Octane Herbicide

Provide the fuel needed for a rapid kill by adding Octane® herbicide to your current broadleaf weed control program.

Tough on weeds, gentle on the environment

With Octane, show your customers the results they want, when they want them.  Octane takes out the toughest broadleaf weeds, delivering visual results within 24 - 48 hours of application. 

Octane's active ingredient, pyraflufen-ethyl, has an in-soil half-life of less than 24 hours, ensuring rapid in-soil breakdown following application.  Octane is rain-fast within an hour, delivers outstanding results with little active ingredient per acre,  has low water solubility and low vapor pressure, reducing potential off-target movement and its effect on the environment.

A new option for silvery thread moss control
