Toxicity of Simazine to Seedling Oat Plants

  • T. J. Sheets (a1)


In a preliminary experiment young oat plants which grew in culture solution containing 0.05 ppmw of 2–chloro–4,6–bis (ethylamino)–s–triazine (simazine) for 60 hours were injured but not killed. The objective of the experiment reported here was to study the relations among (a) the concentration of simazine in the culture solution, (b) the concentration of simazine in the oat plant, and (c) the reduction in weight of plants following treatment.
