Atrazine Biochemistry Photosynthetic electron transport inhibitor at the photosystem II receptor site. Maize tolerance is attributed to rapid detoxification by glutathione transferases.
Atrazine Mode of action Selective systemic herbicide, absorbed principally through the roots, but also through the foliage, with translocation acropetally in the xylem and accumulation in the apical meristems and leaves.
Atrazine Uses Pre- and post-emergence control of annual broad-leaved weeds and annual grasses in maize, sorghum, sugar cane, pineapples, chemical fallow, grassland, macadamia nuts, conifers, and industrial weed control. In Europe, use is concentrated in maize and sorghum, at ≤1.5 kg/ha. Used also in combinations with many other herbicides.
Atrazine Phytotoxicity Phytotoxic to many crops, including most vegetables, potatoes, soya beans, and peanuts.
