BUTAFORCE (Systemic Pre-emergence Herbicide)
Butachlor selective systemic herbicide, absorbed primarily by the germinating shoots, and secondarily by the roots, with translocation throughout the plant, giving higher concentrations in vegetative parts than in reproductive parts. Used pre-emergence for the control of annual grasses and certain broad-leaved weeds in rice, both seeded and transplanted. It shows selectivity in barley, cotton, peanuts, sugar beet, wheat and several brassica crops. Activity is dependent on water availability such as rainfall following treatment, overhead irrigation or applications to standing water as in rice culture.
Butaforce is a herbicide of the chloroacetanilide class. It is used as a selective pre-emergent herbicide. It is extensively used in the form of granules in rice as post emergence herbicide.
