After the herbicide has been entered into the soil, it remains in the upper layer thereof. The active substance of the preparation - acetochlor – effects on sprouting weeds, penetrates into the tissue of strands and roots, actively inhibits the growth and division of cells, and infringes the protein and lipid metabolism therein. Changes in metabolism caused by acetochlor are an irreversible process, resulting in the growth of the sprouts to stop and their death without appearing on the surface of the soil. In compliance with the technology of making the preparation, SAHARA ensures no weeds within 4-8 weeks.
