  • Metolachlor is an organic compound that is widely used as a herbicide.It is a derivative of aniline and is a member of the chloroacetanilide herbicides.

  • It is used for grass and broadleaf weed control in corn, soybean, peanuts, sorghum, and cotton. It is also used in combination with other herbicides.

  • Trade names for products containing metolachlor include Bicep, CGA-24705, Dual, Pennant, and Pimagram.

  • The compound may be used in formulations with other pesticides (often herbicides that control broad-leaved weeds) including atrazine, cyanazine, and fluometuron.

  • Metolachlor is a colorless to tan, odorless liquid applied as an emulsion on crops.

  • Metolachlor is a preemergence (applied before crop sprout) herbicide that controls most annual grasses and many weeds in beans, chickpeas, corn, cotton.

  • It is absorbed by plants and inhibits plant protein synthesis.

  • Metolachlor is one of the top 5 pesticides detected in surface waters in the corn belt (US EPA).

  • Metolachlor has a soil half-life of a few weeks to three months and is degraded microbiologically and photochemically to at least five different products.

  • Metolachlor or its degradates can leach from soils and have been detected in watersheds of agricultural land, in both ground and surface waters.

  • In soil, metolachlor is transformed to its metabolites primarily by biodegradation.

  • Biodegradation will be the major process by which metolachlor will be lost from most soils . Although metolachlor degraded in a soil with a half-life of 56 days, only approximately 5% of the compound mineralized to carbon dioxide in 84 days . Some loss of metolachlor from soil surface will occur as a result of photolysis by sunlight .

  • Metolachlor is a slightly toxic compound in EPA toxicity class III.

  • Metolachlor is highly persistent in water over a wide range of water acidity. Its half-life at 20 C is more than 200 days in highly acid waters, and is 97 days in highly basic waters. Metolachlor is also relatively stable in water under natural sunlight.

  • Products containing metolachlor herbicides have the potential to leach through soil into ground water under  certain condition as a result of agricultural use.

  • Metolachlor is a growth inhibitor affecting root and shoot growth after seeds have germinated.
