History Herbicide reported by R. Y. Yih & C. Swithenbank (J. Agric. Food Chem., 1975, 23, 592). Introduced by Rohm & Haas Co. (now Dow AgroSciences) and first marketed in 1976. Patents US 3798276 Manufacturers Dow AgroSciences; Makhteshim-Agan; Sannong

Biochemistry Protoporphyrinogen oxidase inhibitor. Mode of action Selective contact herbicide, absorbed more readily by the foliage (and especially the shoots) than by the roots, with very little translocation. Uses Control of annual broad-leaved weeds and grasses in a variety of tropical and subtropical crops, by pre- or post-emergence application at rates in the range 0.25-2.0 kg/ha. Particular crops include tree fruit (including citrus), vines, nuts, cereals, maize, soya beans, peanuts, rice, cotton, bananas, peppermint, onions, garlic, ornamental trees and shrubs, and conifer seedbeds. Phytotoxicity Soya beans and cotton may be injured by contact with oxyfluorfen. Formulation types EC; GR. Selected products: 'Goal' (Dow AgroSciences); 'Galigan' (Makhteshim-Agan); 'Hadaf' (Vapco)
