Metolachlor 96% TC
Metolachlor is mainly absorbed and transmitted upward through the young buds of plants, i.e. the monocotyledon and the coletocotyl sheath, and the hypocotyl of dicotyledon plants. After seedling emergence, it is mainly transmitted upward by root absorption, which inhibits the growth of buds and roots.
It is a broad-spectrum post-seeding and pre-emergence herbicide. A variety of crops such as soybean, corn, cotton, peanut, potato, cabbage, spinach, garlic, sunflower, sesame, rape, radish, sugar cane, and other crops, can also be used in the orchard and other legumes, Cruciferae, Solanaceae, Asteraceae, and umbelliferous crops, can be used to prevent annual grass weeds and some dicotyledon weeds.
