Atrazine is a triazine herbicide commonly used in agriculture to control broadleaf and grass weeds. It is highly selective, and applied to the soil or very early in the postemergent phase.
|Mechanism of Action||Atrazine binds to the D1 protein of the photosystem II complex, interfering with electron transport and CO2 fixation.|
