Total-Up 48 SL


Total-Up 48SL is a broad-spectrum, non-selective systemic herbicide that contains ‘glyphosate’ as active ingredient. It is used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses that compete with crops. Glyphosate is absorbed through foliage, and minimally through roots, and transported to growing points. It inhibits a specific enzyme pathway involved in the synthesis of three aromatic amino acids: tyrosine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine. Therefore, it is only effective on actively growing plants and not effective as a pre-emergence herbicide.

Mode of Action: It controls weeds by inhibiting the synthesis of aromatic amino acids necessary for protein formation in susceptible plants.

Class: Organophosphorus herbicide
