Uptake and Distribution of Simazine by Oat and Cotton Seedlings

  • T. J. Sheets (a1) (a2)


For most effective weed control 2–chloro–4,6–bis(ethylamino)–s–triazine (simazine) must be applied to the soil. As a foliar spray it is much less effective. Simazine penetrates into leaves of some plants, but apparently the cuticle is a barrier to foliar absorption of this herbicide. It is absorbed rapidly by roots and is transported upward to the aerial plant parts.
