Formulation: Trifluralin 48%EC 95%TC
Trifluralin is a selective, pre-sowing or pre-emergence herbicide used to control many
annual grasses and broadleaf weeds in a large variety of arable and horticultural crops.
One of the dinitroanaline herbicides, trifluralin prevents weed growth by inhibiting root
development through the interruption of mitosis – early developmental cell division.
Trifluralin is applied as a soil-incorporated pesticide, though there are also some surface uses.
Pre-emergence control of many annual grasses and broad-leaved weeds in brassicas, beans, peas, carrots, parsnips, lettuce, capsicums, tomatoes, artichokes, onions, garlic, vines, strawberries, raspberries, citrus fruit, oilseed rape, peanuts, soya beans, sunflowers, safflowers, ornamentals, cotton, sugar beet, sugar cane, and in forestry. Used with linuron or isoproturon for control of annual grasses and broad-leaved weeds in winter cereals. Normally applied pre-planting with soil incorporation, at 0.5-1.0 kg/ha, but post-planting application is also possible for some crops.
