  • The majority of herbicide within the soil at any given moment is bound to soil colloids, only a small fraction is in solution where it is available to control weeds
  • The positive charge on triazines increase adsorption, so triazines are more active in high pH soils. Plus, binding to colloids increases degradation rates, thus persistence increases in alkaline soils
  • Too much rain can dilute herbicide within profile or cause it to reach crop seed (dicamba)
  • As soils dry, more herbicide moves onto colloids, therefore reducing the performance of herbicides. In this illustration, the moist soil has 3X the ‘killing power’ as the dry soil

  • Fate of Soil-Applied Herbicides
  • Pools of Herbicide in Soil Desorption Bound to In soil soil solution Adsorption
  • Pools of Herbicide in Soil Desorption Bound to soil Adsorption In soil solution
  • Soil Properties InfluencingHerbicide Adsorption• Mineral components – Sand – Silt – Clay• Organic matter (humus) – 4 to 20 times more adsorptive than clay
  • Organic matter vs crop residue
  • Retention of atrazine on crop residue Soil Residue 100 80% of applied herbicide 60 40 20 0 0 0.2" 0.5" 1.0" Cumulative rainfall Ghadiri et al. 1984. Univ. Nebraska

  • Herbicide rates by soil type Metribuzin rate recommendations (lbs) < 2% OM 2 to 4% OM > 4% OM Coarse Do not use ½ 2/3 Medium ½ to 2/3 2/3 to 5/6 5/6 to 1 Fine 2/3 to 5/6 5/6 to 1 1 to 1 1/6 Corvus rate recommendations (fl oz) Coarse soils, 2.0 % OM or less All other soils 3.33 5.6
  • Influence of soil pH on soilrelations of herbicides• Triazines – High pH: less adsorption, greater persistence• Sulfonylureas – High pH: greater persistence• Imidazolinones, isoxaflutole – Low pH: greater persistence
  • Influence of Rain onPRE Herbicide Performance• Leaching – Pro: Move to depth where weed seeds germinate – Con: Can dilute herbicide and reach tile lines/groundwater• Amount of herbicide in solution
  • Herbicide Activation Herbicide Soil profile (upper 2”)

  • Summary• Only a small fraction of PRE herbicides is absorbed by plants• Only herbicide present in soil water available for absorption by weeds• Sorption characteristics of a herbicide critical in determining performance
