Biochemistry Photosynthetic electron transport inhibitor at the photosystem II receptor site. Maize tolerance of triazines is attributed to conjugation with glutathione. Mode of action Selective systemic herbicide, absorbed principally through the roots, but also through the foliage, with translocation acropetally in the xylem, accumulating in the apical meristems and leaves. Uses Control of most germinating annual grasses and broad-leaved weeds in pome fruit, stone fruit, bush and cane fruit, citrus fruit, vines, strawberries, nuts, olives, pineapples, field beans, french beans, peas, maize, sweet corn, asparagus, hops, alfalfa, lupins, oilseed rape, artichokes, sugar cane, cocoa, coffee, rubber, oil palms, tea, turf and ornamentals. Applied at rates up to 1.5 kg/ha within the EU, and up to 2-3 kg/ha in perennial crops in the tropics and subtropics. Phytotoxicity Phytotoxic to a number of crops, including sugar beet, tobacco, tomatoes, cucurbits, clover, rice, soya beans, lettuce, oats, and many vegetables (e.g. spinach, onions, carrots, crucifers, etc.).

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 urine of rats, with a shift to faecal elimination at high doses. Excretion is rapid (c. 90% in 48 h). Degradation to desethylsimazine and bis-desethylsimazine (diaminochlorotriazine) is the primary metabolic pathway. Plants 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 evolution of CO2. In sensitive plants, unaltered simazine leads to chlorosis and death. Soil/Environment 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 are the main factors affecting rates. Koc 103-277 (median 160); Kd 0.37-4.66 (12 soils). Under field conditions, simazine has a low leaching potential. Loss by direct photodecomposition is insignificant. Indirect photodecomposition in the presence of photosensitisers such as humic acids is, however, likely.
