Paraquat is a deadly chemical that is extensively used as an herbicide (plant killer), primarily for weed and grass control. “In the United States, paraquat is available primarily as a liquid in various strengths. The US Environmental Protection Agency classifies paraquat as “restricted use.” This means that it can be used only by people who are licensed applicators.” CDC | Facts about Paraquat. (2021).
