Clomazone is an agrochemical that comprises isoxazole bonded with 2-chlorobenzyl group. It is a broad spectrum herbicide utilized to control broadleaf weeds and annual grasses in cotton, soybeans, peas, pumpkins, winter squash, tobacco, sweet potatoes, and fallow wheat fields.
Clomazone suppresses synthesis of carotenoids, chlorophyll, and other photosynthetic pigments in plants by inhibiting biosynthesis of deoxyxylulose 5-phosphate synthase. It is applied in pre-emergence of weeds or in early post-emergence of the crop depending on the crop, timing, and geographical area. It is available in market under various brand names such as Command, Gamit, Magister, Kalif, Commence, and Merit.
