Orange Crystal Solids / Agricultural herbicides / Granular
Pendimethalin is an aniline herbicide, is soluble in organic solvents such as acetone, methanol and
xylene.It is an excellent selective herbicide for upland crops,
which can be widely used in weeding corn, soybean, peanut, cotton,
direct seeding upland rice, potato, tobacco, vegetable and other
crops.At present, dimevaline is the third largest herbicide in the world,
second only to desiccant herbicide glyphosate and paraquat, and the
largest selective herbicide in the world.
Can be widely used in corn, soybean, peanut, cotton, live dry rice,
potato, tobacco, vegetables and other crops field weeding.

Handling And Storage
Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and
aerosols. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before
use.Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is
formed. For precautions see section 2.2.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store above 40 deg F. Extended storage at temperatures less than 40
deg F can result in the formation of crystals on the bottom of the
container. If crystallization does occur, store the container on
its side at room temperature (70 deg F) and rock occasionally until
crystals redissolve. Do not store near food or feed products.
