Herbicide.
Azimsulfuron is a post-emergence herbicide for the control of annual and perennial broadleaf weeds and sedges and barnyard grass (Echinochloa spp). The product is suitable for use in all rice cultivation systems. Azimsulfuron is particularly suitable for foliar application: since uptake by roots is less efficient than uptake by leaves and shoots. The product is translocated in the xylem and phloem and weeds are killed within three weeks of application. DuPont recommends applications from GS 14 to GS 21-23 of rice/1-4 leaf stage of Echinochloa. The use of surfactants enables optimum control of Echinochloa spp at the lower application rate.


The company recommend application into a very low flood (1-2 cm water) which should be maintained for 3-4 days after application.

In field trials, azimsulfuron gave similar control of Echinochloa spp to quinclorac + bensulfuron-methyl, but at much lower application rates. The reduction in application rate was even more marked by comparison with older herbicide products.

Fate in soil:
Azimsulfuron is degraded by microbial and chemical pathways in soil. Bio-accumulation in soil is not expected. The half-life in paddy soils is 11-24 days. Azimsulfuron has intermediate mobility in soil.

Fate in aquatic systems:
Azimsulfuron is degraded in water by hydrolysis and by indirect photolysis (as a result of the action of light on other constituents in paddy water). The half-life is dependent on pH and ranges from 103 days at low pH to 225 days at higher pH.
