Atrazine is a selective systemic herbicide which is photosynthetic electron transport inhibitor at the photosystem II receptor site. It get absorbed principally through the roots, but also through the foliage, with translocation acropetally in the xylem and accumulation in the apical meristems and leaves. It is used for pre and post emergence control of annual broad-leaved weeds and annual grasses in maize, sorghum, sugar cane etc.
a) Mammalian toxicity: WHO, U, Unlikely to present Acute Hazardous. b) Environmental toxicity: In animals, following oral administration, atrazine is rapidly and completely metabolized, primarily by oxidative de-alkylation of the amino group. It is moderately toxic to Birds. It is highly toxic to fishes. It is highly toxic for Daphnia. It is highly toxic to algae. It is less toxic for bees.
