Metamitron is a synthetic compound, of the chemical group the Triazinones. It is a herbicide, being selective and systemic in its action. Metamitron can be used on pre-emergance or post-emergance weeds. It is applied as a foliar spray, and is absorbed effectively through the leaf surface and the roots. Once absorbed it is translocated acropetally to the leaves of the target plants. The mode of action of metamitron is to disrupt photosystem II, inhibiting electron transport. Target plants are weeds of fodder beet, mangels, red beets and sugar beets. These include grasses and broad-leaved weeds. Metamitron can be used on its own, or in various combinations with other common sugar beet protection products, namely desmedipham, ethofumesate and phenmedipham.
