Information @ a Glance

  • Metsulfuron-methyl is an herbicide used to control select broadleaf weeds, trees and brush, and some annual grasses.
  • Metsulfuron-methyl is the active ingredient (60%) in the herbicide products Escort XP and Metsulfuron Methyl 60 DF.
  • Metsulfuron methyl is a sulfonyl urea herbicide initially registered by E.I. DuPont in 1986.
  • Metsulfuron-methyl has low to very low toxicity if people eat, touch, or inhale residues.
  • Persistence of metsulfuron-methyl in soil mostly depends on soil properties, tillage management and environmental factors.
  • Plants rapidly take up metsulfuron-methyl at the roots and through the leaves. It moves throughout the plant, but it does not last.
  • The principal degradation pathways of metsulfuron-methyl in soil include chemical hydrolysis and microbial degradation
  • Metsulfuron-methyl is a residual sulfonylurea compound, used as a selective pre- and post emergence herbicide for broadleaf weeds and some
    annual grasses.
  • Metsulfuron-methyl is commonly used in forestry situations. It is usually used together with other herbicides that control the weeds not susceptible
    to metsulfuron.
  • Its mode of action is by inhibiting cell division in the shoots and roots of the plant, and it is biologically active at low use rates.
  • Metsulfuron methyl is used for control of broad leaf weeds like Chenopodium album, Melilotus indica, Medicago hispida, Lathyrus aphaca,
    Anagallis arvensis, Vicia sativa, Vicia hirsura, Circiuma arvense in Wheat and Eclipta alba, Luwigia parviflora, Marsilea quadrifoliata in Rice.
  • Commercial metsulfuron methyl products generally contain one or more inert ingredients.
  • Metsulfuron methyl is applied by aerial spraying; spraying from ground equipment or a handgun sprayer.
  • Sulfonylurea herbicides have high herbicidal activity at low application rates. Among sulfonylurea products, metsulfuron-methyl [methyl 2-(4-methoxy-6-methyl-
    1,3,5-triazine- 2- ylcarbamoylsulfamoyl) benzoate] is widely used due to its selectivity against a wide range of weeds in cereal, pasture, and plantation crop.
  • Two commercial formulations of metsulfuron methyl are available in the United States, Ally and Escort, both produced by Du Pont as a dry flowable granule, which is mixed with water and a surfactant and then applied as a spray.
  • Application of metsulfuron methyl during dewatered conditions provided excellent control of denseflower knotweed,
    and frequency of desirable aquatic grasses doubled within this treatment area
