Bentazon is a post-emergence herbicide used for selective control of broadleaf weeds and sedges (a weed) in beans, rice, corn, peanuts, mint, and others. Bentazon is a contact herbicide, which means that it causes injury only to the parts of the plant to which it is applied. It interferes with the ability of susceptible plants to use sunlight for photosynthesis. Visible injury to the treated leaf surface usually occurs within 4 to 8 hours, followed by plant death. It should not be used on blackeyed peas or garbanzo beans.
