Biochemistry Photosynthetic electron transport inhibitor at the photosystem II receptor site. Mode of action Selective contact herbicide, absorbed mainly by the foliage, with very little translocation, but also absorbed by the roots, with translocation acropetally in the xylem. Uses A contact herbicide controlling Anthemis, Chamomilla and Matricaria spp., Chrysanthemum segetum, Galium aparine, Lapsana communis and Stellaria media in winter and spring cereals, at 1.0-2.2 kg/ha. Other crops include peanuts, maize, peas, Phaseolus beans, rice (Cyperus difformis, C. esculentus, C. serotinus, Monochoria vaginalis, Sagittaria pygmaea, S. sagittifolia, Alisma and Commelina spp., Scirpus maritimus and S. mucronatus) and soya beans (Abutilon theophrasti, Capsella bursa-pastoris, Cyperus esculentus, Datura stramonium, Helianthus spp., Polygonum spp., Portulaca spp., Sida spinosa, Ambrosia spp., Sinapis arvensis and Xanthium spp.).

Animals Metabolism studies in three different species showed that bentazone was only poorly metabolised, the parent compound being the predominant product. Only small amounts of hydroxylated bentazone metabolites could be detected. No conjugated products were found. Plants In plants, rapidly metabolised to derivatives of anthranilic acid, the principal metabolites being the 6- and 8-hydroxy derivatives, which are conjugated to sugars, forming glycosides. Soil/Environment In soil, short-lived hydroxy compounds are first formed, which rapidly undergo further degradation (R. Huber & S. Otto in Rev. Environ. Contam. Toxicol., 137, 111-134). In sunlight, bentazone undergoes rapid degradation, ultimately to CO2. It has low soil persistence: in freshly collected field soils, aerobic DT50 (lab., 20 ºC) was 14 d. In lab. degradation studies, with soils of proven biological activity, DT50 (average) was 17.8 d; DT50 (field, average) was c. 12 d; corresponding DT90 was 44 d. Koc 13.3-176 ml/g (average 42 ml/g), indicating mobility. However, when used according to good agricultural practice, bentazone is degraded more quickly than it can leach; in all lysimeter studies, average annual leachates contained <0.1 mg/l.
