Flufenacet and isoxaflutole

Flufenacet is a synthetic compound of the oxyacetamide family of chemicals used as an herbicide. Flufenacet is specifically a soil herbicide, acting pre-emergence. Isoxaflutole is a synthetic compound of the isoxazole group of chemicals used as an herbicide.

Flufenacet is a synthetic compound of the oxyacetamide family of chemicals used as an herbicide.  Flufenacet is specifically a soil herbicide, acting pre-emergence. Flufenacet  is selective in its action, taget weeds being annual grasses.  Flufenacet affects cell membranes of meristematic tissues in these grass species, interfering with both membrane selectivity and permeability. This prevents cell division, therefore preventing unwanted grass species from growing.

 

Isoxaflutole is a synthetic compound of the isoxazole group of chemicals used as an herbicide. Isoxaflutole is specifically a soil herbicide, acting pre-emergence. Isoxaflutole is a broad spectrum herbicide, acting on a wide range of annual grasses and broadleaf weeds. The mode of action of isoxaflutole is the inhibition of the enzyme 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD), thereby inhibiting pigment formation, and causing bleaching of the developing tissues of the target plants.  Isoxaflutole is systemic in its activity, being absorbed roots and leaves.

 

Flufenacet and Isoxaflutole are most effectively applied in combination, reducing competitive weeds at the beginning of the growth season, and giving highly effective control of broad-leaved weeds and grass-weeds.  Both compounds have a high residual effect in the soil.  Flucenacet and isoxaflutole are approved for use on grain maize and forage maize.
