  • Patent number: 7741246
    Abstract: Provided is a herbicide composition which comprises a combination in a specific proportion of 2-[(4,6-dimethoxypyrimidin-2-yl)hydroxymethyl]-6-methoxymethyl-N-difluoromethanesulfonylanilide as the component (A) and either one of fifteen kinds of compounds including 4-(2-chlorophenyl)-N-cyclohexyl-N-ethyl-4,5-dihydro-5-oxo-1H-tetrazole-1-carboxamide as the component (B), none of which has been used in combination with the compound as the component (A). By an application of the herbicide composition to a paddy field in a specific dose, an excellent herbicidal effect is obtained against various kinds of weeds growing in paddy fields and the chemical damages thereof to paddy rice is extremely low.

  • Patent number: RE45048
    Abstract: The invention provides methods for weed control with dicamba and related herbicides. It was found that pre-emergent applications of dicamba at or near planting could be made without significant crop damage or yield loss. The techniques can be combined with the herbicide glyphosate to improve the degree of weed control and permit control of herbicide tolerant weeds.
