Solid Lipid Nanoparticles Co-loaded with Simazine and Atrazine: Preparation, Characterization, and Evaluation of Herbicidal Activity
(Amer Chemical Soc, 2015-01-21)
Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) containing the herbicides atrazine and simazine were prepared and characterized, and in vitro evaluation was made of the release kinetics, herbicidal activity, and cytotoxicity. The stability ...
Amicarbazone, a New Photosystem II Inhibitor
(Weed Sci Soc Amer, 2009-11-01)
Amicarbazone is a new triazolinone herbicide with a broad spectrum of weed control. The phenotypic responses of sensitive plants exposed to amicarbazone include chlorosis, Stunted growth, tissue necrosis, and death. Its ...
Performance of Postemergence Herbicides Applied at Different Carrier Volume Rates
(Weed Sci Soc Amer, 2015-07-01)
POST weed control in soybean in the United States is difficult because weed resistance to herbicides has become more prominent. Herbicide applicators have grown accustomed to low carrier volume rates that are typical with ...
Ecotoxicological Evaluation of Poly(epsilon-Caprolactone) Nanocapsules Containing Triazine Herbicides
(Amer Scientific Publishers, 2014-07-01)
The triazine class of herbicides includes the compounds ametryn, atrazine, and simazine, which are used to control weeds in plantations of crops such as maize, sorghum, and sugar cane. Despite their acceptance in agriculture, ...
Controlled release formulations of herbicides based on micro-encapsulation
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Facultad de Agronomía e Ingeniería Forestal, 2009)
FLUXOFENIM USED AS A SAFENER ON SORGHUM SEED FOR S-METOLACHLOR HERBICIDE
(Univ Federal Uberlandia, 2014-06-01)
This study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of protective fluxofenim seed treatment of sorghum hybrids DKB510 and SCG340, in order to increase the selectivity to the herbicide S-metolachlor applied pre-emergence and to ...
Chitosan/tripolyphosphate nanoparticles loaded with paraquat herbicide: An environmentally safer alternative for weed control
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-08-15)
Paraquat is a fast acting nonselective contact herbicide that is extensively used worldwide. However, the aqueous solubility and soil sorption of this compound can cause problems of toxicity in nontarget organisms. This ...
Pre-emergence herbicides affect seedling emergence of tropical forest tree species
Testing techniques to reduce weed infestation is a crucial step in developing direct tree seeding systems. The use of pre-emergence herbicides may be an alternative to manual weeding techniques, but so far, information on ...
