Amidosulfuron
Last updated: 27/04/2021
(Also known as: HOE 075032)

SUMMARY
Amidosulfuron is a broad spectrum herbicide that has approval for use in the EU. It is volatile, highly soluble in water and, based on its chemical properties, has a high potential for leaching to groundwater. It is not persistent in soil systems but may be persistent in water under certain conditions. It has a low mammalian toxicity and would not be expected to bioaccumulate. Amidosulfuron is moderately toxic to most terrestrial and aquatic species.
