  • Mode of Action

    • Goal inhibits specific enzyme, Protoporphyinogen oxidase, which leads to accumulation of phototoxic heme and chlorophyll precursors, which in presence of light, produce activated oxygen species. 
    • These oxygen species disrupts membrane. Sunlight is essential for performance of Oxyfluorfen.

Always read and follow label directions.
