Zidua® WG Herbicide

No other residual herbicide can control resistant pigweed like Zidua WG herbicide. For the past several years, various small-seeded broadleaf weeds and grasses have been growing resistant to different herbicides. Zidua WG circumvents this resistance, providing growers with effective, long-lasting residual weed control.

    Benefits of Zidua® WG Herbicide

    • Strong residual control
    • Helps control resistant weeds
    • Easy to use – effective cross-spectrum tank mix partner

    How Zidua® WG Herbicide Works
    Ten years of research have culminated in the discovery of pyroxasulfone — the breakthrough active ingredient in Zidua WG. Pyroxasulfone is an isoxazoline, a new class of chemistry that delivers higher intrinsic activity and a broader spectrum of control of small-seeded broadleaf weeds and grasses.


    Zidua WG acts to inhibit very long chain fatty acid synthesis as a Group 15 (WSSA) herbicide. It is a root-and-shoot growth inhibitor that controls susceptible germinating seedlings before or soon after they emerge from the soil.


    Extensive field research demonstrates that Zidua WG provides superior residual control of resistant Palmer pigweed and waterhemp up to 10% better and up to three weeks longer than other preemergence herbicides such as dimethenamid-p, acetochlor or s-metolachlor.


    Zidua WG is the only solo product of its kind, providing growers with unmatched application flexibility from fall through early preplant and early postemergence. Quite simply, growers can determine their own schedule for using this remarkable herbicide. Effective rates are eight to 10 times lower than current commercial standards with similar use patterns.


    Zidua WG is also a perfect tank-mix partner for applications of Sharpen® herbicide, powered by Kixor® herbicide technology, for superior burndown and residual weed control.
