Actinol is a type of nitrile pesticide intended for weed control.
The chemical's name is Ioxynil, and its trade names are Actinol Emulsion and Actinol B Emulsion, both of which have the same ingredients. It is used as a herbicide mainly in wheat and onion fields.
Actinol has a short half-life of 7 to 8 days after use and is not soil persistent, so it does not affect subsequent crops. It also acts quickly at high temperatures and slowly at low temperatures, and may cause crop damage when temperatures exceed 20°C (68°F).
Features of Actinol, when used during the growing season, have little effect on monocotyledonous plants such as grasses and lilies, and a very strong effect on red-leaved plants. For this reason, it is used to weed annual broadleaf weeds in fields of wheat, onions, garlic, soybeans, and red beans.
Actinol is a contact herbicide and is not absorbed by plant roots. It does not affect potatoes or other crops in the soil because Actinol does not migrate in the soil.
