Technical Name: Atrazine 50% WP
Mode of Action: Pre and Early Post Emergent Herbicide
Atrazine is a chlorinated triazine herbicide that is used to selectively control annual grasses and broadleaf weeds before they emerge. It is a systemic herbicide, which means that it is taken up by the roots and leaves of the plant and moves throughout the plant, killing it.
Atrazine is registered for use on several agricultural crops, including corn, sorghum, sugarcane, wheat, macadamia nuts, and guava. It is also registered for use on non-agricultural areas, such as industrial sites and turf.
Atrazine is effective against a wide range of weeds, including crabgrass, foxtail, barnyardgrass, pigweed, and johnsongrass. It is also effective against some perennial weeds, such as quackgrass and dallisgrass.
Atrazine is applied to the soil as a spray or granular application. The rate of application will vary depending on the crop being treated and the weeds present.
Atrazine is a relatively safe herbicide when used according to label directions. However, it can be harmful to fish and other aquatic organisms. It is important to avoid applying atrazine near water bodies.
- Always read and follow the label directions carefully.
- Wear protective clothing, including gloves, long sleeves, and pants, when handling atrazine.
- Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and mouth.
- Wash thoroughly with soap and water after handling atrazine.
- Dispose of atrazine and its containers properly.
