Q. Paraquat seems to be a rather old active ingredient in plant protection products. Why is it still on the market?
A. Amazingly, in over 40 years of research, no other herbicide has been found which offers the same unique benefits of paraquat. Therefore, there is no effective alternative to paraquat. As a result, demand for paraquat continues to be driven by farmers who recognize the unique benefits of paraquat’s rapid, contact action, rainfastness and excellent efficacy.
