The deleterious effects of trifluralin in seeds and roots of maize, within a 6-h treatment period, were evaluated in laboratory trials, using concentrations ranging from 9 (control) to 0.16 mg/litre. As the concentration was increased, there was a concomitant decrease in seed germination. Reduction of primary root length was observed by either seed or root exposure to the herbicide.
