Bromacil

Bromacil is a chemical compound that provides effective results in nonselective herbicides. Used largely as a bareground herbicide, bromacil is also known for providing exceptional selective weed control on a number of crops such as citrus fruit and pineapple as well as controlling various perennial grasses.

Solutions Pest & Lawn is glad to have products containing bromacil in our inventory of herbicides. On this page, you can learn some interesting facts about this bromacil and its history, its mode of action as well as shop our line of bromacil-based herbicides.

What Is Bromacil?

Bromacil (chemical name: C9H13BrN2O2) is an organic compound which is commercially used as a herbicide in the US. Bromacil is one of group of compounds called substituted uracils. These materials are often used as broad-spectrum herbicides used for nonselective weed and brush control on non-agricultural lands ( utility right-of-ways, railroads, electrical switching stations, and industrial yards) as well as for selective weed control on a limited number of crops, such as citrus fruit and pineapple. The herbicide is preferably sprayed or spread dry on the soil surface just before, or during, a period of active weed growth.

Bromacil was first registered as a pesticide in 1961 and since then has been delivering satisfying results to whomever purchases the product to eliminate unwanted invasive weeds and brush.

How Bromacil Works

Bromacil works by interfering with photosynthesis. Photosynthesis— which is an essential part of the formation of green, living plants—happens when light energy is converted to chemical energy needed for food production. Bromacil enters the plant through the root zone and starts moving throughout the plant, putting a damper on the photosynthesis process.This interferes with product growth and causes the plant to die.

Bromacil comes in a variety of formulations such as emulsifiable concentrate, granular, liquid ready-to-use, pellets or tablets, pressurized liquid, liquid soluble concentrate, wettable powder, and water dispersible granules (dry flowable).

Bromacil is applied mainly via sprayers including boom, hand-held, knapsack, compressed air, tank-type, and power sprayers. Bromacil is also applied using aerosol, shaker, or sprinkler cans. Solid forms of bromacil 2 are spread using granule applicators and spreaders.

Is Bromacil Safe To Use?

While bromacil has a low level of toxicity, it is toxic enough that dry formulations containing bromacil must bear the word "Caution" and liquid formulas must signal "Warning.” Care should be exercised when spraying Bromacil on plants because it will also stop the photosynthesis of the adjacent non-target plants, therefore killing them.

 

Bromacil should never be used in residential or recreation areas for risk of exposure. Bromacil is slightly toxic if individuals accidentally eat or touch residues and practically nontoxic if inhaled. Bromacil is a mild eye irritant and a very slight skin irritant.

 

According to EPA studies using laboratory animals, bromacil is slightly toxic by the oral, dermal, and inhalation routes and has been placed in Toxicity Category IV (the lowest of four categories) for these effects.

 

This herbicide should be stored in a cool, dry place and after any handling a thorough hand-washing is advised. As with any of the herbicides we carry, we recommend using protective equipment before applying. Gloves, protective glasses and long sleeve clothing should be a bare minimum level of protection. Please refer to the product label for specific safety instructions.
