Title (EN) FATTY ACID BASED HERBICIDAL COMPOSITIONS
(FR) COMPOSITIONS HERBICIDES A BASE D'ACIDE GRAS
Abstract:
(EN) An environmentally compatible herbicidal composition comprises a fatty acid active ingredient, and a surfactant component. In one embodiment the composition comprises a ready-to-use microemulsion having a fatty acid active ingredient, one or more quaternary ammonium salt surfactants and water. Another embodiment comprises a concentrated herbicidal formulation having a fatty acid active ingredient and one or more surfactants. The concentrate may subsequently be diluted with water to yield a ready-to-use formulation. Each of these compositions is a foliar applied herbicide which effectively controls a variety of unwanted weed and grass species. The fatty acid component of these herbicidal compositions comprises pelargonic acid which may be used alone or as the predominant component of a mixture of fatty acids including caprylic, pelargonic, capric, undecanoic, and lauric.
(FR) Une composition herbicide compatible avec l'environnement comprend un ingrédient actif d'acide gras, et un composant tensio-actif. Dans une version, la composition comprend une micro-émulsion prête à l'emploi ayant un ingrédient actif d'acide gras, un ou plusieurs tensio-actifs de sel d'amonium quaternaire et de l'eau. Une autre version comprend une formule d'herbicide concentré ayant un ingrédient actif d'acide gras et un ou plusieurs tensio-actifs. Le concentré peut dont être ensuite dilué avec de l'eau pour donner une formule prête à l'emploi. Chacune de ces compositions est un herbicide appliqué au feuillage, qui régule de manière efficace une variété de graines et d'espèces d'herbes non désirées. Le composant acide gras de ces compositions herbicides comprend un acide pélargonique que l'on peut utiliser seul ou comme composant principal dans un mélange d'acides gras comprenant de l'acide octylique, pélargonique, caprique, undecanoïque et laurique.
