Key crops and application rates

Metribuzin inhibits the photosynthesis of grass and broadleaf weeds. Used pre-emergent susceptible weeds and crop seedlings emerge through treated soil, but 2 – 5 days later the weeds show chlorosis and necrosis. Plants treated post-emergent show chlorosis and necrosis between leaf veins, followed by wilting and death.
