Diuron 80DF is a dispersible granule herbicide to be mixed with water and applied as a spray
for selective control of weeds in certain crops and for non-selective weed control on noncropland
areas. It is non-corrosive to equipment, non-flammable, and non-volatile.
Diuron 80DF may be applied to soil prior to emergence of weeds to control susceptible
weed seedlings for an extended period of time. The degree of control and duration of
effect of this weed killer will vary with the amount of chemical applied, soil texture, rainfall, and other conditions.
Soils high in clay or organic matter require higher dosages than soils low in clay or
organic matter for equivalent herbicide performance. Moisture is required to activate the herbicide.
Best results occur if rainfall (or sprinkler irrigation) occurs within 2 weeks of
Diuron 80DF applied before emergence of crop and weeds is an effective procedure
because susceptible weeds are controlled in an early, vulnerable seedling stage before they
compete with the crop. With favorable moisture conditions, Alligare Diuron 80DF continues
to control weeds for some time as the crop becomes better able to compete. Should weed
seedlings begin to break through the preemergence treatment in significant numbers, secondary
weed control procedures should be implemented; these include cultivation and
postemergence herbicide application.
Diuron 80DF may also be used to control emerged weeds. Results vary with rate
applied and environmental conditions. Best results are obtained on succulent weeds growing
under conditions of high humidity and temperature of 70°F or higher. Addition of a
surfactant to the spray (where recommended) increases contact effects of Alligare Diuron
Diuron 80DF may be used as a directed postemergence application. Contact of crop
foliage and/or fruit with spray or mist must be avoided on the following crops: artichoke, corn
(field), cotton, sorghum (grain), sugarcane, and established plantings of apples, bananas,
plantains, blueberries, caneberries, gooseberries, citrus, grapes, macadamia nuts, olives,
papayas, peaches, pears, pecans, walnuts, and certain tree plantings as injury may occur.
