Pendimethalin is a dinitroanaline herbicide used for pre-emergent control of annual grasses and broadleaf weeds. Pendimethalin inhibits cell division and cell elongation in plants.
Pendimethalin is a selective herbicide used to control most annual grasses and certain broadleaf weeds in field corn, potatoes, rice, cotton, soybeans, tobacco, peanuts and sunflowers. It is used both preemergence, that is before weed seeds have sprouted, and early postemergence. Incorporated into the soil by cultivation or irrigation is recommended within 7 days following application. Pendimethalin is available as emulsifiable concentrate, wettable powder or dispersible granule formulations.
Microtubule assembly inhibition.
Mode of action
