spray only before emergence of crops, otherwise crop
destruction will result. It can also be used as an
aquatic weed herbicide. It is inactive in soil. When
used in spray mixtures with herbicides such as ureas,
triazines, and others, its activity may be reduced. It
is absorbed through foliage and translocated
throughout the plant. Visible effects usually occur in
7 to 10 days. Rainfall occurring within 6 hours after
treatment reduces effectiveness. It is not absorbed
through roots. It is strongly adsorbed by soil. It is
degraded microbially. Most crops can be planted into
treated soil directly after treatment. It is corrosive to
iron and galvanized steel.
