What Is Isoxaben?

Isoxaben (Chemical Name: N-[3-(1-ethyl-1-methylpropyl)-1,2-oxazol-5-yl]-2,6-dimethoxybenzamide) is a benzamizole herbicide with broad spectrum pre-emergent activity for broadleaf weeds, grasses, vines, for use around ornamental trees and shrubs.  Isoxaben was registered by and manufactured by Dow AgroSciences LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company. 

Isoxaben offers selective, pre-emergence control of susceptible broadleaf weeds in established turf, ornamentals, nursery stock, non-bearing fruit trees, bearing and non-bearing nut trees, bearing and non-bearing grapevines, Christmas tree plantations, and non-cropland areas. In Western European countries, isoxaben is registered for use in cereals, bearing and nonbearing fruit trees, and vines.

Isoxaben is a white to off-white solid with a musty odor that is formulated into water-dispersible powders and granules or liquid concentrates. Formulated isoxaben products contain 0.25–75% active ingredient, with the balance solvents and stabilizers. 

How Does Isoxaben Work?

Isoxaben disrupts an enzyme (found only in plants) necessary for protein synthesis. The mode of action for isoxaben in plants is a cellulose biosynthesis inhibitor (CBI). This mode of action inhibits cellulose biosynthesis (cell growth) in the cell walls of susceptible weeds, inhibiting the germination and growth of susceptible weeds

Prolonged skin contact may cause slight irritation with local redness. Prolonged, excessive inhalation of product dust may cause adverse effects. Isoxaben has very low toxicity if swallowed.


Isoxaben is highly toxic to aquatic organisms on an acute basis but practically nontoxic to birds and bees. It is not expected to accumulate in the food chain (low bioconcentration potential). It has moderate persistence in soil under field conditions. Isoxaben would be removed by common wastewater-treatment processes.


It is recommended that when handling Isoxaben (or any of the other chemicals we carry) to use proper personal protective equipment (PPE) before handling or applying. Gloves, goggles, long sleeved clothing should be the minimum standard. Please refer to the label for proper safety instructions.
