Many herbicides such as terbacil, bromacil, metribucin and metamitron are photosynthesis inhibitors (LAFER, 2010).
Weed control generally improved when PRE herbicide treatments were followed by postemergence (POST) applications of diuron [N'-(3, 4-dichlorophenyl)-N,N-dimethylurea], metribuzin [4-amino-6-(1,1-dimethylethyl)-3-(methylthio)-1,2,4-triazin_ 5(4H)-one]), terbacil [5-chloro-3-(1,1-dimethylethyl)6-methyl-2,4(1H,3H)-pyrimidinedione], and/or oxyfluorfen.
