Makhteshim Agan of North America, Inc., has a new addition to its herbicide portfolio with the registration of Parazone 3SL.

Recently registered by EPA, Parazone is a broad spectrum, non-selective, burn-down herbicide that is also used as a defoliant and desiccant with multiple uses on over 100 crops including corn, soybeans, grapes, cotton, alfalfa and many fruit trees and vegetables.

Parazone 3SL, containing the active ingredient paraquat, provides fast, effective control against tought weeds, sedges and grasses in a formulation that is 50 percent more concentrated than the leading brand.

Parazone contains the same active as Gramoxone Max and eliminates weeds in as little as 48 hours.

“Parazone is formulated for use as a harvest aid, in preplant burn downs and for orchard-floor management to provide fast, effective, broad spectrum weed control,” said Dave Downing, MANA herbicide senior product manager.

“Also an effective tool for resistance management, it offers a different mode of action that works against glyphosate-tolerant weeds.”

Concentrated and packaged in convenient containers, Parazone is easy to apply and simple to handle and it mixes well with other herbicides.

Like all products featuring the active ingredient paraquat, Parazone is a Restricted Use Pesticide and can only be used by certified applicators or persons under their direct supervision.

“The bottom line is that new Parazone 3SL herbicide provides efficient, fast-acting, broad-spectrum weed control on a variety of crops at a value that ultimately saves the grower money,” added Downing.
