  • Alachlor is an herbicide from the chloroacetanilide family. Its mode of action is elongase inhibition, and inhibition of geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate (GGPP) cyclisation enzymes, part of the gibberellin pathway.
  • Alachlor is a solid, white and odorless herbicide used to control weeds and other plants.
  • Alachlor is usually sold under the trade name “Lasso,” but other names include “Chimiclor,” “Alanox,” and “Pilarzo.”
  • It is marketed under the trade names Alanex, Bronco, Cannon, Crop Star, Intrro, Lariat, Lasso, Micro-Tech, and Partner
  • Alachlor is used to control annual grasses and broadleaf weeds growing among corn, sorghum, soybeans and
    other crops.
  • Alachlor is the second most used herbicide in the United States. Heavy use occurs in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio
    and Wisconsin.
  • It is most commonly available as microgranules containing 15% a.i., or emulsifiable concentrate containing 480 g/ litre of a.i. Homologuation in Europe requires a maximum dose of 2,400 g per hectare of a.i., or 5 litres/hectare of emulsifiable concentrate or 17 kg/ha of microgranules.
  • The major source of environmental release of alachlor is through its manufacture and use as a herbicide.
  • Alachlor is a selective systemic herbicide, absorbed by germinating shoots and by roots, for annual broadleaf control in crops such as beans, beets, cabbage, corn, cotton, ornamentals, peanuts, peas, potatoes, sorghum, soybeans, sugarcane, sunflowers, and tobacco. Selective systemic herbicide for control of most annual grasses and many broad leaved weeds in maize, sorghum, groundnuts, soya beans, lima beans, oilseed rape, brassicas, radish, oil radish, cotton, sunflowers, sugar cane, potatoes, peas, tobacco, some ornamentals.
