trifluralin

Parasitology A dinitroaniline herbicide, which at micromolar concentrations selectively inhibits the proliferation and differentiation of Leishmania mexicana amazonensis, by binding to leishmania tubulin, suggesting potential use of trifluralin as an economical and safe antiparasitic agent. See Leishmaniasis.

In a study with selectivity of residual herbicides to common bean, the selectivity level of dimethenamid and s-metolachlor varied according to the applied dose, while the herbicides pendimethalin and trifluralin did not change.
Another herbicide that presents difficulty to transpose from the sugarcane straw to the soil is trifluralin. This product was not detected in the soil under mulch conditions, even after a rainfall of 20mm applied 24 hours after application of the product on the field, unlike what was observed with atrazine in the study of RODRIGUES et al.
reduced maternal weight gain, in agreement to previous findings for Trifluralin treated rats and rabbits (BYRD et al., 1995).

To maintain the planting beds through the summer months, drip irrigation tubing was maintained and flushed with sulfuric acid ([H.sub.2]S[O.sub.4]) [General Chemical, Syracuse, New York) twice a month, and plots were irrigated once a week (unless it rained) and kept weed-free using herbicides including glyphosate and Trifluralin, Treflan[R] EC, Monterey chemical company, Fresno, California.
