Metazachlor is a residual herbicide used to control broad leaved weeds and annual grasses. It is a synthetic compound and a member of the chloroacetamide chemical family. It was first manufactured by BASF as an herbicide and is now commonly used on its own and in combination with other plant protection products, such as clomazone and quinmerac. Metazachlor is applied directly to the soil and is not suitable as an aerial spray. It can be applied to all soil types expect sand, very light soils and soils containing more than 10% organic material. The compound is absorbed through the roots of the target weeds to the growing points of the plant. Here it inhibits VLCFAs, thereby inhibiting cell division. Metazachlor can be applied to sown oilseed rape, vegetable crops such as brassicas, like Brussels sprouts, cauliflowers, cabbage, broccoli and calabrese as well turnips and Swedes. It can also be used on ornamentals, nursery stock, in forestry and on wood land.
