Alachlor's production may result in its release to the environment through various waste streams; its use as a herbicide will result in its direct release to the environment. If released to air, a vapor pressure of 2.290×10-5 mm Hg at 25 deg C indicates alachlor will exist in both the vapor and particulate phases. Vapor-phase alachlor will be degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be 8.5 hrs. Particulate-phase alachlor will be removed from the atmosphere by wet or dry deposition. Alachlor does not absorb light at wavelengths >290 nm and therefore is not expected to be susceptible to direct photolysis by sunlight. If released to soil, alachlor is expected to have high to low mobility based upon a Koc range of 120 to 2,138. Mobility decreases with an increase in organic carbon and clay content. Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon a Henry's Law constant of 8.32×10-9 atm-cu m/mole. Half-lives of 2-3 weeks under aerobic conditions indicate that biodegradation is a moderately important environmental fate process in soil. When incorporated into soil samples, alachlor degraded 22 to 39% following 8-hour exposure to 8 hr sunlight, the rate of degradation being enhanced by low pH and low soil organic matter. If released into water, alachlor may adsorb to some suspended solids and sediment based upon the Koc range. Approximately 20% degradation after 30 day incubation in lake water indicates that biodegradation is not expected to be an important environmental fate process in water. Volatilization from water surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based upon this compound's Henry's Law constant. A BCF of 6 suggests bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low. Hydrolysis is not expected to be an important environmental fate process since this compound lacks functional groups that hydrolyze under environmental condition. A 1% degradation in 135 minutes of alachlor in aqueous solution irradiated with light from 300 nm sunlamps suggests that photolysis in water is a slow environmental fate process. Occupational exposure to alachlor may occur through inhalation and dermal contact with this compound at workplaces where alachlor is produced or used. Monitoring and use data indicate that the general population may be exposed to alachlor via inhalation of ambient air, ingestion of food and drinking water. (SRC)

Usage: Herbicide reported by R. F. Husted et al. (Proc. North Cent. Weed Control Conf., 1966, 21, 44). Introduced by Monsanto Co. Patents: US 3442945; US 3547620. Manufacturers: Comlets; Crystal; ÉMV; Krishi Rasayan; Makhteshim-Agan; Monsanto; Pilarquim; RPG; Sinon. Acts by inhibition of protein synthesis and root elongation; more recent research suggests chloroacetamides may inhibit synthesis of very long chain fatty acids (J. Schmalfuss et al., Abstr. Meeting WSSA, Toronto, 40, 117-118, 2000; P. Böger, Abstr. III Int. Weed Control Congr., Brazil 2000). Maize tolerance is attributed to rapid detoxification by glutathione transferases.  

Application: Selective systemic herbicide, absorbed principally by germinating shoots, but also by the roots, with translocation throughout the plant, and accumulation mainly in vegetative parts rather than in reproductive parts. Used pre-emergence at 1.68-4.48 kg/ha to control annual grasses and many broad-leaved weeds in cotton, brassicas, maize, oilseed rape, peanuts, radish, soya beans and sugar cane.
