Behaviour of glufosinate-ammonium in the environment - degradation and effect on the ecosystem

, : Behaviour of glufosinate-ammonium in the environment - degradation and effect on the ecosystem. Zeitschrift fur Pflanzenkrankheiten und Pflanzenschutz (Sonderheft 13): 459-468

Studies with lufosinate-ammonium showed that the compound was rapidly and completely broken down in both soil and water. The most important metabolites were Hoe 061517 (3-methylphosphinico-acetic acid) and Hoe 064619 (2-methylphosphinico-acetic acid). No percolation of glufosinate-ammonium into the groundwater was evident.

In the tests reported, fenoxaprop-ethyl was rapidly degraded in the soil (by 50 and 90% after 1-5 and 20-40 days, resp.). Both the parent compound and its metabolites were strongly adsorbed to soil particles. No-effect levels for the organisms tes...
