Description : TRICLOPYR BUTOXY ETHYL ESTER is a butyl cellosolve ester of triclopyr, selective systemic herbicide which is rapidly absorbed through the roots and foliage. It translocates throughout the plant, accumulating in meristematic tissues and inducing auxin type responses. It is used for the control of woody plants and broadleaf weeds in grassland, uncultivated land, industrial areas, plantation crops and rice fields.
