Adama Agil is a selective, post-emergence herbicide that is used to control annual grasses in a wide range of crops. It is formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate (EC) and is applied to the leaves of the weeds.
Agil Herbicide contains 10% w/w of the active ingredient propaquizafop. Propaquizafop is a member of the aryloxyphenoxy propionates (AOPP) family of herbicides. It works by inhibiting the plant enzyme acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACCase). ACCase is essential for the production of fatty acids, so when it is inhibited, the plant is unable to grow and eventually dies.
Mode of Action
Agil Herbicide is absorbed by the leaves of the weeds and then transported throughout the plant. It accumulates in the meristem, which is the growing point of the plant. Once it reaches the meristem, propaquizafop inhibits ACCase, which prevents the plant from producing fatty acids. This leads to the death of the plant.
- Selective: Agil is selective for a wide range of crops, including sugarbeet, oilseed rape, soybeans, sunflower, other field crops, vegetables, fruit trees, vineyards, and forestry.
- Effective: It is effective against a wide range of annual grasses, including barnyardgrass, crabgrass, foxtail, and goosegrass.
- Long-lasting: It has a long residual activity, so it can provide control of weeds for up to 30 days.
- Easy to use: Agil is easy to use and can be applied with a variety of sprayers.
- Increased crop yield: Agil can help to increase crop yield by controlling weeds that compete with the crop for water, nutrients, and sunlight.
- Reduced weed control costs: It can help to reduce weed control costs by reducing the need for manual weeding.
- Improved crop quality: It can help to improve crop quality by reducing the incidence of diseases and pests that are transmitted by weeds.
The recommended dosage of Agil varies depending on the crop and the weed pressure. For sugarbeet, the recommended dosage is 1.0-1.5 liters per hectare. For oilseed rape, the recommended dosage is 0.75-1.0 liters per hectare. For soybeans, the recommended dosage is 1.0-1.5 liters per hectare.
