Flufentrazone is the third triketone herbicide successfully marketed by Syngenta after sulcotrione and mesotrione. It is an HPPD inhibitor, which is the fastest growing product in this class of herbicides in recent years. It is mainly used for corn, sugar beet, cereals (such as wheat, barley) and other crops to control broad-leaved weeds and some grass weeds, and has high control effect on large-seeded broad-leaved weeds such as trilobite ragweed and cocklebur. Good control effect on glyphosate-resistant weeds.
Mechanism of action
Fluoxafen belongs to the 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD) inhibitor, by inhibiting the biosynthesis of carotenoids, the plant meristem will appear albino and eventually lead to its death. The HRAC (International Herbicide Resistance Action Committee) classifies this class of herbicides as Group F2 and the WSSA (American Weed Science Society) classifies them as Group 27.
Fluoxafen?can be compounded with various herbicides such as mesotrione, isoxaflutole, oxaflutole, cyclosulfonone, and pyrasulfatole. By mixing with the safeners benoxacor or cloquintocet, fenoxafen can improve the safety of fenoxafen to crops. The selective herbicide variety has good activity against broadleaf weeds and perennial and annual weeds, and can be used in corn, wheat, barley, sugarcane and other crop fields.
Fluoxafen ?has high efficiency, low toxicity, high crop safety, is not easy to produce drug resistance, and is safe and friendly to the environment. It is expected that the product will have a good market prospect in corn fields in the future.
