Abstract/Contents:"Mefluidide (N-[2,4-dimethyl-5-([(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl]amino) phenyl]acetamide) is now registered with EPA as a plant growth regulator for use on turf grasses. The turf species presently labeled include Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, common bermudagrass, red fescue, chewing fescue, St. Augustine, centipede, quackgrass, perennial ryegrass, Reed canarygrass, and kikuyugrass. Growth regulator activity includes grass retardation and seedhead suppression. Woody ornamental and tree growth regulation have also been noted with this chemical. Other areas of research include weed control in soybeans and as an agent to enhance quality in forage crops, including pasture grasses. It is formulated as a diethanolamine salt solution and contains 2.0 lbs mefluidide per gallon (240 grams per liter). The formulation is stable under normal conditions of storage. Present toxicological information indicates that the formulated chemical has oral (rat) and dermal (rabbit) LD50 of >5000 mg/kg. The formulation is nonirritating to skin, minimum irritating to eyes, and is of a low order of toxicity to fish and wildlife."
