Indaziflam Crop Safety Summary from IR-4

4 Mar

It’s an herbicide, by the way.

In 2011 IR-4 has completed 18 trials evaluating Indaziflam 0.03% for crop safety on 12 crops. The data contained in this report was generated to register the use of indaziflam on and around ornamental horticulture plants with over-the-top applications. The rates tested were 0.045, 0.089 and 0.178 pounds active ingredient per acre (lb ai per A) as the 1X, 2X and 4X rates. The indaziflam 0.03%G formulation was applied to 16 plant genera or species. Of these crops, 2 exhibited no or minimal transient injury after application at all three rates including Rhododendron sp. and Rosa sp. The remaining crops evaluated exhibited little to no injury in two or less trials. Further testing is required on these species before a conclusion can be made confirming crop safety.

As always read and follow all label directions
