Environmental fate: 
Animals:In mammals, following oral administration, 65-97% is eliminated within 24 h as the de-ethylated metabolite (Y. Deng et al., J. Agric. Food Chem., 1990, 38, 1411). Elimination of low rates is primarily in the urinSoil:Major metabolites under all conditions are desethylsimazine and hydroxysimazine. Microbial breakdown in soil results in degradation of simazine at very variable rates; DT50 27-102 d (median 49 d); temperature and soil moisture aPlant:Readily metabolised by tolerant plants to the herbicidally-inactive 6-hydroxy analogue and amino acid conjugates. The hydroxysimazine is further degraded by dealkylation of the side-chains and by hydrolysis of the resulting amino groups on the ring, with
