Clomazone 95% TC
Clomazone is a pigment-inhibiting pre-budding herbicide that inhibits the production of chlorophyll and chlorophyll-protecting pigments in plants, resulting in short-term plant death.
However, when it is absorbed by soybean, the effective grass-killing property of clomazone will be changed into a degradation product without grass-killing ability through metabolism, so that soybean plants can avoid the harm of clomazone. Clomazone is mainly used to control broadleaf weeds and gramineous weeds. Besides soybean fields, it can also be used to weed cotton, cassava, corn, rape, sugarcane, and tobacco fields.
