Herbicides - GRAMOXONE

The herbicide with unique advantages

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.

At launch, GRAMOXONE ® revolutionized weed control by replacing the time-consuming chore of hand weeding. The active ingredient, paraquat, is deactivated when it reaches the 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. For more information, please visit:
