Metsulfuron is an extremely potent herbicide on some annual and perennial broad-leaved species.
It is a selective, translocated herbicide that is mainly absorbed through leaves though root absorption can occur. Its main uses are for broad-leaved weed (especially sorrel) control in cereals, as a tank mix with glyphosate for pre-plant weed control and for the control of perennial weeds such as bracken and blackberry. It is of low toxicity to mammals, birds and fish. Metsulfuron acts on the ALS enzyme in plants which is not present in animals and this is the main reason for its low toxicity. It presents little hazard in the environment because of its low rates of use, low toxicity and quick degradation in field situations.
