Information @ a Glance

General Information

  • Trifluralin is a pre-emergent herbicide belonging to the dinitroaniline chemical family.
  • Trifluralin is a man-made chemical that looks like a yellowish-orange solid or crystal and it is odorless.
  • Trifluralin is available in granular and emulsifiable concentrate formulations.
  • Trifluralin is a pre-emergent soil herbicide used to control annual grasses and broadleaved weeds.
  • It is registered for use in Canada on ornamentals, shelterbelts, terrestrial food/feed crops, oil seed and fibre production crops.


  • Trifluralin may be monitored in water by extraction with a solvent such as dichloromethane and quantification
    by gas chromatography with electron capture detection.
  • A highly sensitive immunosensor using opticalwaveguide lightmode spectroscopy (OWLS)was developed for the detection of the herbicide trifluralin.
  • Slow release of trifluralin to inhibit root intrusion into drip irrigation emitters is a well-known technology.
  • Trifluralin was extracted from the potting substrate and quantified using gas chromatographic techniques.


  • Trifluralin is usually used as a spray or a soil treatment in the pre-emergent control of weeds.
    Trifluralin is a commonly used pre-emergence herbicide.
  • Trifluralin is registered for use on an immense number of food crops, most notably broccoli, cabbage, onions, a number of leafy green vegetables, beans, tomatoes, potatoes, wheat, soybeans, sugar beet, and sugar cane.
  • Trifluralin is used to protect ornamental plants, such as trees, herbaceous plants, woody shrubs, and vines.
  • It may be used on golf courses and recreational lawns.


  • Trifuralin is a dinitroaniline compound used as a selective preemergence herbicide. It is licensed and used in
    Yugoslavia on approx. 30% of agricultural areas.
  • Trifluralin [2,6-dinitro-N,N-dipropyl-4-(trifluoromethyl)- benzenamine] ranks among the most commonly used
    herbicides in the United States.
  • The interim maximum acceptable concentration (IMAC) for trifluralin in drinking water is 0.045 mg/L
    (45 mg/L).
  • The U.S. EPA reported that trifluralin is removed with 100% effectiveness by conventional treatment
    using alum, sedimentation and filtration.
  • In the southeastern United States, during the warmer months of the growing season, trifluralin dissipates quickly
    in soilless substrates.
