other name: [(3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridyl)oxy]acetic acid
CAS No.: [ 55335-06-3 ]
Molecular Formula: C7H4Cl3NO3
Triclopyr, a pyridine, is a selective systemic herbicide used for control of woody and broadleaf plants along rights-of-way, in forests, on industrial lands and on grasslands. it is also combine the function of fungicide as it can control rust diseases on crops very well.
Triclopyr is specifically effective on woody plants. Triclopyr is mainly used to control brush land on right-of-way land, railway lines, pipelines, electrical power line ways, in forestry areas, industrial land, park land, road sides and motorway verges. It can also be used to defoliate wood lands.
Synthetic auxin (acting like indolylacetic acid).
Mode of action
Selective systemic herbicide, rapidly absorbed by the foliage and roots, with translocation throughout the plant, accumulating in meristematic tissue. Induces auxin-type responses in susceptible species (mainly broad-leaved weeds, grass weeds being unaffected at normal application rates).
Control of woody plants and many broad-leaved weeds (e.g. nettles, docks, brambles, gorse, broom) in grassland, uncultivated land, industrial areas, coniferous forests, plantation crops, and rice fields. In plantation crops (oil palm, rubber) at 125-250 g a.e./ha for covercrop maintenance, and at 0.72-1.0 kg a.e./ha to control Eupatorium odoratum and other problem plants; in pastures at 1-2 kg/ha to control annual and perennial herbaceous weeds, and at 2-4 kg/ha against Rubus spp. and other woody plants; in forestry at 4-8 kg/ha for site preparation, and at 1.5-2.0 kg/ha for conifer release; for industrial sites at 2-8 kg/ha; in rangeland at 0.24-1.0 kg/ha.
Phytotoxicity Clovers are sensitive, as also are larch, lodgepole pine, ornamentals, and edible crops.
