Preprocessing procedure
Refer to the instruction

Test procedure
1. Prepare the buffer solution follow the product instruction.
2. Take 2g samples (tubers--4g, Strip shaped—2g), cut cabbage into pieces about 1cm.Take the cross-section or epidermis of the tubers into the sample cup, add 10ml of buffer solution. Shake for 1 ~ 2mins, pour out the extract solution, and stand for 2mins as test sample. If the extract is turbid or too many impurities, it can be measured after filtering.
3. Prepare the test card and the sample stand for room temperature and use the test card within 1h if unsealed.
4. Take out and place the test card on the flat desk. Pipette 2-3drops of sample, (about 60-80µl), into the sample well (no bubble).
5. Reacting for 3-5mins, then read the result. Result after 30mins is invalid.

Interpretation of results
Negative: line C & T appear
Positive: only line C appear
Invalid: line C does not appear or only the line T appear

Trivia questions : What is acetochlor?

About acetochlor

The pure acetochlor is a pale yellow liquid, and the original drug shows a deep red color because of impurities. Stable in nature, not easily volatile and photolytic. Insoluble in water, easily soluble in organic solvents. The melting point is greater than 0 °C, the vapor pressure is greater than 133.3pa, and the boiling point is greater than 200 °C. The relative density with water at 30 °C was 1.11, and the solubility in water was slightly 223 mg / l.

Acetochlor trade names

Acetochlor is a herbicide widely used on corn in Minnesota, and its use has expanded to soybeans and sugar beets. Common trade names for acetochlor products include Harness, Keystone, SureStart, Surpass, Volley and Warrant*.

Acetochlor mode of action

Acetochlor is a selective pre-emergent herbicide that is mainly absorbed by the cotyledon of a monocotyledonous plant or the hypocotyl of a dicotyledonous plant. After absorption, it conducts upwards, mainly by inhibiting protein synthesis and inhibiting cell growth.  Young root growth stops, and then dies. Gramineous weeds have a stronger ability to absorb acetochlor than broad-leaved weeds, so the effect of controlling gramineous weeds is better than that of broad-leaved weeds. The retention period of acetochlor in the soil is about 45 days. It is mainly degraded by microorganisms, and its mobility in the soil is small. It is mainly maintained in the 0-3 cm soil layer.

Acetochlor uses

Acetochlor is a widely used herbicide. Developed by Monsanto in the United States in 1971, it is one of the most important herbicides in the world and one of the most widely used herbicides in China.

Acetochlor herbicides

Annual gramineous weeds and broad-leaved weeds with small seeds. It has special effects on annual weeds such as horse tang, foxtail, goosegrass, yarrow, chrysanthemum, wheat maid, wild oats, bluegrass, hard grass, thrush, etc. Broadleaf weeds, such as Apalis, Cattle Stellate, Cuscuta, also have certain control effects, but the effect is worse than that of grasses and it is not effective for perennial weeds.

Acetochlor toxicity

Acetochlor poisoning

Acetochlor is an amide herbicide, and its toxic mechanism is mainly through the action of non-specific amidase in the liver, which is rapidly hydrolyzed to the corresponding acid or in some cases excreted in its original form, which affects the body Oxygen levels, causing suffocation and death.

Acetochlor poisoning symptoms

The main symptoms are nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, oral mucosal damage, and severe liver failure and renal failure. There may be headaches and dizziness in the nervous system. This amide herbicide can cause cyanemia in methemoglobinemia, decrease in blood pressure, respiratory depression, and incontinence.

Acetochlor poisoning treatment

There is no effective antidote for acetochlor poisoning. While performing routine medical emergency (such as gastric lavage, oxygen absorption and fluid replacement), blood purification therapy should be performed quickly.
Blood purification therapy, HD + HP hemodialysis combined with hemoperfusion, relies on the adsorbent in the hemoperfusion device to adsorb toxins from the human body.

Acetochlor poisoning prevention

(1) Respiratory system protection: When the dust concentration in the air exceeds the standard, it is recommended to wear a self-priming filter dust mask. Wear an air respirator for emergencies or evacuation.
(2) Eye protection: wear chemical safety protective glasses.
(3) Body protection: penetrate gas-type gas-proof clothing and wear latex gloves.

Acetochlor vs Metolachlor

Metolachlor is a selective pre-emergent herbicide that is mainly absorbed by the coleoptiles of weeds and can also be absorbed by roots and seeds in small amounts. It mainly kills germinated weeds in the soil before emergence, and has no effect on the weeds that are unearthed. It can be adsorbed by soil particles, not easy to leak and volatilize, but can be decomposed by soil microorganisms. The validity period is about 35 days.
Acetochlor is a selective pre-emergent herbicide that is mainly absorbed by the cotyledons of monocotyledonous plants or the hypocotyls of dicotyledonous plants. After absorption, it conducts mainly by inhibiting protein synthesis and inhibiting cell growth. Young roots stop growing and then die. Gramineous weeds have a stronger ability to absorb acetochlor than broad-leaved weeds, so the effect of controlling gramineous weeds is better than broad-leaved weeds. The retention period of acetochlor in soil is about 45 days. It is mainly degraded by microorganisms and has a low mobility in soil. It is mainly maintained in a soil layer of 0-3 cm.

Summary

Acetochlor is rapidly metabolized in the environment, especially soil microorganisms have a significant degradation effect on acetochlor. Acetochlor is an amide herbicide, which can be metabolized by mammalian liver's N-methylphthalo-α canine urea hydrolase, hydrolyzed to 3,4-dichloroaniline, and finally produces aniline, which shows the toxicity of aniline. Acetochlor residues in agricultural products can seriously threaten the health of this consumer.
The Acetochlor Rapid Test For Agricultural Products kit provided by BALLYA can effectively detect whether Acetochlor residues are contained in agricultural products. This kit is not only simple to operate, but also has a short test time and high accuracy, and the test results comply with EU standards. Can effectively ensure the safety of agricultural products.
