General Instructions


Basagran M60 herbicide is a selective post-emergent herbicide for the control of certain broadleaf weeds in Rice. It is a combination of bentazone and MCPA. As a foliar herbicide, good coverage is essential. Application should be made to fully exposed weeds, prior to flowering. Best results will be achieved when application is made to actively growing young weeds.




DO NOT apply if rain is expected within 8 hours. 


Withholding Periods 







Thorough coverage of weed foliage is essential. 


Ground Application:Apply by vehicle mounted boom, calibrated to deliver a minimum 100 L/ha. 


Aerial Application:Apply with aircraft fitted with conventional flat fan or hollow cone nozzles, calibrated to deliver a minimum volume of 40 L/ha. DO NOTapply under hot, dry conditions which could adversely affect spray deposition on the target weeds.




This product mixes readily with water. Half fill the spray tank with water and with agitation running, add the required amount of Basagran M60 herbicide. Allow product to mix before adding any MCPA 250 and/or the remainder of the water.




This product is compatible with Londax^ DF herbicide and MCPA 250 (sodium or sodium/potassium salt only).

Protection of Crops, Native and other Non-Target Plants

If not recycling, break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local authority landfill.
