Fenoxaprop-p-ethyl Biochemistry Fatty acid synthesis inhibition in grasses, by inhibition of acetyl CoA carboxylase (ACCase). Rapidly hydrolysed in plants to the acid, which is still herbicidally active.
Fenoxaprop-p-ethyl Mode of action Fenoxaprop-P-ethyl is a selective herbicide with contact and systemic action, absorbed principally by the leaves, with translocation both acropetally and basipetally to the roots or rhizomes.
Fenoxaprop-p-ethyl Uses Post-emergence control of annual and perennial grass weeds in potatoes, beans, soya beans, beets, vegetables, peanuts, flax, oilseed rape and cotton; and (when applied with the herbicide safener mefenpyr-diethyl) annual and perennial grass weeds and wild oats in wheat, rye, triticale and, depending on ratio, in some varieties of barley. Applied at 40-90 g/ha in cereals (max. 83 g/ha in EU) and at 30-140 g/ha in broad-leaved crops. Phytotoxicity Non-phytotoxic to broad-leaved crops.
