Atrazin 50 % wp Herbicide
Mode of action: Atrazine 50 % WP inhibits photosynthesis by binding to the QB-binding niche on the D1 protein of the photosystem II complex in chloroplast thylakoid membranes. Herbicide binding at this protein location blocks electron transport from QA to QB and stops CO2 fixation and production of ATP and NADPH2 which are all needed for plant growth.
Recommendation : Atrazine 50 % WP is use in maize, sugarcane, potato, bajra etc for weed control. It controls Trianthama monogyna, Digera arvensis, Echinochloa spp., Eleusine spp., Xanthium strumarium, Brachiaria sp, Digitaria sp, Amaranthus viridis, Cleome viscosa, Polygonum spp. in maize and Portulaca oleracia, Digitaria, Boerhaavia diffusa, Ephorbia, Tribulus terrestris in sgarcane.
