Activity
Herbicide

Thiazopyr can be incorporated to a shallow depth in soil prior to planting, or applied as a surface layer after planting. It is most active during germination and seedling development. The product is taken up by the roots and shoots of the plants with little or no translocation from the site of uptake. Higher application rates, sequential or combined treatments with other herbicides (for example oxyfluorfen, diuron or a triazine) are required for adequate control of broadleaf weeds. Thiazopyr has season-long residual activity on grasses. Higher application rates may result in residual activity persisting for longer than twelve months. Product applied preplant remains in the soil until activated by irrigation or rainfall. Granular formulations have formerly been used in no-till systems to avoid loss of sprayed product on foliage or "trash".

In alfalfa field trials, thiazopyr gave better or equal control of Cuscuta epithymum at lower application rates than standard. In turfgrass, it gave better control of Cyperus spp than imazaquin. Thiazopyr is safe to target crops when used pre-plant. Some transient phytotoxicity has been noted in alfalfa. An application of 506 g/ha controlled broadleaf weeds in strawberries in Oregon all summer, with no phytotoxicity or yield reductions.

Monsanto published early results of experiments to genetically modify tomato plants to be resistant to thiazopyr (Pesticide Biochem Physiol, 1998).

 Environmental fate: 
Animals:Rapidly and extensively metabolised and eliminated. Oxidised by rat liver microsomes via sulfur and carbon oxidations and via oxidative de-esterification. Bioconcentration factor in bluegill sunfish 220; rapidly eliminated, with 98% elimination within 14 Soil:In soil, degraded by both soil micro-organisms and hydrolysis. Soil dissipation studies across multiple locations in the US indicate average DT50 64 d (8-150 d). Vertical mobility was found to be minimal, with few detections belPlant:Studies in several species indicate thiazopyr is initially metabolised in the dihydrothiazole ring by plant oxygenases to the sulfoxide, sulfone, hydroxy derivative and thiazole, and is also de-esterified to the carboxylic acid;

Fate in soil:
Thiazopyr is degraded primarily by soil microbes and secondarily via soil hydrolysis. The half-life in soil ranges from 8 to 150 days. Mobility in soil is minimal.

Fate in aquatic systems:
The risk of bioaccumulation is reported to be low.

Fate in other:
Thiazopyr is stable to UV light under dry conditions.
