Biochemistry Inhibits cell division and tissue differentiation. Chloroacetamides may inhibit synthesis of very long chain fatty acids (J. Schmalfuss et al., Abstr. Meeting WSSA, Toronto, 40, 117-118, 2000; P. Böger, Abstr. III Int. Weed Control Congr., Brazil 2000). Maize tolerance of chloroacetamides is due mainly to conjugation with glutathione; P450 metabolism may also be a factor. Mode of action Primarily a soil-applied herbicide but also can be applied post-emergence. The herbicide enters the plant via root and epicotyl uptake; there is little or no foliar activity, and little translocation in the plant. Uses Control of annual grass and broad-leaved weeds pre- or early post- emergence, in maize, soya beans, sugar beet, potatoes, dry beans, and other crops. Applied at 0.85 - 1.44 kg/ha (dimethenamid), 0.65-1.0 kg/ha (dimethanimid-P). Formulation types EC.
