Adsorption, leaching, and dissipation of pyroxasulfone and two chloroacetamide herbicides
Pyroxasulfone is a new pyrazole herbicide that controls weeds by inhibiting very long chain fatty acid synthesis. This mechanism of action places pyroxasulfone in the Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) group 15 or Herbicide Resistant Action Committee (HRAC) group K3 herbicides that include s-metolachlor and dimethenamid-p. Dimethenamid-p and s-metolachlor are referred to in literature as acetamide, acetanilide, chloroacetamide, or chloroacetanilide herbicides. In this thesis, these two herbicides are referred to as chloroacetamide herbicides based on the HRAC classification. The soil ...
