Galigan Delta herbicide, a formulation of oxyfluorfen for selective broadleaf control, has been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for applications in cotton and in fallow-bed cotton or soybeans, announced Dick Farrar, marketing manager, Makhteshim-Agan of North America Inc.

“Galigan Delta offers custom applicators, consultants, farm managers and growers an economical and effective alternative for these crops,” said Farrar. “Galigan Delta is available in a 2-pound-per-gallon emulsifiable concentrate formulation in 2×2.5-gallon cases and in 30-gallon drums.”

The Galigan Delta registration covers only Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri. It may be applied aerially or by ground.

Galigan Delta can be used pre-emergence or postdirected in certain labeled situations for control of selected broadleaf weeds such as morningglory, common cocklebur, cutleaf eveningprimrose, Carolina geranium, henbit, Pennsylvania smartweed, pigweed, smallflower buttercup, hemp sesbania (coffeeweed), prickly sida (teaweed), annual bluegrass, lesser bittercress, shepherdspurse and horseweed.

“Galigan Delta expands the choices in the market for the proven and trusted oxyfluorfen chemistry, which also is relatively low in toxicity and environmental impact,” Farrar noted.
