Sunrice is a herbicide used for controlling sedges and broadleaf weeds in transplanted rice. It contains the active ingredient ethoxysulfuron, which belongs to the sulfonyl urea group of herbicides. When mixed with the grass herbicide Ricestar, Sunrice can provide total weed control in rice.

Ethoxysulfuron is absorbed by the leaves of the plants and is transported throughout the plant. It inhibits plant growth and causes chlorotic patches to form and spread. The effects of ethoxysulfuron can be seen within 3-4 weeks of application, leading to the death of the entire plant. Ethoxysulfuron works by inhibiting acetolactate synthesis.

Mode of Action :

Ethoxysulfuron is mainly taken up by the leaves and is translocated within the plant. After inhibition of plant growth, chlorotic patches develop and spread at first acropetally, then basipetally. The action of the product reaches its conclusion about 3-4 weeks after application with the death of the whole plant. Ethoxysulfuron acts by inhibition of the acetolactate.

Sunrice can be used as an early post emergence herbicide at the rate of 83.3 to 100gm/ha at 5-10 days after transplanting (DAT) of rice crop.

Ensure thorough land preparation. Drain out excess water and apply uniformly on the soil surface which should preferably be moist. Flood the field after 24 hours.
