Fluroxypyr(CAS No.69377-81-7) is applied as fluroxypyr-meptyl. After predominantly foliar uptake, the ester is hydrolysed to the parent acid, which is the herbicidally active form, and translocated rapidly to other parts of the plants. Acts by inducing characteristic auxin-type responses, e.g. leaf curling.
Fluroxypyr Useage Fluroxypyr is effective by post-emergence foliar application, controlling a range of economically important broad-leaved weeds (including Galium aparine and Kochia spp.) in all small grain crops, and Rumex spp. and Urtica dioica in pastures. Directed applications are used against herbaceous and woody broad-leaved weeds in orchards (apple only) and plantation crops (rubber and oilpalm),and broad-leaved brush spp. in conifer forests. Post-emergence, broadcast applications of fluroxypyr in maizeup to the 6-leaf stage of the crop are used for control of Calystegia sepium, Convolvulus arvensis and Solanum nigrum. The meptyl and 2-butoxy-1-methylethyl esters have similar activity, the advantage of the latter being the wider range of formulation options that are available. Applied at 180-400 g a.e./ha.
Fluroxypyr Phytotoxicity Non-phytotoxic to the crops for which its use is recommended.
