Utility :

2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% is Sodium salt of 2,4-Dichlorophenoxy Acetic Acid and is fully soluble in water and is packed in 25 Kg/10Kg HDPE Bags and 500g cartons.

Type of Weeds Controlled :

2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% effectively controls all broad leaf (Dicot) type weeds and creepers.

Use for Tea Plantations :

2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% controls MIKANIA wonderfully. It also kills Bagracote

effectively and all other broad leaf type weeds and creepers. Mikania is a very hazardous problem in Tea Plantations which climbs and covers tea plants, bamboo bari, wire fencing, drains, shade trees etc. At the time of labour shortage. 2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% kills Mikania thoroughly, while no damage is done to tea plants and bamboo bari when recommended dose is applied (1 part

2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% into 200 parts of water).

In newly planted tea where no other weedicides are effective, 2,4-D Sodium Salt 80%, when sprayed on broad leaf weeds, controls weeds most effectively.

In mature tea it controls all broad leaf weeds, except thatch, at the same dose.

We recommend a sticking agent @ 120 cc per 200 litres of water. SANDOVIT or TRITON A.E. are considered as a most suitable sticking agent.

Use for Paddy Fields :

2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% controls all broad leaf type weeds in growing paddy when it comes in contact with the undesirable weeds.

Use in Thatch Bari :

After about one month of burning the thatch bari, broad leaf weeds start competing with new thatch, 2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% controls the weeds effectively and thus maximum production of thatch is ensured in minimum area. 

Use in Sugarcane and Orchards :

Dicot type weeds are a big problem in sugarcane fields and orchards and other crops like potato etc. 2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% controls them most effectively.

Time of Application :

2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% can be applied throughout the year, but its concentration, when weeds are soft and succulent, can be lighter and when weeds are hard, its concentration will have to be stronger.

Age of Weeds :

Though at higher dose 2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% will kill even mature broad leaf weeds, it will kill very effectively with recommended doses when the weeds and creepers are young and tender. In paddy fields the weeds should be only 2 inches to 3 inches high for most effective control.

Recommended Dose for Application :

When used on young and tender weeds 1 Kg. of 2,4-D Sodium Salt 80% should be mixed with 100 litres to 200 litres of water depending on the type of weeds which is required to be killed.

Normally, 1 Kg. 2,4-D Sodium Salt 80%, if sprayed properly on one hectare, should kill the weeds. The spray must come in full contact of the weeds and creepers in paddy fields for effective control. A higher dose may be required if the weeds are mature and old.

Type of Spraying Equipment Recommended :

Normally hand operated pressure type knapsack sprayers are preferred, but on bamboo baris or other places where drift is no problem, power sprayer can be used. 

Hazard to Workers :

Protective measures should be adopted as per rules of the local Government to handle the product safely.
