Herbicide Injury: ACCase Inhibitors - Group 1 Graminicides (sethoxydim, fluazifop-p-butyl, quizalofop-p-ethyl) injury to Corn

 

Group 1 graminicide (ACCase) injury on corn appears as intervenal chlorosis on newer leaves. Older leaves may show red or purple. The growing point turns brown and dies. The top of the plant can be easily pulled out of the whorl. New growth dies first, such that the plant appears to take considerable time to die after application.
