Stability: insoluble in water, soluble in most organic solvents. Stable at pH 4, hydrolysed slowly at pH 7.
Mode of Action:
Post-emergence herbicide with foliar uptake only and no soil activity. A systemic herbicide that is readily absorbed by plant tissue, is moderately phloem-mobile and accumulates in meristematic regions. Grass weeds cease growth immediately after treatment, with yellow patches appearing within 2–3 days to one week, leading to necrosis and death of the whole plant within 2 to 3 weeks.
