- Oxadiargyl acts as
protoporphyrinogen IX oxidase inhibitor .
- Oxadiargyl is pre-emergence
and early post-emergence herbicide active on broad-leaved weeds.
- Oxadiargyl was screened for
weed efficacy and crop safety in a range of horticultural crops in
- Globally, oxadiargyl was
developed for rice and sugar cane, however the product is also being
in sunflower, transplanted vegetables and perennial crops.
- Potential new herbicides
were screened and efficacy, crop safety and residue data was
generated. The most effective herbicides identified from this work
were pendimethalin, clomazone and oxadiargyl, which all gave best
results when applied pre crop transplanting.
- Field experiments were
conducted to evaluate the effect of thiobencarb and oxadiargyl
herbicides on rice (Oryza sativa L.) and their possible residual
effects on spinach (Spinacea oleracea L.) and lettuce (Lactuca
- Oxadiargyl (Raft®), a new
pre-emergence herbicide, has been evaluated in potato for its
eco-toxicological characteristics and for broader spectrum
weed control as objectives.
- Oxadiargyl is effective in
controlling nutsedge-the-swamp (Cyperus would) in four doses tested
and barnyardgrass (Echinochloa colonum) and male grass (Ischaemum
rugosum) the three higher doses, the Oxadiargyl caused slight
phytotoxicity to the crop when applied at the two highest doses, the
symptoms disappeared 60 days after application, depending on weed
control, Oxadiargyl significantly increases the grain yield of rice
in relation to the non- hoed.
