Metribuzin is a triazinone herbicide that inhibits photosynthesis in susceptible plant by binding to a protein of the photosystem II complex. Foliar applied Metribuzin is moderately absorbed into the plant and translocation is also upward. Due to its root and leaf systemicity, Metribuzin can be used as a pre- and post-emergence herbicide. If used as pre-emergence herbicide, Metribuzin efficacy relies on the presence of moisture in the soil for broad spectrum weed control. However, the method and time of application of metribuzin, depends on the type of sowing.
