with clean water in a spray tank. Add non-ionic wetting agent for best results at three times the rate advised on the label for fungicides. Apply by ground sprayer in 200 to 500 ℓ water. Use a high volume and high dosage rate for spraying dense weed growth. Ensure good weed cover. Do not spray buds or green parts of any crop. PARAQUAT SL kills green tissue but does not harm mature bark. It is inactivated rapidly on contact with the soil and has therefore no residual action.

2,5 – 5,0 ℓ
Apply overall when weeds are 10 to 15 cm high before bud burst of the vines.
Subsequently as a directed spray.
2,5 – 5,0 ℓ
Spray as necessary from Spring onwards. Pome fruit only: Mix with SIMAZINE for residual effect.
CITRUS, AVOCADOS, PECANS , PAPAYAS,etc.
1,25 – 5,0 ℓ
In citrus only, PARAQUAT SL can be mixed with a suitable residual herbicide.
BANANAS, TEA & COFFEE
1,25 – 5,0 ℓ
Apply through a low pressure floodjet nozzle.
1,5 –3,0 ℓ
Directed post-emergence in plant and ratoon cane. Should the spray come into contact with green cane leaves scorching will occur but this is only a temporary effect. Other suitable herbicides may be added for residual effect.
LUCERNE(> 6 months old)
2,5 – 5,5 ℓ
Apply just before dormancy breaks or after cutting before regrowth of lucerne occurs.
(grown in rows)
1,25 – 2,5 ℓ
Use a knapsack sprayer with suitable shield to protect all parts of the crops from spray mist.
Stale seedbed method
1,25 – 2,0 ℓ
Prepare seedbed with fertilizer, irrigate and let the weeds emerge to cover the surface. Spray and sow within 3 days without reworking the seedbed. This method is especially useful for crops for which no other herbicde has yet been registered e.g. lettuce,chickory and cucurbits. These may, also be sown a few days before spraying.
1,5 – 4,0 ℓ
Apply before or just after planting annual crops. May be mixed with a corresponding residual herbicide.
2,5 – 5,0 ℓ
Use 200 litres water/ha. Do not apply if haulms show signs of wilting as tuber damage may occur. Spray ONLY when at least 5 hours of intensive sunshine are expected to follow.
Young weeds Mature weeds
Use 500 to 1000 ℓ water/ha depending on density of vegetation.
2,5 – 3,75 ℓ
Two months before the onset of the fire season: Spray a 1 to 2 m wide band (the sparser the vegetation, the wider the band) on both sides of a 5 to 12 m wide untreated strip (or about 10 m from a road or canal). Burn the sprayed bands 3 weeks later, while the unsprayed areas are still green and unburnable. The strip between can be burned relatively safely as soon as the first frost or drought occur so that the veld cannot be burnt.
2,5 – 3,75 ℓ
Spray around young trees with a special appliance.
Remove contaminated clothing, shoes and leather goods immediately. Wash contaminated areas with soap and water. If skin is damaged, the paraquat can be absorbed through the skin. Emergency personnel should wear gloves and avoid contamination. If irritation persists, get medical attention immediately.
Flush eyes with lukewarm, gently flowing water for at least 20 minutes or until the product is removed, while holding the eyelid(s) open. Take care not to rinse contaminated water into the unaffected eye or onto the face. If irritation, redness or burning sensations develop, get medical attention immediately.
Do not induce vomiting. Wash mouth with water and give water to drink. Seek medical advice immediately.
Advice to physician
Rapid treatment is essential. Wash out stomach and test urine and gastric aspirate (if clear) for presence of paraquat. Give up to 1 litre of 15 % aqueous suspension of Fuller’s Earth, orally or via gastric tube, together with suitable purgative (200 m of aqueous solution of mannitol). Repeat administration of absorbent plus purgative until absorbent is seen in stools. This should normally take between 4 to 6 hours after start of treatment. Do NOT administer supplement OXYGEN.
