Abstract

Alachlor [α-chloro-2′6′-diethyl-N-methoxymethylacetanilide or 2-chloro-N(2,6-diethylphenyl)-N-(methoxymethyl)acetamide], also known as Lasso®, is an herbicide whose major use (99%) is in preemergence application to field corn, soybeans, and peanuts. Its structure and properties are shown in Table 1.
