Paraquat was first manufactured in 1962, and since then, it has become one of the most popular herbicides in the country and worldwide.

It is worth of note that paraquat can also be found in products with other herbicides, such as diquat, simazine, linuron, metolachlor, and urea herbicides. For instance, Pathclear contains paraquat, diquat, simazine, and amitrole, which makes it highly toxic and dangerous.
