Lagon herbicide is a non-volatile, water-soluble liquid commodity with non-selective herbicide action against early weeds (yearly and perennial broad-leaf weeds and grasses). Its formulation features a sophisticated and effective surfactant device that is tissue-safe, designed for dissolution in water and waxy materials, accelerates the absorption of a greater quantity of the active ingredient by weeds with better penetration into weed cuticles to roots.
It is an important crop protection product most especially maize and sweet corn with excellent weed control, durability and environmentally friendly attributes. It is applicable in preplant spraying systems with low volume , low pressure (emergence of first weed prior to planting).
The active ingredient in Lagon herbicide is isoxaflutole + Aclonifene (50+330 g/L) with the chemical family of Isoxazole/Diphenyl ether which is very effective in the control of weeds and other unwanted dicots.
Benefits of using Lagon Herbicide
- It regulates annual and perennial grasses, sledges and most weeds with large leaves.
- it has wide potential use in agriculture for complete weed control most especially in maize and sweet maize plantations.It is a highly effective herbicide and very easy to use.
Mode of application
Lagon herbicide should be applied after sowing to sparingly leveled damp soil. It is recommended that the substance be applied before seeds germinate.
As a reference, this is normally a maximum 3-day cycle after maize planting and a 2-day cycle for sweet maize (before seed bursting).
Preparation of solution
Load the sprinkler system with 3⁄4 of spray. Shake the bottle, and pour the appropriate dose of LAGON 575 SC. Total container filling, and mix. Moderately shake the sprayer during spraying. Using a cone jet spray nozzle to ensure the chemical is dispersed completely homogeneously (200 to 300 l / h). Do not treat to prevent the chance of drifting onto other crops under windy conditions.
It is not recommended to use Lagon on soils that contain more than 70 per cent of sand and contain less than 2 per cent organic matter. Lagon poses an increased risk of lack of selectivity or filtration on sandy soils and poorly protected seeds with sweet corn.
Lagon is completely depleted in the soil and enables absolute flexibility in the selection of the next crop.

0.5 L/Ha: (CILSS)
(Cote d’Ivoire, Cameroun, Benin, Togo)
|LAGON 380 SC should be applied to carefully leveled moist soil after sowing. It is recommended to apply the product before the seeds sprout.
As a guide, this is usually a maximum period of 3 days after planting for corn and a period of 2 days for the Sweet corn (before bursting of seeds).
Preparation of the solution
Fill the spraying equipment with water by ¾. Shake the bottle and pour the LAGON 380 SC dose required. Complete filling of the container and stir. Shake the sprayer moderately during spraying. Use a cone jet spray nozzle to ensure perfectly homogeneous distribution of the chemical (200 to 300 l / h). Do not treat under windy conditions to avoid any risk of drift onto other crops.
