Group 5, 15 and 27 herbicides
Mode of Action
Lumax EZ contains the active ingredients S-Metolachlor (and R-enantiomer), Atrazine (and related triazines) and Mesotrione.
Mesotrione (Group 27) is a selective herbicide that interferes with the weed’s photosynthetic ability so that it is unable to protect itself from the sun, resulting in bleaching and death.
S-metolachlor (Group 15) is a selective herbicide that restricts root and shoot development, so weeds fail to grow.
Atrazine (Group 5) inhibits photosynthesis. AAtrex is actively absorbed by roots and foliage. It is translocated to the top of the plant and accumulates in the leaf margins and the growing points. By blocking photosynthesis, the growth of intact weeds is inhibited.
