The chemical name of herbicide metolachlor is (RS)-2-Chloro-N-(2-ethyl-6-methyl-phenyl)-N-(1-methoxypropan-2-yl)acetamide. Also called dual, it is a kind of amide chemical. Absorbed by bud and transported upwards, this product can inhibit not only growth of shoots and roots but also protein synthesis of germination seeds, as well as lecithin formation through interfering with choline penetrating phospholipid. It has better effect in grass weeds because they can absorb this product more efficiently than broadleaf weeds. For application, this product can be used for weed control of many crops, including corn, cotton, cabbage, spinach, nightshade vegetables and orchards.

Herbicide metolachlor is low toxic and acute percutaneous LD50 of original drug for rats is bigger than 3170mg/kg. Besides that, there is a slight stimulating effect on the rabbits' skin but rather eyes. Under experimental conditions, no teratogenic, mutagenic or carcinogenic effects on animals are discovered. Soil moisture is a key factor for the effect of this product. Under appropriate humidity, the weeding effect is good, for dry weather, it is not good so this product should be mixed immediately with soil after application. As well as that, because of broad spectrum, MSDS should be carefully read to avoid drug injury.
