Metribuzin is a selective herbicide of the chemical class the triazines. Metribuzin can be applied as a foliar spray or soil treatment in order to control pre-emergence and post-emergance broadleaf weeds and annual grasses. Metribuzin also has a residual effect on the soil. Metribuzin is primarily absorbed by the roots, but also by the leaves to a lesser extent. It is translocated acropetally in the xylem to the leaves where it has its effect. The mode of action of metribuzin is that it acts by inhibiting photosystem II of photosynthesis by disrupting electron transfer. This results in death due to starvation in the target plant. Selectivity is due to differing metabolism of the compound within the plant. In the United Kingdom Metribuzin is approved for use on potatoes, both early potatoes and maincrop potatoes. Metribuzin can be combined with the soil herbicide flufenacet as well as with the broad spectrum herbicide clomazone.
