Activity
Herbicide

Sulcotrione is primarily a systemic, post-emergence herbicide. However, it also has some residual soil activity, remaining in the top layer of the soil to be activated by rainfall. Grass weeds are best controlled with early post-emergence applications. Plant death occurs within ten days of treatment. The product has shown no cross-resistance to atrazine-resistant species. Sulcotrione may be used for pre-emergence applications in flax. No visible injury or negative effects on yield have been noted.

Sulcotrione is selective to maize and sugar cane.

Fate in :

Fate in soil:
Sulcotrione is primarily degraded by microbes. The half-life in soil is typically 10-15 days in the field.

Fate in aquatic systems:
Sulcotrione degrades in water.
