Biochemistry Photosynthetic electron transport inhibitor at the photosystem II receptor site. Selectivity is due to metabolism (mostly conjugation) within the plant (C. Fedtke, Proc. Br. Crop Prot. Conf. - Weeds, 1993, 1,221). Mode of action Selective systemic herbicide, absorbed predominantly by the roots, but also by the leaves, with translocation acropetally in the xylem. Uses Pre- and post-emergence control of many grasses and broad-leaved weeds in soya beans, potatoes, tomatoes, sugar cane, alfalfa, asparagus, maize and cereals, at 0.07-1.05 kg a.i./ha. Phytotoxicity Phytotoxic to many crops, including crucifers, cucurbits, lettuce, onions, sugar beet, sunflowers, flax, strawberries, sweet potatoes, and tobacco. Formulation types SC; WG; WP. Compatibility Compatible with most other herbicides, except in highly concentrated mixtures. Selected tradenames: 'Lexone' (Du Pont); 'Sencor' (Bayer); 'Mistral' (Feinchemie Schwebda); mixtures: 'Axiom' (+ flufenacet) (Bayer)

Metribuzin ANALYSIS
Product analysis by glc with FID (AOAC Methods, 1995, 984.11; CIPAC Handbook, 1988, 1D, 124) or by i.r. spectrometry (J. W. Betker et al., J. Assoc. Off. Anal. Chem., 1976, 59, 278). Residues determined by glc (C. A. Anderson, Anal. Methods Pestic. Plant Growth Regul., 1976, 8, 453). In drinking water, by gc with FID (AOAC Methods, 1995, 991.07). Details available from Bayer AG.

Animals In mammals, following oral administration, 98% elimination occurs within 96 hours, about equally in the urine and the faeces. Plants In plants, metribuzin undergoes oxidative deamination and further degradation to water-soluble conjugates. Soil/Environment Metribuzin is rapidly degraded in soil; microbial breakdown is the major mechanism of loss. Degradation involves deamination, followed by further degradation to water-soluble conjugates. Photodecomposition on soil surfaces and in aqueous solution is an important process for the degradation of metribuzin in the environment.
