Bio-Chemical Mode of Action: Florasulam belongs to the ALS (Acetolactate Synthase) Inhibitors group of herbicides. Acetolactate synthase is an important enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of branched-chain amino acids. ALS inhibitors interrupt this process causing the plant to initially become chlorotic before necrosis of plant tissues followed by whole plant death occurs.
Mobility: Florasulam is absorbed through both the shoots and roots of plants. It is a systemic penetrant which means that the active substance can be translocated downwards through the plant within the phloem (sugar conducting tissues) and upwards through the plant within the xylem (water conducting tissues).
Application Timing: ALS inhibitors are best applied when the weeds are actively growing. They are more effective when target plants are young and in their vegetative phases.
Bio-Chemical Mode of Action: Fluroxypyr belongs to the synthetic auxin or plant growth regulator group of herbicides. Synthetic auxins work by inducing rapid abnormal cell growth and development in the stems, petioles and leaves of susceptible plants causing cell bursts and ultimately cell and plant death.
Mobility: Fluroxypyr is absorbed through the shoots of a plant. It is a systemic penetrant which means that the active substance can be translocated downwards through the plant within the phloem (sugar conducting tissues) and upwards through the plant within the xylem (water conducting tissues).
Application Timing: Synthetic auxins are best applied when the weeds are actively growing. They are generally more effective when target plants are younger and in their vegetative phases.
