Chlortoluron's production and use (not marketed in U.S.) as a herbicide may have resulted in its release directly to the environment. If released to the atmosphere, chlortoluron should exist solely in the particulate phase based on an experimental vapor pressure of 3.6×10-8 mm Hg at 25 deg C. Particulate-phase chlortoluron may be physically removed from the air by wet and dry deposition. In soil, measured Koc values averaged from 150-420 with adsorption dependent on the percentage of organic matter present in the soil. These values indicate that chlortoluron will generally have moderate mobility in soil. Biodegradation is expected to be a major fate process for chlortoluron in soil; degradation half-lives range from 4-16 weeks. Monomethyl chlortoluron and N-demethylated chlortoluron were major metabolites of chlortoluron indicating that biodegradation proceeds via cleavage of the C-N bond. Volatilization from moist soil or water surfaces is not expected based on an estimated Henry's Law constant of 1.4×10-10 atm-cu m/mol. In water, chlortoluron may adsorb to particulates and organic matter in the water column. Based on soil studies, biodegradation may also be an important fate process in water. Bioconcentration of chlortoluron in aquatic organisms is not expected to be a major fate process with an estimated BCF value of 40. The general population may be exposed to chlortoluron through the ingestion of contaminated drinking water in countries where chlortoluron is used. (SRC)

Usage: Herbicide reported by Y. L'Hermite et al. (C. R. Journ. Etud. Herbic. Conf., COLUMA, 5th, 1969, II, 349). Introduced by Ciba AG (now Syngenta AG). Patents: BE 728267; GB 1255258. Manufacturers: ÉMV; Jingma; Makhteshim-Agan; Nufarm GmbH; Syngenta; Synthesia; United Phosphorus. Photosynthetic electron transport inhibitor at the photosystem II receptor site.

Application: Selective herbicide, absorbed by the roots and foliage. Effective at 1.5-3.0 kg/ha, both as a residual soil-acting herbicide and a contact foliar-spray, against many broad-leaved and grass weeds of winter cereals, especially against Alopecurus myosuroides. It is combined with mecoprop to improve the control of Galium, Papaver and Veronica spp. Phytotoxicity Some varieties of wheat and barley may be injured.
