Such application may be in combination with the application of another herbicide such as glyphosate.

  • Patent number: 8609591
    Abstract: Many herbicidal compositions have been developed and used, but there are many types of weeds to be controlled, and their development lasts for a long period of time. Accordingly, it has been desired to develop a herbicidal composition having a wider herbicidal spectrum and having a highly active and long-lasting herbicidal activity. The present invention provides a herbicidal composition which comprises as active ingredients (a) at least one herbicidal compound selected from the group consisting of a benzoylpyrazole compound represented by the formula (I): (wherein each of R1, R2, R3, R4 and R6 is alky, and R5 is alkoxyalkoxy), sulcotrione and topramezone, and (b) amicarbazone.
