Abstract

Many methods are described for weed control in corn, however, it is observed that in practice the chemical control with the use of herbicides is the most predominant, whether for its enhanced operability, as well as better control efficiency and lower cost. However, it is essential that chemicals be properly applied, that is preserved the final quality of the harvested products, as well as all its natural resources that sustain production, especially land and water. Given the above, the fate of herbicides in the environment is governed by processes of sorption, degradation, and transport of the molecule, such as volatilization, leaching and runoff, in addition to the interactions between these processes. The mesotrione acts on the inhibition of carotenoids, the enzyme HPPD and its sorption is promoted by functionalization of the aliphatic structures in the composition of organic matter. The S-metolachlor is a non-ionizable compound, which belongs to the chemical group chloroacetamides, and shows great variability in residence time in the soil. The Terbuthylazine photosystem II inhibitor, belonging to the chemical group of triazines, has a high potential risk of groundwater contamination. In this context, this project aims to study the behavior of the soil herbicides mesotrione + S-metolachlor + terbuthylazine applied to mixture and isolation. The results serve to introduce differences regarding behavior in the soil of S-metolachlor + mesotrione + terbuthylazine applied together, linking the positive and negative aspects of interaction between these molecules and the understanding of the behavior of molecules applied separately. Although few studies involving the behavior of herbicides on Brazilian soils under tropical climate conditions are also crucial for the efficiency of weed control in corn, because high rates of sorption can compromise the effectiveness of the herbicide.
