NOMENCLATURE Common name butachlor (BSI, draft E-ISO, (m) draft F-ISO, ANSI, WSSA, JMAF); no name (France) IUPAC name N-butoxymethyl-2-chloro-2',6'-diethylacetanilide Chemical Abstracts name N-(butoxymethyl)-2-chloro-N-(2,6-diethylphenyl)acetamide CAS RN [23184-66-9]

Chemistry
Selective systemic herbicide, absorbed primarily by the germinating shoots, and secondarily by the roots, with translocation throughout the plant, giving higher concentrations in vegetative parts than in reproductive parts.

 Use

Used pre-emergence for the control of annual grasses and certain broad-leaved weeds in rice, both seeded and transplanted. It shows selectivity in barley, cotton, peanuts, sugar beet, wheat and several brassica crops. Effective rates range from 1.0-4.5 kg a.i./ha. Activity is dependent on water availability such as rainfall following treatment, overhead irrigation or applications to standing water as in rice culture.
