Tritosulfuron
Last updated: 16/11/2021
(Not known by any other names)

SUMMARY
A herbicide used to control a wide range of broad-leaved weeds. It is moderately soluble in water and has a low volatility. It is not expected to be persistent in soil or water systems. Tritosulfuron tends to have a low to moderate toxicity to most fauna and flora. It has a low oral mammalian toxicity and may also be an irritant.
