HistoryHerbicide reported by T. Haagsma (Down Earth, 1975, 30(4), 1). Introduced in France (1977) by Dow Chemical Co. (now Dow AgroSciences).PatentsUS 3317549ManufacturersAgriphar; Dow AgroSciences


BiochemistrySynthetic auxin (acting like indolylacetic acid).Mode of actionSelective systemic herbicide, absorbed by the leaves and roots, with translocation both acropetally and basipetally, and accumulation in meristematic tissue. Exhibits an auxin-type reaction. Acts on cell elongation and respiration.

UsesPost-emergence control of many annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds of the families Polygonaceae, Compositae, Leguminosae, and Umbelliferae, in sugar beet, fodder beet, oilseed rape, maize, brassicas, onions, leeks, strawberries, flax and grassland. Provides particularly good control of creeping thistle (Cirsium arvense), perennial sow-thistle, coltsfoot, mayweeds, and Polygonum spp.PhytotoxicityGood crop tolerance of graminaceous, cruciferous crops.Formulation typesSL.Selected tradenames:'Clio' (Agriphar); 'Cyronal' (Aventis); 'Diclopyr' (Agrimix); mixtures:'Scorpion' (+ benazolin+ dimefuron) (Aventis)
