It is sprayed or spread dry as granules on the soil
surface, preferably just before or during active
growth period of weeds. It is readily absorbed
through roots. It inhibits photosynthesis. Bromacil is
less subject to adsorption on soil colloids than many
other herbicides. It leaches slowly, and, at soil
sterilant rates, it persists for more than 1 year.
