Information @ a Glance
Linuron is a herbicide used to control germinating and newly
emerging grasses and broad-leafed weeds.
It is applied to agricultural crops, ornamental bulbs, and poplar
trees for use in shelterbelts in the mid-west.
Pure linuron occurs as a white crystalline solid, colourless
crystals, fine flakes or coarse powder.It is also odourless.
Trade names include Afalon, Garnitan, Linex, Linorox, Linurex, Lorox,
Premalin, Sarclex, and Sinuron.
Linuron is used as a selective herbicide in wide range of crops such
as asparagus, carrots, celery (post transplant), cotton (layby),
field corn, parsnips, potatoes, sorghum, soybeans, sweet corn
(layby), wheat (Pacific Northwest), and for short-term control of
annual weeds in noncrop areas such as roadsides and fence rows.
Linuron is very toxic to aquatic organisms and likely to be be
harmful to other wildlife.
Linuron absorbs strongly to soil and sediments and degrades within
3-4 months in most soils.
It is not expected to leach significantly and releases to water are
expected to be restricted to spills or runoff.
Bioconcentration in water dwelling organisms should be minimal. In
the atmosphere it is degraded fairly quickly (a few days).
No significant global impacts are considered likely.
If inhaled, remove from
exposure and have patient lie down and keep quiet. If patient is not
breathing, start artificial respiration immediately.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a
physician if necessary.
If spilt on the skin,
remove contaminated clothing and wash affected areas of skin
If concentrate is
splashed in eyes, flush with running water for at least 15 minutes.
