Terbacil

Terbacil is a general use herbicide that is effective in the control of annual weeds and perennial grasses in sugarcane, apples, alfalfa, peaches, mints, and pecans. The mechanism of action appears to be interference with photosynthesis, although it's chemical structure mimics that of RNA components. The pesticide is applied to soil surfaces during or before active weed and grass growth.
