Linex Agricultural HerbicideLINEX 4L: Weed resistance to glyphosate, triazines and other overused herbicides is an ever-increasing problem in crop production. Linex 4L is a urea herbicide that provides a different mode of action versus ALS inhibitor herbicides and a different behavior mechanism versus triazines. It controls weeds by inhibiting photosynthesis.

Linex is only registered for use on potatoes grown east of the Rocky Mountains. The product offers pre-emergence control of seedling broadleaf weeds and grasses. In addition, Linex provides burn-down control with flexible plant back restrictions. Linex provides broad-spectrum control of dozens of tough-to-control grasses and broadleaf weeds. Note that Linex should not be sprayed over top of emerged potatoes, and that total applications of Linex should not exceed three pints per acre per year.
