Mode of Action
Linuron is a foliar absorbed and residual herbicide that is active on weeds present at application by absorption through the foliage and subsequent germination of weeds through root absorption.
Linuron Inhibits photosynthesis by blocking the action of photosystem II, through blocking the transfer of high-energy electrons needed by the plant to convert water and carbon dioxide to oxygen gas and sugars
For best results, Linuron should be applied to a well cultivated, weed-free surface which is free of trash and clods.
