Alion

Overview

Alion®, a Group 29 pre-emergent herbicide is anything but exciting to watch. Why? Because you’ll never actually see it do anything – and that’s the point. Spray it in your orchard and vineyard for season-long control of annual grassy and broadleaf weeds. Not to mention glyphosate, triazine and ALS-resistant weeds, too. It’s literally as exciting as dirt. Until you see the results.

Application Tips

Overview



  • Group 29 herbicide
  • Provides excellent long-term residual control
  • Provides pre-emergent control for a broad spectrum of weeds. If emerged weeds are present at the time of application, tank mix Alion™ with a contact herbicide.
  • Controls annual grassy and broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate, triazine and ALS resistant weeds
  • Is an excellent resistance management tool
  • Has a low dose rate
  • Alion prevents weeds from emerging by inhibiting the growth of the developing radicle (early root) in the seed germination zone
  • Needs only 1/4 inch of rain to activate
