  • Patent number: 10492490
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to adjuvant compositions and related methods for reducing herbicide volatility. The adjuvant- and herbicide-containing herbicide compositions are generally aqueous and include a volatile growth regulator herbicide and a monosaccharide adjuvant. When the compositions are applied to a target area to control a herbicide-sensitive target plant in the area with the herbicide, the monosaccharide adjuvant reduces volatile transport of the herbicide, thus reducing damage to other (non-target) sensitive plants, whether inside or outside of the target area of application.

  • Patent number: 8822381
    Abstract: There is a need for a selective, low-risk herbicide that can be used to control weeds in cereal cultures and turf. The present invention discloses that a bacterial secondary metabolite, thaxtomin and optionally another herbicide is an effective herbicide on broadleaved, sedge and grass weeds. Thaxtomin A and structurally similar compounds can be used as natural herbicides to control the germination and growth of weeds in cereal, turf grass, Timothy grass and pasture grass cultures with no phytotoxicity to these crops. As a natural, non-toxic compound, thaxtomin can be used as a safe alternative for weed control in both conventional and organic farming and gardening systems.
